U.S. expected to announce restrictions on travel across Mexico border - sources

WASHINGTON, March 19 (Reuters) - The United States is expected to announce on Friday restrictions on travel across the United States-Mexico border, limiting crossings to essential travel, two officials briefed on the matter said.
