Here is a little timeline for the Lukeville, AZ US-Mexico border crossing.  Seems it got a bit busy with Cartel Katie Hobbs working with the cartels to flood it with new prospective Democratic voters to be dispersed here.

The above linked article talks about this very border crossing and an actual gun-battle that happened there while it was closed.  Then you'll see below the article about how it gets re-opened a few days after the shootout.

"PHOENIX — So many migrants are crossing from Mexico into the United States around remote Lukeville, Arizona, that U.S. officials say they will close the port of entry there so that the operations officials who watch over vehicle and pedestrian traffic going both ways can help Border Patrol agents arrest and process the new arrivals."

(AP) — Gerston Miranda and his wife were among thousands of migrants recently arriving at this remote area on Arizona’s southern border with Mexico, squeezing into the United States through a gap in the wall and walking overnight about 14 miles (23 kilometers) with two school-aged daughters to surrender to Border Patrol agents."
