Jacobs Statement on Extension of US-Canadian Border Travel Restrictions

For Immediate Release

September 17th,  2020

(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) is releasing the following statement after reports surfaced Wednesday afternoon that the US-Canadian Border will remain closed to non-essential travel through October 21st, 2020.

“The economic impact on Western New York from the extended closure of the northern border has been devastating,” Jacobs said. “This shouldn’t be a question of if we can open the border, but how to end these 30-day extensions and open safely to ensure family members can be reunited and local economies can be stimulated. I will work with the White House and Homeland Security to find a solution to implement a phased re-opening that satisfies the needs of the United States and Canadian Governments – Western New York’s economy cannot afford to wait any longer.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

[NEWSTEAD, New York] – I believe our Veterans deserve the utmost respect and gratitude for their service to our country. Therefore, once elected, I will propose a partnership between the town and our local businesses to create exclusive parking spots for the Veterans of this community. 

These premiere parking spots would be a way of saying “Thank You for Your Service” on a daily basis and in a visible manner. It would be an active show of appreciation for those who served our communities.
