Exclusive: Biden staff looks into ordering Covid tests for travelers arriving from Mexico
It is being considered by the incoming Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas. Flight suspensions ruled out. Doubts about the distribution of vaccines.

Within the Mexican Armed Forces, the information is already circulating that the future U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, is analyzing imposing a special measure as of January for travelers arriving from Mexico to the U.S.: to demand a negative test of Covid-19.

While testing would not be required only for Mexico but also for other countries where the pandemic continues to strike hard, it would be a challenging beginning to the bilateral relationship with the incoming Biden administration. Currently, no flights have been suspended and no testing is required. Mayorkas has reportedly ruled out suspending air interconnection.

The message of this idea is evident: Mayorkas has no doubt that Mexico will have the vaccines against the pandemic but there is concern about how the distribution scheme will work.

It is worth remembering the problems that Andrés Manuel López Obrador's administration has in carrying out vaccination campaigns against existing diseases such as influenza. That disorganization is what Biden's staff is observing.

LPO revealed that major Mexican businessmen are asking the government to allow them to vaccinate their employees and immediate family members. Another sign of the lack of trust.

Mayorkas, of Cuban origin, has reached a central position in the cabinet that has all the security agencies of the neighboring country under his command.
