Biden Administration Plans to Lift Travel Restrictions at Land Border Points of Entry

The immigration office of The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett Esq., P.C. welcomes the Administration’s announcement that U.S. land border and ferry crossing points of entry would reopen to travelers who are fully vaccinated next month, in addition to all air travelers. We continue to urge the White House to lift the “Title 42” order, a policy of the previous administration that has essentially cut off access to asylum for thousands of vulnerable migrants seeking to enter from Mexico.

American Immigration Lawyer’s Association’s President Allen Orr stated, “AILA has urged the Biden administration to lift these restrictions for months, and it is welcome news that come early November we will see these changes in action. Businesses, families, and communities have suffered from the points of entry being closed. Cross-border travel is a key part of how we will build back from the pandemic’s impact.” This change will allow our country to reopen and ensure the immigration system contributes to economic and social prosperity.

If you have any questions regarding entry to the U.S. from abroad please call our office at (800) 909-8129 for a confidential consultation.
