Trump looking to put troops near Canadian border amid coronavirus fears

Source: Global News

American government officials inside Donald Trumpís White House are actively discussing putting troops near the Canadian borders in light of U.S. border security concerns around the coronavirus pandemic, sources tell Global News.

Few people cross from Canada into the United States at an unofficial point each year but the goal of the policy would be to help border guards detect irregular crossers, the sources said.

Trump should get his facts straight. The crossers are coming INTO Canada from the States, not the other way around.

1. Is that to keep Americans from escaping into Canada?

Because I doubt many Canadians are going to want to come here.

3. But you notice he's 'posting troops at the border,' implicating that Canadians ARE

going to try to cross. His magats will swallow it whole, even when it's total bullshit.

4. Maybe we the public should put a border around the white house so that no one can leave or enter

and ban all toys for personnel use, helicopters, cars, trucks, no more garbage pick-up, food drop-off for starters ..........so the country can be protected from the fatnixon .....................what an idiot...............

But hey, Donnie boy -- build the damn wall. Oh wait, you couldn't even get the wall built on the Mexican border, or at least one that wouldn't collapse.

What a putz. What a loser. What a completely dangerous "thing" you are.

15. Meanwhile on the southern border

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52053656?at_custom2=twitter&

Residents in Sonora, south of the US state of Arizona, have promised to block traffic into Mexico for a second day after closing a checkpoint for hours on Wednesday.
They wore face masks and held signs telling Americans to "stay at home".
Mexico has fewer than 500 confirmed Covid-19 cases and the US over 65,000.
The border is supposed to be closed to all except "essential" business, but protesters said there has been little enforcement and no testing by authorities.
The blockade was led by members of the group Sonorans for Health and Life, who called for medical testing to be done on anyone who crosses from the US into Mexico.

The Trump administration dropped its consideration of plans to send U.S. military forces to the Canadian border to help with efforts to combat the new coronavirus, a U.S. official said Thursday, disclosing that decision after Canadian officials had strenuously objected to the idea.

28. Good! Thanks! What a stupid yet very 'Trump' idea! Most...

family and friends I'm in contact with in Canada thought it was a nutty idea too. Some of the border patrol up here already can be a PITA about harassing local people, they don't need help.

20. Self-isolate.

Iím not planning on traveling to the US anytime soon, sadly. Please take care and listen to health professionals. The look from Canada is that the US is in dire trouble - the incompetence is terrifying. Love you all at DU. Stay safe and healthy.

that "illegals" are sneaking in through Canada. Several magaheads in my universe are always spouting off about this.
