America’s Borders to Remain Closed

Non-essential travel restricted until November 21.

The Department of Homeland Security said Monday the United States’ land borders between Canada and Mexico will remain closed to all non-essential travel until November 21.

“To continue to limit the spread of COVID, the U.S., Mexico, and Canada will extend the restrictions on non-essential travel through November 21. We are working closely with Mexico and Canada to identify safe criteria to ease the restrictions in the future and support our border communities,” said Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.

Mexico’s foreign minister confirmed that the safety measures will remain in place and unchanged until November 21.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, “We’d love to have the border open…but we can’t do that unless we’re comfortable that Canadians are being kept safe.” He added, “Right now, the situation in the United States continues to be of concern.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For people in the U.S. border towns where the restrictions have been particularly painful economically.
  • For an easing in the number of COVID cases that would allow border crossings in time for multi-national families to come together for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  • For President Trump as he works to address
