On Sunday, November 25, service at the San Ysidro Port of Entry on the Mexican border was suspended for several hours due to escalating tensions between migrants and U.S. Border Patrol in Tijuana.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection closed northbound, southbound, and pedestrian access to the Port around 11:30AM, reopening pedestrian access at 3:45PM and reopening the rest of north- and southbound vehicle access by 6PM. Extra personnel, including officers from Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol, the Air Force, and the Marine Corps, were also deployed in response.
While the Port is currently open, clients should monitor the situation and plan accordingly, as complications may arise in the future without warning.
