U.S. Border Travel Restrictions Extended, Gov. Burgum Calls It “Preposterous”
BISMARCK N.D. — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum calls it “preposterous”.
The Biden administration is extending non-essential travel restrictions at the northern and southern borders until August 21.
The administration is under fire for continuing to keep them in place more than a year into the pandemic, and after Canada announced it was reopening to vaccinated Americans on August 9.
Burgum says Canada’s COVID-19 vaccination rate “has surpassed our own”.
He says the Biden administration continues to stand in the way of a “long-overdue reopening of the border with our closest ally and trading partner.”
