The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Tuesday extended nonessential travel restrictions at U.S. land borders with Mexico and Canada through June 22 that were set to expire on Wednesday.

"Nonessential travel will not be permitted until this administration is convinced that doing so is safe and secure," Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement. "We have been in contact with our Canadian and Mexican counterparts and they also agree that extending these restrictions is prudent at this time."

Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada and the United States have agreed to extend a ban on nonessential land travel between the two nations by another 30 days.
