The President Of Mexico Believes That The Us Can'T Completely Close The Border With The Country

Some categories of Mexican workers will continue to work in the US, despite President Donald Trump's decision to restrict entry to the country. This was stated on Thursday at a press conference by the head of Latin American state Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

"It should be taken into account that trade and economic activity are not paralyzed and those restrictions will not affect migrant agricultural workers. We [the US and Mexico] need each other. It would be impossible to completely close the border, given the current level of integration, it must be kept open," Lopez Obrador said.

On Wednesday, Trump signed an Executive order banning immigration to the country for 60 days due to the pandemic. The restrictions apply to people who are outside the United States at the time of signing the decree and do not have an immigrant visa or other travel documents. At a briefing on April 21, the head of the White House said that the decree does not affect farmworkers.
