Canada refugee plan revives concerns over porous U.S. border

HAVRE, Montana (Reuters) – Standing two feet from Canada on windswept Montana prairie land, U.S. Border Patrol agent Andrew Herdina looks out over a line of crooked old fence posts with no wire between them — the international border.

“If somebody is set on doing it, there are plenty of opportunities to cross this border,” said Herdina, surrounded by a vast expanse of prairie grass where there were no border posts, or checkpoints, or any visible signs of security.

    Washington certainly doesn’t act according to the idea that the US is the jihadists’ most desired target on earth.

    Regarding Canada, my guess is the Mexican cartels offers better smuggling infrastructure via the southern route.

    Obamy and his band of merry men could care less if terrorist came in through the north.

    He’s been letting them in the south border for years.

    Canada should be concerned about unvetted migrants entering from the US …

      Why does Canada care they are inviting and welcoming everyone it doesn’t matter who you are. This is going to be the end of this once great country and we as Canadians don’t seem to care. I wonder what our ancestors would say after fighting and giving their lives for this country?

        The dolts in charge have been dealing with a massive debt that iskilling us, they make to so costly for Citizens to raise children that it’s now the norm sucker in new comers that we have FREE health Care and Education , this which lures them in but we lose money for each one in the Ponze charade of growth where they CAN’T afford to stop buying the votes in this failed Multiculturalism and we can’t afford to stop the growth and pay down the debt .

        Enjoy the ride as the Liberals drive us off a cliff in debt or from sharia law and jihad slaughters.
        The old Canada is DEAD……the people made it great not Trudeau
        and his FREE stuff starting in the 1970’s

        Just take a look at how much Home security we need on top of the safety systems on car because morons and those with no English skill can get a driving permit which raises money to run the Province which also loses money on every thing they touch.

    I support a wall along the border with the U.S. and much more stringent security measures. Thanks to immigration from the third world neither country is the trusted neighbour of years gone by.

      We have witnessed on a regular basis hard-left Americans instigating just about every type of protest against our natural resources, our economy and way of life. They have professional protesters show up and fund more of them from within Canada. Then we had their meddling and influence in our federal election in order to get their “man” as PM.

      • Millie_Woods

        Yes and that too. Thank you for reminding me.
