November 30, 2018 Press Release

Following calls from the office of Congressman Collin C. Peterson (D-Minn.) and Roseau Mayor Jeff Pelowski, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that northbound gates will remain open at Roseau and Pinecreek during Canada Border Security Agency service hours.

“I’m glad this situation was worked out, but we still have the underlying issue of reducing U.S. service hours in Lancaster and Roseau. I will continue efforts to keep these ports open longer so U.S. and Canadian travelers won’t have to rush and beat the clock each and every night,” Peterson said.

January 31, 2017 Press Release

Congressman Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn., released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s Executive Order on Immigration: 

“In the past I have supported increased vetting of those wishing to enter our country. That said, I have reservations with how the Administration has gone about this process with a broad stroke of the pen, instead of working with Congress to ensure a dialogue and getting to a sensible solution that protects Americans at home and our troops abroad while maintaining our core values and respect for Constitutional rights.”
