Inslee Statement on Federal Decision to Maintain U.S.-Canada Border Closure

Gov. Inslee

Gov. Jay Inslee today issued the following statement regarding the federal government's recent announcement of continued U.S.-Canada border closure.

"I am extremely disappointed by the federal government’s announcement today that the U.S. border with Canada will remain closed through at least August 21. This continued closure will result in continued hardship for Washingtonians living in border communities, including in Point Roberts".

"As I have expressed repeatedly in communications with the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security, the time has come to at least partially reopen the U.S.-Canada border, and I will continue to advocate for relief for border communities in Washington state".
