Losses of $ 600 million, the closure of 197 companies and the closure of borders in San Ysidro – El Sol de Tijuana

Tijuana: About 13 months after the partial closure of the border to non-essential crossings, San Ysidro accumulated losses of $ 600 million and the closure of 197 companies in the region.

This was stated by Executive Director of the San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce, Jason Wells, who determined that more than two thousand families had lost their sources of income.

We will never take it back, even if restrictions are lifted today. We will not get back what we lost. “It will be simply for the sake of survival and stability of ourselves,” said the business representative.

Jason Wells said it turned out that on May 21, the borders from south to north were fully opened for those crossing with a tourist visa, although not trusted, as this is rumored to be happening since October.

He noted that politicians on the American side such as the Mayor of San Diego and a member of Congress from Texas called on the US government to lift the restrictions imposed by the Trump administration.
