Based on current conditions and the time of day, I suspect there were not  many Americanos arriving at the tail-end of a 6 hour wait at 9:15 last night...but I've been wrong before. The line continued at 3+ hours through the nigh and is back to 6 hours now, so maybe there WERE that many traveling south?

My response was referring to Mexicans living and working in the USA who had a 3 day Holiday weekend to travel to Mexico to see family, returning on Monday night to the USA to continue making those dollars to send south.


No gringos in that bunch...

But, but, but..........Mexico is closed to non-essential traffic, right? 


Obviously, not.

Wonder if the US border agents asks anybody coming back to the USA if they were in essential travel business and what their response would be if the traveler discloses "No, I wasn't".

Most of the rentals in the Country Club had 4 to 8 cars parked out front, Friday through yesterday.  Back yards and swimming pools packed with kids to adults.  No social distancing practiced here.  Most of the license plates were Arizona.

Completely predictable, considering the CBP site says there is ONE LANE OPEN at Mariposa.


I cant get the El Imparcial border camera site to load.

The (one open lane) delays at the border in Nogales may be Ice's messaging to make sure tourist travel to go shopping and boating becomes essential travel by making head lines with long waits. 

Cases are really on the rise in Tj and Mexicali, with around 4500 active cases combined in these 2 cities alone and I think AZ is gonna get hit bad too in Phx and Tucson soon.

Yesterday, Mexicali. a town of around a million in population initiated a 6 mp curfew in some the of the worst hit neighborhoods, and has also closed down all traffic on some streets.

So Nogales may be quitely going on the defensive, as Dual citizens also start seeking help in hospitals north of the border too.

Yuma , Arizona hospitals are being over run.
The number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19 has tripled in Yuma


San Luis Rio Colorado is just south of Yuma, Arizona and has the most cases of infections and deaths in Sonora!
 5 new confirmed cases in San Luis Rio Colorado, 17 deaths in Sonora - KYMA


this is a global pandemic!!!! the virus knows no boundaries or time limits not being observed by isolation and mitigation!


 good luck closing "Pandora box"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW, the "one lane" is not always the truth, if you look at the cameras and watch, you will see 2-4 lanes. Mariposa spiked at 3 hrs for a short time, but hovered around 90 minutes from 2PM-7PM

As in right now, both crossings say "one lane open" and there are two plus Sentri downtown and it appears there are three open at Mariposa. Lines are down to an hour at DeConcini, and it say 90 minutes at Mariposa, but the line is not even back to the border gate.

If people stayed at home (as requested), it would not be spreading. Just saying. I know it isn't easy, and not what we want, but sometimes you have to do, what you have to do, and I like staying alive.
