DHS updated its fact sheet on the limits on its joint initiatives with Canada and Mexico limiting all non-essential travel across the U.S.-Canada and U.S.-Mexico land borders. DHS notes that individuals subject to the order “will not be held in congregate areas for processing by CBP and instead will immediately be turned away from ports of entry.” Those encountered between ports of entry after crossing the border “similarly will not be held in congregate areas for processing and instead, to the maximum extend feasible, will immediately be returned to their country of last transit.” These policies came into effect on March 21, 2020, at 12:00 am (ET).
