U.S. Border Closure Extended Amid Pandemic

Nonessential border crossings to be blocked until September.

The president’s administration announced earlier this week that travel restrictions across the border from Mexico and Canada would remain in place for another month as cases of COVID-19 continue to rise across the nation. According to a State Department spokesperson, “Canada and Mexico remain strong partners as we work together to combat COVID-19.”

The borders between the neighboring nations have been closed since March. The closures have been extended four times already since then. All travel restrictions do not affect trade or essential travel. Canada and Mexico have also restricted travelers from the United States from entering their countries.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the State Department would work with the nation’s allies to bring an end to the pandemic. 
  • For God to use President Trump’s Administration to bring an end to the pandemic.
  • For the Lord to bring healing to those sick with COVID-19.
