South Texas officials are happy that tourism and other nonessential travel with Mexico will resume after a long pause due to the pandemic.  Biden administration officials announced this week that foreign nationals will be allowed to cross into the U.S. from Canada and Mexico on November 1st, as long as they show proof they are fully vaccinated.  Democratic Congressman Vicente Gonzalez of McAllen said in a statement yesterday that the announcement was welcome news for families and businesses in the region.  Hidalgo County Judge Richard Cortez also welcomed the announcement, saying the return of visitors from Mexico will help the area’s ongoing economic recovery from the pandemic.
