The debate on the wall in the United States could carry in Canada

Le débat sur le mur aux États-Unis pourrait se transporter au Canada

WASHINGTON — The debate that is raging among our neighbours to the South, on the construction of a wall between the United States and Mexico could expand to take account of the immense border that the country shares with Canada.

A budgetary stalemate continues in Washington while the White House wants to get the funding to build a wall on the u.s.-mexican border, as the Congressional democrats stubbornly refuse. The government is partially paralyzed for almost a month now.

While the discussions were mainly on the Southern border, the story of an american media suggests that the democrats will change course and talk about the canada-u.s. border, which according to the statistics, would pose a greater risk to homeland security american.

The representative Lou Correa, a democrat from California and an important member of the committee of the House of representatives on homeland security, told the website Politico that he intended to consider the possibility that there might be security vulnerabilities in the North, which should be worrying the United States.

Canadians are concerned about for several years, the possible strengthening of the u.s. border, especially since the attacks of September 11, 2001.

According to the NBC network, between October 2017 and April 2018, the customs authorities of the Member-States have been apprehended by up to six times more individuals appearing on the list of suspected terrorists at the canadian border to the mexican border.
