The announcement of the imminent reopening of the border between the United States and Mexico it was greeted with joy by business owners punished, as well as by families separated by restrictions related to the covid-19.

After 19 months of closure, it will be in November when finally U.S. land borders will open to nonessential travel, which were largely limited during this time to jobs considered vital.

The new measures will allow those who have complete vaccination schedule, and have the immigration documents to do so, enter US territory regardless of the reason for your trip. It will be by January when essential employees are required who intend to enter the United States have a complete vaccination scheme.

Among the hardest hit are the retail outlets in border communities of the United States, as well as shopping malls, whose parking lots often looked crowded. The Mayor of San Diego considers very difficult to measure the economic impact of restrictionswhile in Nogales, Arizona, at least 40 main street retail stores in the city had to lower the curtain.

For Del Rio, in Texas, Mexican visitors make 65% of purchases to retailers, as recognized by the director of the local chamber of commerce, Blanca Larson. He added: “At the border we are not two different communities; rather we are one ”.

The reopening comes at a key moment: just in time for the holiday shopping season.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of National Security, said “pleased to take steps to resume regular transfers in a safe and sustainable manner.”
