Has anyone actually been refused crossing the border in either direction at Lukeville? Or really even questioned about essential travel? Not to the best of my knowledge.

I've had 12 trips since Aug 2020, not one agent on either side of the border has said a word about not traveling.

We've gone up and back over the past year 30x. US asks us why we're going down, and we say to work on our house. Never had a problem.

I came back in July 2020 and was told that it was essential travel only. I told them that Mexico considers tourism essential. The agent just looked at me, said okay and waved me through.

I went north through Lukeville the day Trump visited the border wall in Yuma and had a CBP agent give me enormous crap about traveling before he inevitably let me in. He was really ugly. A couple minor ones around the same time. Recently very nice. We have a house guest in Arizona who crossed up through Nogales yesterday morning who said she had a long pleasant conversation at the checkpoint.
