Oh, irony, how I miss you.

As Americans gear up for the Fourth of July holiday, its neighbor to the south has closed the border to non-essential travel between Arizona and the Mexican state of Sonora.

Sonora Gov. Claudia Pavlovich announced in a release that the closure, taking effect Saturday, is meant to help stem COVID-19’s spread in a Mexican state that’s already experiencing high infection levels, according to to the Tucson Star.

“We are all going to be on alert at this time to prevent them from coming, whether they are Mexicans living in the U.S., Americans or those who want to come to spend the weekend and put a greater burden on us regarding COVID,” Pavlovich said.

Rocky Point, a resort area in Puerto Peñasco, and San Carlos to the south are two popular Independence Day destinations on the Gulf of California for Arizonans.

Arizona enters the holiday weekend leading the nation in troublesome metrics regarding the spread of COVID-19 and seeing thousands of new cases daily.

Well, ain’t that a kick in the teeth.

Here Donald Trump spends the last three and a half years trying to close the border with Mexico, and they turn around and do the very same to us. 

And who can blame them, with America bursting at the seams with new coronavirus cases every single day? 

Well, Donald Trump wanted to isolate America from the rest of the world, and it looks as if he finally got his wish.
