Collins wants Biden administration to change Canadian border restrictions
CARIBOU, Maine (AP) - Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine wants the Biden administration to reconsider U.S.-Canada border restrictions that were imposed a year ago because of the pandemic.
Her letter came less than a week after the Department of Homeland Security announced that the U.S., Mexico and Canada had jointly agreed to maintain land border restrictions until March 21.
Collins wrote in a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that an “equitable solution” is needed for border communities that recognize lower risk levels.
Elsewhere in New England, a state lawmaker in Massachusetts said the state’s coronavirus vaccination suffers from structural racism.
