Burgum: Don’t reduce hours at 3 ports of entry along ND-Canada border

State News

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gov. Doug Burgum is urging U.S. Customs and Border Protection not to cut hours of operation at three entry ports on the North Dakota-Canadian border.

Border Protection has proposed moving back the closing time at the Maida and Carbury crossings from 10 p.m. to 7 p.m. and the Antler crossing from 10 p.m. to 5 p.m.

In a letter to the CBP, Burgum noted all three ports experienced an increase in automobile and truck crossings in fiscal year 2018. Burgum says he’s concerned reducing the hours of operation will have a negative impact on tourism, movement of goods and local economies.

The agency says it wants to use its resources at the busiest locations and that there are low numbers of crossings during the times it plans to cut.
