Mexico calls on U.S. to open temporarily closed border crossings

The Mexican government asked the U.S. government to resume operations at the Baja California-California, Sonora-Arizona and Coahuila-Texas border crossings, the Mexican Foreign Ministry informed today.

In a press release, the Foreign Ministry indicated that it remains attentive to the temporary closures of the Piedras Negras-Eagle Pass I (Coahuila-Texas) crossings, as of November 27, 2023.

The Sonoyta-Lukeville (Sonora-Arizona), since December 4, 2023, and the pedestrian crossing called PedWest at El Chaparral-San Ysidro (Baja California-California), since December 9, 2023.

The closures were ordered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and by the revisions implemented by the Texas Department of Public Safety in Piedras Negras-Eagle Pass II and Ciudad Acuña-Del Rio (Coahuila-Texas).

The Mexican Foreign Ministry has been in permanent contact with CBP authorities at the federal, state and local levels to obtain timely information in this regard and to reestablish commercial operations at these crossings as soon as possible.

It warned that the implementation of the aforementioned unilateral measures will have a negative impact on trade and tourism in the region.

It is for this reason, he added, that the Government of Mexico calls on the Government of the United States to immediately resume operations and avoid significant economic losses on both sides of the border.

Finally, he reiterates Mexico’s commitment to work permanently in the search for a more efficient, prosperous and secure border.
