posted by Press Release in Chris Jacobs, NY-27, news, U.S. - Canada border.

Press release:

Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) is releasing the following statement ahead of the virtual summit between President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“Last week, Western New Yorkers were once again left with more uncertainty as the Department of Homeland Security announced an additional monthlong extension of the non-essential travel ban across the northern border. In one of his early executive orders, President Biden signaled that reopening the U.S. – Canada border in a safe and cooperative manner was a priority.

"As a member of the Northern Border Caucus and a representative of a district with a vast amount of New York’s northern border, I urge the administration to uphold that commitment and work with Prime Minister Trudeau on a plan to reopen the border. Western New York families, small businesses, and property owners are relying upon it."
