BUFFALO, N.Y. — U.S. Rep. Brian Higgins continues to be one of the most outspoken lawmakers pushing for a safe reopening of our border with Canada.
While some quarantine restrictions have been lifted for Canadians, the average American still is unable to freely cross the U.S.-Canada border.
Higgins and 75 other members of Congress signed a letter to President Joe Biden pushing for COVID pandemic-related travel restrictions to be lifted.
That letter says in part: "Both governments should follow the science and drop all travel restrictions for travelers between the United States and Canada who are fully vaccinated travelers or provide proof of a negative PCR test."
As of right now, border restrictions are scheduled to expire on July 21, but they've been extended every month since last spring.
