US Officials Are Calling On Biden To Fully Reopen The Canada-US Border By July

They're also calling for partial reopening in May. 🇨🇦🇺🇸

A letter signed by multiple members of Congress has been sent to President Joe Biden, urging him to consider fully reopening the Canada-U.S. border by July 2021.

The document, obtained by CTV News, calls on the American leader to work alongside the Canadian Prime Minister to secure “a partial re-opening of the Northern Border by Memorial Day [...] with a full re-opening by July 4."

Representative Brian Higgins of New York, who wrote the letter and has called for similar action in the past, suggested that current travel restrictions "tears at the fabric of our community and is a critical problem for individuals, families, and businesses."

It comes a week after Biden confirmed that every American who wants a COVID-19 vaccine should be able to get one by May, while Trudeau is promising the majority of Canadians could be vaccinated by September.

The border between the two countries has been closed to non-essential travel for almost a year, with current restrictions set to expire on March 21, 2021.
