Border wall workers in New Mexico spark coronavirus anxiety

Some residents of a southern New Mexico village, immigrant advocates and others are raising concerns about an influx of workers in the community as part of the effort to build the US-Mexico border wall during the coronavirus outbreak.

They've asked the state’s top elected officials to step in after the federal contractor working on the project began erecting portable housing.

The request reflects growing worries on both the northern and southern U.S. borders over construction workers bringing the virus to areas with sparse health care services.

Opponents of the work effort argued in a letter that public health orders issued by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham are aimed at limiting groups of people and contact to keep the coronavirus pandemic from worsening.
