The Daily Mail reports this week that Mexico is considering closing its northern border to keep Americans from brining the coronavirus into the country. Mexico has only 16 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and no deaths.
We haven’t checked on the Mexican media, so we’re not sure if they’re denouncing Mexico’s health minister as xenophobic.

Well Mexico that is a great idea!! Close your borders. When Mexico does this maybe it will lessen the illegal drugs and illegal people from coming into the US plus anything else unwanted. Thanks Mexico for doing this !!!!!

As far as we know, fears of the coronavirus haven’t slowed illegal immigration into the U.S., but we could look into it.

The more borders the better!

Please do. It will cut down on the measles outbreaks and typhus epidemic on our southern border coming north

I’m assuming closing it in both directions? You know, to stop the drugs that flow in.

They should build a wall

They should build a wall to keep us Americans from entering illegally.

Maybe Mexico really will pay for a wall.

Hey, I have a great idea, why not help pay the U.S. to finish building the wall along the Mexico/U.S. border. The wall will help keep out Americans, coming into Mexico illegally.

Wow super racist https://t.co/xqsmDozWTj

Wait, I thought a country determining who can and can't come in is racist? It's only racist if the USA does it. Every other nation is allowed to enforce their immigration laws.

Well there it is. Cue the outrage machine. Is it <<RACIST>> when Mexicans close their borders? 🧐

This note is not correct. I listened to the complete press conference myself. Mexican authorities never said, neither remotely implied, that the 🇺🇸🇲🇽 border would be closed.
The editor or @DailyMail must change this headline.
