The crisis at the border sparked a huge 12-mile pileup of trucks carrying $1.5billion worth of goods, after president Joe Biden ordered a wall be built and NYC mayor Eric Adams visited Mexico in an effort to stop the flood of asylum seekers.
Thousands of trucks attempting to enter the United States from Mexico queued for miles on Wednesday amid delays related to record migration that has seen more than two million people apprehended at the US-Mexico border this year.
They were left stranded on the Mexican side of the border after US authorities shut down crossings and imposed extra security checks amid an increase in migration.
It comes as the Biden administration said it will build 20 miles of border wall to try and combat the latest surge in migrant crossings and NYC mayor Adams is in Mexico to learn more about the paths migrants take to the US and to tell asylum seekers that NYC is out of space.
In Ciudad Juarez on Wednesday, trucks waited to cross a bridge into Santa Teresa, New Mexico, after cargo processing was temporarily suspended at a bridge connecting the city to El Paso, Texas, to allow customs officers to assist in processing migrants arriving outside official crossings.
On Wednesday, Mexican auto transport group CANACAR in a statement expressed ‘deep concern’ over Texas’ inspections of trucks crossing the border from Mexico, which it said had kept more than $1.5 billion in goods from entering the US.
‘This measure has generated a crisis that has resulted in closures, detours, longer crossing times and significant reductions in the export volumes of different products from Mexico to the United States,’ CANACAR said.
CANACAR’s statement comes a day after the government of border state Chihuahua said that the costs of a sharp downturn in US-bound cargo trucks had totaled nearly $1 billion over about two weeks.
In addition to the slowdown of trucks and trailers, thousands of railroad cars were also stalled in recent days after border officials temporarily halted processing at the international railway crossing bridge in Eagle Pass, Texas.
Some U.S.-bound cargo trains were also disrupted when a major Mexican freight rail operator temporarily suspended operations after migrants died or were hurt jumping on the trains.

Biden Regime Decides to Build Border Wall Segment Two Months After They Sold All of the Trump Border Parts Worth $300 Million for $2 Million
On his first day in office after his inaugural behind fences and 20,000 military troops, Biden hobbled to the Oval Officer where he signed several executive orders including the end of construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and the end of construction of the Trump border wall.
It was Joe Biden’s first act as president. Biden opened the US border to illegal aliens.
Joe Biden killed off an estimated 52,100 American jobs in the process.
During President Trump’s time in office you could track the progress of his border wall. Trump was able to build hundreds of miles of border wall despite pushback from then Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority leader Mitch McConnell, and every Democrat in office. Trump also had to regularly fend off the liberal legacy media who attacked his plan to secure the US southern border.
Over 5 million illegals crossed into the US in Joe Biden’s first two years in office.
Over 7 million illegals have crossed over since Joe Biden’s inauguration.
In August Maria Bartiromo announced that the Biden regime sold the Trump border wall parts worth $300 million for $2 million.
Now, just two months later Joe Biden is talking about building more border wall in Texas. It took the regime two-and-a-half years of open borders and 7 million illegal aliens flooding into the country to admit that President Trump was right.
It’s just too bad Joe Biden sold all the parts for scrap just two months ago!
