I hope this note finds you well.
While we could not be more fortunate than to live in North Dakota under great conservative leadership, the same cannot be said for the backwards, haphazard decision-making coming from Washington, D.C. Whether it’s the catastrophic and tragic situation in Afghanistan or the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline on Day 1, Joe Biden is proving to be worse than we could have ever imagined.
One issue that is hitting particularly close to home and one that I would like to call to your attention to is the Governor’s push to have the President reopen the Canadian border for nonessential travel.
Under Joe Biden’s watch, almost anyone can cross into our southern border, and yet, travelers with valid paperwork and documentation are prevented from coming in at the northern border. It is simply ludicrous that at a time when the country is trying to recover its economy that Americans can cross to help the Canadian economy – but not the other way around.
The Governor has created a petition here that I would appreciate if you could circulate to your friends and family, as it is vitally important that we raise awareness of this issue. The Canadian border produces over $700 billion in economic activity every year for the border states, so we cannot allow the Biden Administration’s continued intransigence to slow us down.
