Officials are looking into the possibility of another 30 day extension on non-essential travel into the United States from Mexico.
Late last week, Mexican Federal Government Officials including Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations announced that it would be seeking to extend the restrictions onto November 22.
“After reviewing the development of foreign the spread of Covid-19 in both countries Mexico has pushed for the extension to go another month,” wrote the Secretary of Foreign Relations.
On Monday acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf confirmed the restrictionary extension.
“To continue to limit the spread of COVID, the US, Mexico, & Canada will extend the restrictions on non-essential travel through Nov 21. We are working closely with Mexico & Canada to identify safe criteria to ease the restrictions in the future & support our border communities,” tweeted Wolf.
It has now been 7 months since the United States Federal Government called for non-essential travel restrictions along both Borders.
The restrictionary measures along the United States Border with Mexico have really put on a strain on the local economies.
Local businesses have also seen the fall of commerce with many closing down for good due to the decrease in revenues.
