Just days after residents along a tiny U.S.-Canada border station successfully lobbied the federal government to abandon its plan to expand the crossing by seizing a dairy farmer’s land, some people are complaining they had no idea the port would close altogether.
The Department of Homeland Security announced last week that it would close the little-used Morses Line border crossing to avoid an expansion that would take a prime hay field from a Vermont farmer. But residents on both sides of the border say they rely on being able to cross easily there between the two countries.
