Congressman Chris Jacobs, R-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 month-long extension of the nonessential 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.”
