A new survey shows that US residents are more concerned about reopening the land border with Mexico than they are about letting Canadians move south.
The survey, conducted by the University of Manitoba and Leger for Metropolis North America, found that only 29 percent of American respondents were intimidated about the Canada-US border.
By comparison, 52.2 percent of the 3,714 US participants surveyed said they were very or somewhat concerned about the easing of land travel restrictions between the US and Mexico.
Non-essential land travel has been banned in the US since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
Those restrictions, which have since been renewed on a monthly basis, are due to expire on October 21.
Canada began allowing fully vaccinated US citizens and permanent residents to cross the land border in August.
