September 12, 2023 | The Northern Border Has Been Breached

The focus has been on the mass influx of illegals from the open southern border. However, migrants have also found their way into the US by crossing the northern border from Canada. The US Border Patrol declared that more migrants have entered the US via Canada in the past 11 months than in the entire last decade. The US and Canada agreed in March 2023 that they would send asylum seekers away from the border, but neither Biden nor Trudeau has kept their promise as the situation builds. This seems to be a deliberate attempt to fill both countries with migrants, although the US is the destination of choice.

“Over 6,100 apprehensions from 76 different countries in just 11 months, surpassing the last 10 years combined,” Swanton Sector Chief Patrol Agent Robert Garcia posted on X. Only 365 people were apprehended at the Canadian border in 2021, followed by 1,000 the following year. However, the message that the US has become an open hub for anyone has spread. Border agents have apprehended 7,633 people during the first seven months of the year. Again, these are only the people who were caught.

The issue at the northern border pales in comparison to the thousands crossing from the south every week. It shows that people need not travel on foot to escape their previous lives. People can safely fly into Canada and illegally cross into the US. Do you know how much a ticket from China to Canada costs? It is too much for the average struggling “dreamer” to pay without assistance. There is now also an open market for human smugglers who are paid to help people cross into America. This is bad news for America’s fentanyl drug crisis as well since cartels from Latin America are sending their mules into the country from both sides. This issue is costing the US billions and ruining our cities. Even sanctuary cities are begging for a solution as they never expected a full-scale invasion.
