Here’s one more issue with illegal immigration but it’s not coming from the southern border, it’s coming from the north in Canada.
A little known loophole is allowing Mexican citizens to easily fly to Canada and then try and cross illegally into the U.S.
In fact, over half of illegals arrested at the U.S./Canada border are Mexican!
A little over 4,000 illegals were captured at the U.S./Canadian border last year and a little over 2,000 are Mexican. total arrests at our northern border skyrocketed by 43-60% between 2017 and 2018.
This might not seem like much because it only makes up about 1% of the total coming illegally into America every year, but it needs to stop.
The reason this is happening is that Mexican nationals do not need a visa to fly to Canada.
“Sometimes it’s just easier for them to fly into Canada without a visa and then cross into the U.S., than to use a smuggling route out of Mexico. It’s cheaper to get that airline ticket and just come across.” – Border patrol Chief Dennis Harmon
Michigan residents might want to know that over half of the illegal Mexicans came through the Detroit sector last year. Detroit is a sanctuary city so once they get there they are home free.
The Vermont sector had the second highest number of illegal border crossers.
This is the U.S. Border Patrol in the winter…Brrrrrrrr
No matter the day or the weather conditions the U.S. Border Patrol is always on patrol or training for anything along the northern border.

Our northern border with Canada in the winter:
Part of #USBP Maine’s area of responsibility includes the “North Maine Woods”, more than 3.5 Million acres of forest right on the US/Canada border.
