Oh for someone to protect us from Canada
Yes, the United States has an illegal immigration problem. But most of the illegal immigrants come from poor, undeveloped countries. Yet, some people believe that the problem of illegal immigration comes from Canada. Yep, English (and French) speaking Canada. Yes, that country north of us that has universal health care and Wal-Marts that sell sex toys. For some reason the "Minutemen" think that Canadians are storming over our border to take low paying jobs that don't have health insurance at Wal-Marts that do not sell sex toys away from Americans. The other problem with the "Minutemen" is they couldn't find the border and briefly wandered into Canada, becoming illegal immigrants in the process. Talk about being part of the problem and not part of the solution. And someone needs to learn how to use a GPS. If you think illegal immigration from Canada is a problem, compare these numbers:
Border Patrol statistics show the contrast well: The post covering Vermont has 295 miles of boundary and made about 1,900 arrests last year.By comparison, the McAllen, Tex., post -- which has about 40 fewer miles of border -- made 134,000 arrests.Yep that's a problem and I don't think it's with the Canadian border.
