McAllen, Texas – On Wednesday, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) released a statement in response to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Mayorkas’ announcement to re-open land and ferry crossings for fully vaccinated travelers from Canada and Mexico:

“Yesterday’s announcement that the U.S. will allow fully vaccinated, non-essential travelers to enter through land ports of entry is welcome news for families and businesses in South Texas. I am pleased to see that the Biden Administration heeded our community’s calls to safely resume cross-border travel. This is an important and long-overdue step to getting our economy back on track.”
