Biden's Befuddling Border BS

The Biden administration, while it is letting in hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from Mexico - without them being vaccinated nor even tested for Covid, and with no mandate for illegals to be vaccinated or even tested, persists in keeping the Canadian land border closed.

The Detroit Free Press: U.S. travel restrictions at Canadian border extended another month, through Oct. 21

This is idiocy of the highest order. 

You can fly in from Canada, and now pursuant to the new policy, international travelers can fly in from elsewhere to the USA, but you can't drive in from Canada, because, well, no valid reasons given.

Canada reopened its border to vaccinated U.S. travelers over a month ago on Aug. 9, but the U.S. has not reciprocated. Canadians who wish to enter the U.S. for non-essential travel such as tourism may do so only by flying in.

This is nonsense on stilts, and likely to backfire as the Canadians move to match this stupid and unreasoning policy.  It also harms all the border states' economies due to the lack of vehicular travel, even of vaccinated visitors.

So unvaccinated and untested illegals are still crossing the land border into the US from Mexico on a regular basis and being allowed to remain, but vaccinated and tested Canadians cannot cross a land border.

The US/Canadian border should have been reopened to vaccinated travelers months ago.  Continuing to have it closed is beyond moronic.
