McMorris Rodgers Statement on Danville Port of Entry Reduced Hours

WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 9, 2018) – Today, Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement regarding the announcement by Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) of reduced hours at the Danville Port of Entry (POE) beginning in October.  

“This border crossing is a vital corridor for people that live in Ferry County to access Grand Forks, British Columbia,” said McMorris Rodgers. “Many in the area cross the border to work, go to church, shop, or access medical services or recreational opportunities on a regular basis. Not only does this Port of Entry provide a way for the people of Grand Forks and Ferry County to come together, it provides necessary economic support for both communities. I’m very concerned about the proposed reduction in hours at the Danville POE because of the negative effect it will have on these communities.”

NOTE: Recently, Cathy wrote a letter to CPB requesting more information as to the reasoning for the closure and voicing her concerns and the concerns of many in the Ferry Country community. In case you missed it, you can view that letter by CLICKING HERE.

Additionally, Cathy’s staff was present at a local community forum to hear concerns from those in the community about the reduced hours. She wants to continue hearing from people in the community so she can take their concerns directly to the administration. Concerned community members can find all of Cathy’s contact information here.
