The Wall From the Other Side

For John, BLUFAfter all the whinging about the wall separating us from Mexico, now we have Mexico wanting to keep those Gringos out.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From The Daily Mail, by Reporter Jennifer Smith, 13 March 2020.

Here is the lede plus one:

For once, the conversation over closing the US-Mexico border is being driven by Mexican health officials who say they are considering shutting out Americans to keep coronavirus out of their country.

There are currently more than 2,000 cases of the virus in the US and it is spreading rapidly. Forty-three people have died from it.

By contrast in Mexico, there have only been 16 confirmed cases and no deaths.

At a press conference on Friday, health minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell said: 'Mexico wouldn't bring the virus to the United States, rather the United States would bring it here.

It is good to see that in this first diverse world that some nations see the value of borers.  Poet Robert Frost, in his book North of Boston (Derry, New Hampshire, actually) tells us "Good fences make good neighbors," twice ("Mending Walls").

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

Do we believe that Mexico has a better handle on the number of cases, or just that it is a less desirable location for those fleeing the hot zones?

At the risk of being labeled, I think it is because people don't normally flee to Mexico, unless the law enforcement folks are hot on their trail. Maybe vacation, but in a medical emergency, a pandemic, folks will go to where there is better medical support, and Senator Sanders notwithstanding, that is the US, not Mexico.
