After a brief open period during Christmas season, PedWest was closed again

The PedWest border crossing, known for being a practical option for those who work nearby, will resume operations with specific guidelines in order to address security concerns and the possibility of illegal crossings.

Despite its usefulness such as its fast access to San Ysidro, PedWest has experienced recurring closures, being perceived by some migrants as a way to enter illegally. After a brief open period during Christmas season, it was closed again due to these concerns.
