(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.”
Kathleen “Kathy” Mary Cornelius, of Alabama Center, NY, died as she lived Wednesday, September 9, 2020: when she was good and ready, in the presence of her husband and children. Her calling as a devoted caregiver with strong opinions ran as a theme throughout her life, from family to work, and from childhood to adulthood.
