How quickly things change. Americans trying to enter Mexico as the coronavirus strikes the United States were barred from doing so by protesters who don’t want their germs.

“Less than a dozen people wearing face masks and carrying signs used two of their vehicles for a blockade of the two southbound lanes at the DeConcini crossing, several hundred feet into the Mexican side of the border, video taken by Mexican media showed,” the Republican reported.

“The U.S. has a significantly higher number of confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 than Mexico, a situation that is also true along the states on both sides of the border,” the report revealed.
