“Nearly 20,000 people crossed into Canada from the US in 2018, according to official government statistics. US Border Patrol statistics show they apprehended 4,316 people crossing from Canada to the United States in 2018.”

“As of March 25, there are currently more than 63,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the United States… At the same time in Canada, there are 1,959. “

So…

– 4-5x the number of people cross the other way (USA–>CAN)

– The USA has 3x the rate of coronavirus cases (adjusted for population)

– Unlike the USA, Canada has universal healthcare.

Why is this even being considered? In what scenario is militarizing the border, even in a limited capacity, helping anyone right now? /smh
