Default Coronavirus: Mexico may consider border-crossing limits

So if Mexico shuts down the border between the US and Mexico, does that make the Mexican President a racist? This will drive the left nuts trying to figure out how to blame this on Trump.

Coronavirus: Mexico may consider border-crossing limits
Mexican health officials say the virus would spread from the US to Mexico, as confirmed cases remain low in the country.

Mexican Deputy Health Secretary Hugo Lopez-Gatell has said authorities would consider mechanisms to control the flow of people entering Mexico from the United States in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

"The possible flow of coronavirus would come from the north to the south. If it were technically necessary, we would consider mechanisms of restriction or stronger surveillance," Lopez-Gatell said at a news conference on Thursday.

Mexico has so far confirmed 15 cases of coronavirus with no deaths, a fraction of the more than 1,000 cases in the US, where more than 40 confirmed deaths have resulted from the virus. That has led some in Mexico to see contagion from the US as a threat.

The spread of the virus turned the usual US-Mexico border issue on its head. The administration of US President Donald Trump has pushed for limiting crossings along the border since his 2016 campaign. Earlier this month, he floated the idea of closing the US's land borders due to the coronavirus, but reversed course just days later.

Health officials in the US have warned that a lack of concerted efforts to stop community spread of the coronavirus inside the country could pose significant health risks.

California has seen at least 50 cases and four deaths since the outbreak of the virus. No cases are confirmed in bordering Baja California, a Mexican state.

True, some of the left's heads are probably spinning on this one.
But here's another question,
Will it finally make conservatives happy if Mexico closes it's boarder?

I would be thrilled if illegal border crossings were stopped regardless of which country does it.

Conservatives were unhappy with Mexico's indifference to illegal aliens crossing the border into the US. I don't know of any serious Conservative that the border with Mexico be totally closed.

The Trump administration has made tremendous progress with getting the Mexican government to cooperate with instituting measures to control the border and their interior policies as a transit path for Central American migrants.

So we will have two countries protecting their shared border? And controlling who comes into their country? Well that's just plain crazy isn't it?
