San Ysidro Border Entry Open After Being Shut Down Over Gas-Price Protests

SAN YSIDRO (CBSLA.com) — The Mexican Border at the San Ysidro’s port of entry was shut down Saturday night for several hours because of protesters.

A protest against Mexico’s 20 percent gasoline price hike turned violent Saturday after a lone protester drove his truck into a line of police guarding a fuel distribution terminal in Baja California.

As of 8:15 p.m. the southbound lanes into Mexico from United States were closed.

All lanes at the border into Mexico and into the U.S. are now open.
