Uncertainty over closures at the U.S.-Mexico Border south of San Diego has taken its toll on tourism to the southern side according to one business owner as Customs and Border Protection reinforces security procedures due to a group of migrants in Tijuana.
Last Sunday, CBP shut down the border for five hours after hundreds of Central American migrants awaiting asylum proceedings attempted to rush the border during a protest on Mexico’s side. The closure resulted in more than $5.3 million in losses for businesses near the border.
More than a week later, businesses that rely on tourism to Baja California are still feeling the effects of the border shut down.
West Barba’s livelihood is dependent on the border. He runs Baja Border Tours, which takes tourists from San Diego on sight-seeing trips to Baja California, including Tijuana, Rosarito and Puerto Nuevo.
