So I’ve been focusing a lot on the immigration debate as it involves our neighbors to the south lately. Forgotten in the discussion are our friendly, less criminal neighbors to the north. I know it’s hard to believe, but there’s actually another border other than the southern border. I’m aware that a significant number of visitors to this site are actual residents of Canada. They don’t comment, but I guess taking a peek to see e’ry now and then, to see how fucked up life is here in the America, is enough to deter any thoughts of sneaking into our country in seek of a better life.
That’s with the exception of the parents of Brendan Fraser who who could possibly be considered terrorists for the assault their son has had on American popular culture. But other than the Fraser family, it’s safe to say that Canadians are all law abiding, unlike our Latin American neighbors to the south. I mean think about it. We never hear about a Canadian drug war, do we? OK, so the fact that all the dope gets consumed before gets to Canada might be a contributing factor, but you get what I’m saying. I’ll posit that Canadians do not sneak into America, because unlike Latin Americans, they respect the laws that govern the United States.
Of course there are exceptions to the rule, as was the case of Maher Arar, a suspected terrorist, and Canadian citizen with Al Qaeda connections. Sure he was arrested here in the U.S., beaten, tortured, and eventually deported to Syria; but hey, you can’t take any chances with those ethnic middle eastern looking guys; what more “reasonable suspicion” does law enforcement need, right? I mean, why else would the Obama administration through the Justice Department, urge the Supreme Court to not hear his case, right?
What’s important for the purpose of this post, is that you seeing just how the American tax dollar works when it comes to keeping us safer. Yes, and as the following clip of an attempted border crossing by a Canadian shows. There are at least three terrorists apprehended every day at the Canadian border. Terrorists who attempt to enter the United States to do lord knows what. Thankfully U.S. Customs officials in the following video were as vigilant as they were; and, as a result we are a lot safer.
Thank God Canadians aren’t like the animals who reside south of the United States. Let’s face it, the only violent people in Canada are hockey players; and the last thing we need is double our immigration trouble.
