NUEVO LEON, MX (KGNS) - As a protest against President-Elect Donald Trump, the governor of Nuevo Leon is urging a shopping ban in McAllen and South Padre Island.
This ban is in response to Trump's deal with the Carrier air conditioning company to stop manufacturing in Nuevo Leon.
The City of McAllen is currently organizing a trip to Monterrey to try to find a resolution.
According to city officials, this is an unfair ban for the City of McAllen - since the city, along with the majority of border towns, voted against Trump.
As far as how this will affect the City of Laredo, it is really a wait-and-see game. But city officials do not expect our relations with Nuevo Leon to change.
