CIUDAD JUAREZ - Faced with the threat of the increased spread of coronavirus across their borders, three northern Mexicans states are calling on President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to do more to stop people entering Mexico from the U.S.
The three states Tamaulipas, Coahuila and Nuevo Leon border Texas, which has more than 2,500 confirmed cases of the virus as of Sunday, based on more than 25,000 tests. Combined, the three Mexican states have over 90 cases, though the number of tests is not clear.
The urgent call comes just days before the April 5th - 12th Holy Week vacation period begins, a time when cross-border traffic traditionally spikes. Traditionally Mexicans head north to shop and Americans with ties to Mexico head south to visit families. Many of them use Interstate 35.
Mexican consul generals in the U.S, including at the Dallas consulate, are urging their paisanos, countrymen, to stay put during Holy Week.

Welcome to our world pal. Shoe is on the other foot now.
Oh my, how the worm has turned.
Too late folks. Way to late.
Maybe Mexico should build a wall?
Trump said they would pay for a wall !
Whatever you do, DON’T CLOSE THE BORDER!
The U.S. should have moved ALL of our troops from Europe and Asia to the Mexican border many years ago.
The border should have been sealed tight in the 1960’s, if not earlier!
Mexico may be taking a very active role in building the Wall. Now they have incentive.
You can cut the irony with a knife.
Well, then they would make the nasty, ole gringos pay for it. :o)
no brainer to close the border to all traffic - but AMLO doesn’t control all the areas on the border - the cartels do...
Mexico is a lawless corrupt oligarchy - build the WALL
Hey, Taco Land! Send us some dinero, ese! El Trumpo will build the wall for you. It will be a beautiful wall. You’ll love Trump’s big, strong, beautiful, amazing wall!
You know, if this whole CF ends up with a robust wall between US and The Land of Tacos, it may make up for the economic damage in the long run, because the two things that will MOST destroy this country are importing the Turd World to collect welfare, and putting our own population on welfare by shipping our jobs abroad.
Must be the modern-day Mexican version of "Remember the AMLO".
I agree with you 100%.
However, if that is done where would all the U.S. working mothers get the cheap nannies for their children?
Where would all the working folks get their gardeners?
Who would do all the housework for American families?
Where would all the pot heads and druggies get their daily fixes?
A CRISIS would be created.
ONE parent MIGHT have to stay home with the children.
One parent MIGHT have to mow a lawn.
One parent MIGHT have to clean the house.
No drugs??? I'll DIE without my "stuff." Die!!!!
Oh WOE is me!! What shall I do?
I feel SO sorry for them all.
Why not, o FR guru?
Lol. Or should I say "¡Jajaja!"??
The cartels are run by the same thugs who run the government, banks, police and military--a relatively few WEALTHY, POWERFUL families.
El Presidente is the JEFE, the boss of it all...the chief thug.
