Mexican authorities closed car travel into Mexico at the DeConcini Port of Entry on Sunday after the gasoline protes took a violent turn in Nogales, Sonora, according to the Nogales International. Traffic was detoured to the Mariposa Port of Entry.
Traffic coming from Mexico into the U.S. is still in full operation at all ports of entry in Nogales, Arizona.
The Nogales International reports that Mexican police “dislodged protesters from the railroad tracks south of the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry.” That led to an attack on two policemen. Two officers “suffered facial lacerations during an afternoon confrontation in which demonstrators hurled rocks at officers, and law enforcement responded with rubber bullets.”
