The U.S. and Mexico are working together on a plan that would allow trade to still exist between each other while limiting travel between the borders. 

Marcelo Ebrard, the Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary said Thursday to The Associated Press that he pitched changes to Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State. 

According to Ebrard, the changes “won’t paralyze economic activity and keep the border open to commerce and work.”

Pompeo tweeted Thursday confirming that he and Ebrard “have been working closely on travel restrictions that balance protecting our citizens from further transmission of #COVID19.”

He goes on to say, “Together, we can reduce public health risks and prioritize essential cross-border commerce and trade.”

Although the borders have been closed for nonessential travel, Trump says that “trade will not be affected.”

According to The Hill, 75% of Mexican exports go to the U.S., making Mexico the largest trading partner to the U.S.

There is now a level four travel advisory issued by the U.S. urging Americans to not travel internationally.
