Mexicans block Arizona border, demand Covid-19 screenings on travelers from US

Mexican protesters have blocked a US border crossing demanding the Mexican government require health screening for travelers entering from the US to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Residents in Sonora, south of Arizona, wearing masks and carrying signs used a pair of vehicles to blockade two southbound lanes on Wednesday. Mexico has less than 500 Covid-19 cases and the US over 65,000.

Good. All nations should protect their borders. Everyone has the right to request entry, no one has a right to actual entry.

Totally fine with Mexican citizens protesting along their border to keep riff-raff and undesirables out for whatever reason; it's their nation.

Maybe they should build a wall or some kind of barrier.

The numbers dont matter much anymore. Not enough tests to go around. But as for Mexico, I fully support this move. We dont want their shit as much as they dont want ours. Fair is fair.

Fine with me. Close the border, and require everyone that comes and goes has a visa or a valid permit to do so. Mexicans going to the U.S. get a visa, same thing with Americans going to Mexico. If they are expecting Americans to be outraged about it like they are, then they are gravely mistaken.

This is wise on Mexico's part. Having lived in beautiful MX for many yrs, I think they would have difficulty handling an epidemic. While they have many excellent healthcare facilities and Doctors, getting the necessary equipment could be a problem. For those who cross the border on foot to have dental work done, it's not good news, but Mexico needs to do whatever it it takes to protect its citizens.
