VIDEO: Illegal northern border crossings quietly climbing
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by APNEWS.COM:
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The number of people apprehended along the U.S. border with Canada is continuing to climb, according to newly released statistics from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Statistics from the fiscal year that ended last Sept. 30 show that 4,316 people were apprehended near the more than 5,500-mile (8,851-kilometer) border last year, up from 3,027 in 2017 and 2,283 in 2016.
The article goes on to state the following:
Of the 2018 total, 963 or about 22 percent, were apprehended after illegally crossing the border from Canada, a figure that is a subset of the larger number, which includes people apprehended by border agents inside the United States near the Canadian border who authorities were unaware of how they entered the country.
The report stated that illegal crossings into the area that includes upstate New York, Vermont and New Hampshire accounted for more than half of the people along the entire border who entered illegally from Canada.
Border agents have said that in some cases, sophisticated smuggling rings will bring people across the border and hand the crossers off to people sent to meet them. In others, documents show people will walk across the border from Quebec into the United States and then call a taxi to be taken further south.
Recently, four people were caught in a van just south of the Canadian border, in New York – consisting of three Mexican nationals and a driver who was smuggling them into the U.S.

New numbers from CBP show a trend of more Mexicans traveling to Canada and then entering the US illegally. This week @KerryNBC and I went to the northern border to see for ourselves. We have a full report tonight on @NBCNightlyNews https://t.co/1uCjoEXSZC
