Stefanik introduces bill to pressure Biden to end COVID restrictions for Canadians visiting North Country
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who represents St. Lawrence County in the 21st Congressional District, joined her colleagues in introducing the Northern Border Reopening Act recently, to force the Biden Administration to end all COVID-19 mandates for Canadians traveling to the United States.
“Burdening Canadians with additional restrictions to cross the Northern Border harms our Upstate New York and North Country communities, families, and small businesses. I have been calling on both Canada and the United States to resume pre-pandemic travel at the Northern Border, and this is a chance for the United States to set an example for returning to normalcy. I am proud to join this effort to take a step forward in restoring our Northern Border travel,” Stefanik said.The Northern Border Reopening Act would drop all COVID-19 mandates on Canadian nationals entering the United States to return the Northern Border to normal on the American side.
In addition to Stefanik, the Northern Border Reopening Act was originally cosponsored by Representatives Lee Zeldin (NY-01), Andrew Garbarino (NY-02), Pete Stauber (MN-08), Jack Bergman (MI-01), and Byron Donalds (FL-19).
