UPDATE: Truck Operator Strike in Mexico

January 19, 2017


Protest demonstrations in response to recent fuel price increases in Mexico are expected along the Mexican/U.S. border Friday, January 20 through Sunday, January 22. Although Mexican and U.S. Customs are preparing for any potential disruptions, delayed border crossings could impact ports of entry in Otay Mesa, Mexicali, Nogales, and McAllen.

  • The protests expected this weekend at various U.S. ports of entry are a continued public response to the recent deregulation of fuel prices in Mexico
  • Mexican and U.S. Customs departments are extending hours today and tomorrow in anticipation of any problems 
  • Potential border delays and crossing times could affect current supply levels in Nogales, Arizona and South Texas
