The Secretary of Treasury in Mexico (SAT) has implemented a contingency plan in the event protesters block ports of entry between Mexico and the United States.

Information has circulated that various groups may block the ports tomorrow to protest President-elect Donald Trump’s swearing-in. 

Mexican border agents will work overtime tomorrow, and will work extended hours on Saturday and Sunday in case cargo crossings get affected. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol have not issued any notices about overtime activities.
