Illegal movement into the U.S
It is clear that Canada has experienced a surge in the number of people trying to enter illegally. Since January, over 2,000 individuals have gained access across the border of the U.S illegally through unwatched fields and ditches. Several people have found their ways through the Quebec and Manitoba provinces.
According to most of those individuals who entered the United States illegally, they have been living a normal and legal life since they came in, but found their way out because of the President Trump’s immigration policy.
