Jon Barela, CEO of The Borderplex Alliance, issued the following statement today regarding the announcement of the easing of Covid-19 travel restrictions on land ports of entry from Mexico and Canada:

“Our region’s business community applauds this overdue first step in the right direction. The U.S.-Mexico border is a critical economic driver for the United States, with more than $671.1 billion in trade between the United States and Mexico every year. Moreover, Mexican nationals comprise 15% to 30% of retail customers in the Borderplex region. This decision will help boost our regional and national economies and help return our inextricably linked community to some degree of normalcy.”
