BELLINGHAM, Wash. – First District Representative Suzan DelBene says the long waits at the U.S./Canadian border are hurting Whatcom County residents.

She has called on Homeland Security and the U.S. Border Patrol to reduce wait times and increase border crossing capacity.

She says extending U.S. Nexus lane hours would be a good start.

 

Point Roberts residents have started a petition calling for extended hours.

Right now the U.S. lane is open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm, whereas the Canadian lane is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm.
