There were versions going all over social media, about a group f Iranians that could be arriving soon to Mexicali, aiming to cross the border to the USA, that is the reason City Hall activated the Border Shield operation, in order to coordinate with the USA authorities and prevent any contingence regarding that matter, said Mayor Marina del Pilar Avila Olmeda.

She also said that there is no reason to panic, or even think there could be terrorist attacks in Mexicali, but explained that the Border Shield seeks to protect the border crossings in Mexicali, Algodones and San Luis Sonora, but mentioned that there is no reason to suppose that there could be any attacks from foreigners due to a conflict happening in such a distant part of the world such as the middle east.
