Non-essential travel between U.S. and Mexico halted amid coronavirus crisis

Flanked by top U.S. officials, President Donald Trump announced that the United States and Mexico have agreed to restrict non-essential travel over their shared border in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Trump said his administration would invoke a health-focused statute to block migrants from either border from entering the United States illegally, saying illegal immigration threatens “to create a perfect storm” in combination with the virus.

The “non-essential” travel measures will restrict tourism at the border.
