Nogales mayor eager to see port travel restrictions lifted

Restrictions have been in place for over a year.

Communities along the Arizona-Mexico border have seen decreased travel through ports of entry for over a year as travel restrictions between the North American nations remain in place. That has translated into millions of dollars in lost revenue. Prior to the pandemic, Mexican shoppers spent an estimated billion dollars in Arizona each year. Lorraine Rivera traveled to the city of Nogales where she spoke to Mayor Arturo Garino about how his city is coping ongoing port restrictions.
