Border Restrictions Extended Through End of August

Homeland Security officials say they’re extending the closure of the US-Mexico border for another month — a decision that poses challenges for El Paso schools that Mexican students attend. The restrictions have been renewed monthly since March of last year. This latest restriction will last until August 21st. Mexican students are allowed to cross, but sometimes their parents are not allowed to accompany them. El Paso health officials say they’ll continue to invite these students to receive a vaccination.
