Our southern border Ports of Entry (P.O.E.), which are on US Federal Land, are not safe for the elderly and disabled. Excessive wait times in high temperatures make crossing at Ports of Entry dangerous for US Citizens, Permanent Residents and Visa Holders. The elderly and disabled are forced to wait hours, sometimes standing, in the heat with no shade, which puts their lives at risk while trying to return to their legal country of residence. Sign the petition and demand Homeland Security create designated crossing lanes for the elderly and disabled that are ADA compliant in both Pedestrian and Vehicular P.O.E. Lanes across our southern border.
