US-Mexico Partial Border Closure

Sabrina Rodriguez, Politico, Mar. 20, 2020

"The U.S. and Mexico on Friday agreed to temporarily close the border to nonessential travel in response to the coronavirus outbreak, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. ... Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf said Friday that North American trade would not be affected by the U.S.' agreement with Canada and Mexico to partially close the border. "Let me be clear that neither of these agreements with Canada or Mexico applies to lawful trade or commerce. Essential commerce activities will not be impacted. We will continue to maintain a strong and secure economic supply chain across our borders," Wolf said."
