I plan to cross northbound at Mariposa on Friday the 7th and catch a flight from Tucson to the frozen north. :( To my knowledge, Nogales has not been a target of the caravan folks. Do any of you foresee a problem for me there?

I live in AZ and watch the Phoenix news every night. Not a word of concern regarding the Nogales crossing

Nothing on Tucson news media about closing Nogales or Naco. There are a small number of caravan people in Aqua Prieta, across from Douglas but so far no word on closing the port at Douglas.

The situation is rather fluid, to say the least. There were no news reports that San Ysidro would be closed before that closure happened.

Keep in mind that there are at least 3-4 other caravans of migrants headed north. Their arrival at the border is unpredictable, as some of them do end up taking public transportation. I dont think ANY of the migrants have actually walked all the way from the southern Mexican border.

Keep abreast of the news about this, would be my advice. Too far in advance to predict. Like predicting weather more than five days out. Low percentage of accuracy, right now.

I drove down from Tucson today.  Looked like no issues going into US from Nogales with very little traffic either direction.


Keep in mind the migrant caravan ideally wants to get into California because it is a sanctuary state and they think they will be safer there.  


What a mess!

The border at Tijuana was only closed for 5 hours. The economic impact of closing the border at Nogales is huge. Seems very unlikely.

Heard, for the first time, that some of the north bounders were in Nogales. This was reported by KGUN 9 news (Tucson).

That info is about a week old. There was a small group of about 60 in Nogales as of a week ago. As of today the reports are about preparations but no more actual arrivals.

Sorry Bart, turn on Channel 11, they are saying the same thing, as you are denying it.

I tend to rely on "local" news, as opposed to a more tainted national news.

Had a friend come up today, 5 minutes at the border (went through downtown.)...nothing different. Everything normal.

The border crossing at Otay Mesa was open 10 miles from San Ysidro the entire time. Nothing to see here.

From AZCentral... If, like me, you wonder what the third crossing is.. it is the pedestrian crossing downtown called the Morley crossing.


U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in a news release, said its officers and Department of Defense personnel will perform tactical exercises to prepare for a possible caravan of migrants gathering at the Nogales ports of entry, along Arizona's border with Sonora, Mexico.

The drills could lead to "temporary suspension'' of regular operations at the three Nogales crossings, causing delays of regular cross-border traffic, the agency said.

Headlines Today: Non Profits Hope Hotels can Assist migrants in Tucson. What is wrong with this, well maybe nothing if all the Non Profits have petitioned all the hotels to house ALL the homeless AMERICANS, living on the streets, parks, underground parking spaces, and under interstate overpasses. Let's get our priorities straight!!!

Plenty of places to debate the politics of this situation. Lets keep focused on the impact to travel for US citizens. In a couple of weeks, thousands of US citizens will be traveling to Mexico to visit family for Christmas. This could create a huge mess if the border is closed, even temporarily.

I guess calling something political (things like common sense), is a way to avoid discussing an obvious malfeasance.
