Number Of Illegals Entering Canada In March Triples From January

Number Of Illegals Entering Canada In March Triples From January

The RCMP revealed on Wednesday morning that nine foreign nationals were intercepted on Friday at about 9 p.m. while crossing into Canada in an area between the North Portal and Northgate ports of entry at the Saskatchewan-United States border.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said it intercepted a 43-year-old woman driving nine people across the US border into the western province of Saskatchewan on Friday night.

Omoruyi's lawyer, Aaron Fox, declined to comment Thursday.

Michelle Omoruyi, 43, of Regina was charged with human smuggling after she was stopped driving near the USA border with nine people from West Africa inside the vehicle, RCMP said Wednesday.

They were processed by the Canada Border Services Agency and have been released into Canada. But a senior US border official said Thursday the growing numbers of migrants seeking to jump the border has everyone on high alert.

The nine individuals were not injured and were transferred into CBSA custody.

Meanwhile, those illegally entering Canada at unmanned crossings get to stay in Canada while their refugee claim works its way through the system.

A home in Regina was searched the following day and RCMP said a significant amount of cash was found.

Police said nine people from West Africa were in the vehicle.

"At the moment, one of the byproducts of the agreement is that we create incentives for people to cross irregularly and that gives business to smugglers and puts peoples' lives and their safety at risk", Janet Dench of the Canadian Council for Refugees told the Guardian earlier this year. The charges against Omoruyi have not been proven in court.

Anecdotally, some asylum seekers have said that U.S. President Donald Trump's stance on immigration - specifically, his controversial ban on travellers from seven Muslim-majority countries - was the reason they made the journey. Maybe it's due to their knowledge of the area or because they can provide a means of transportation, he said. Through March, there has only been one interception in New Brunswick and Alberta, five in Saskatchewan, and none in Ontario. Burke County Sheriff Jeremy Grohs said they were suffering from frostbite and the onset of hypothermia.
