With the expected end of the Centers for Disease Control’s temporary Title 42 public order, at 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 11, land ports of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border may experience delays and disruptions.

- Avoid crowds and demonstrations.
- Make sure your vehicle is in good working condition and has adequate fuel for long traffic delays.
