Maine travel restrictions go into effect after ‘lots of people’ arrive on the West Coast
The U.S. is on a lockdown, with travel restrictions in effect in parts of New England.
Authorities have said the restrictions will keep out tourists from the Boston Marathon and other major events, including the White House and other national events.
But there are still thousands of people coming in from other parts of the country who want to travel to Maine, the biggest state on the East Coast, but whose citizens won’t be allowed to do so until Friday.
Paul LePage says the lockdown is “a little bit different” than in other states.
The lockdown is happening across the country, he told a local television station.
There’s a lot of people that are coming in, and we’re seeing people, and the traffic, and a lot is going on that has no basis in fact, he said.
The governor said it’s a “great idea” that people who need to travel in and out of the state should not be prevented from doing so.
Michele Moulton, a spokeswoman for the governor, said the lockdown “was put in place due to the recent terror attack that took place in New York City and the heightened security around the country.”
We’re making the decisions based on the facts, based on our information, based upon what we know,” Moulson said.”
As this situation develops, we’ll make the appropriate decisions based upon our facts and our data, based of what we do know.
“LePage’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The announcement came on the same day President Donald Trump announced he would cancel all trips to the U.K. and France, citing security concerns.
Trump tweeted Friday that he was “very disappointed” that his announcement “could jeopardize our national security.”
He called it a “disaster” and said he would make a decision “in due course.”
LeTaunton said Friday that the state would be making “some decisions” about travel after Trump’s announcement, but that it would be “very difficult” to make decisions on travel from Maine.
The U.N. Security Council will meet in New Zealand next week to discuss the situation.
In a tweet, U.A.E. President Brian Joyce said the “U.
S has been under a lockdown for several hours, but has been open and transparent.
We want to make sure the U (U.N.) and other countries are not left behind.
“A U.T.O. official told The Associated Press that “several dozen” people are on a flight from Maine to New Zealand that has been grounded for about three hours because of a lockdown.
The Associated Press has not been able to independently verify that claim.
A UTS flight from Manchester, N.H., to Manchester, England, had a delay of about 15 minutes because of the lockdown, according to the airline’s website.
On Friday, the UTS tweeted that flights from Manchester to Liverpool, England had been canceled, as well.___Associated Press writer Josh Foust contributed to this report.
