COCHISE COUNTY — Mayors in at least two Cochise County cities that directly border or are close to Mexico are hoping to reignite a group that would unite the local politicians with their Sonoran counterparts in order to jump-start commerce that was dealt a blow by pandemic-induced travel restrictions.

In March 2020, as COVID-19 surfaced and began to wreak havoc, U.S. officials announced there would be a limit on “inbound land border crossings” from Canada and Mexico. It meant that anyone crossing into the U.S. from either of those two bordering countries could only do so for “essential travel.”
