Canadians Worry About Obama Border Plans

Barack Obama has a dozen problems on his plate ranging from dealing with terrorism to the economic future of his nation, but for some reason, the president also feels the need to add new issues to the list. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano mentioned while in Canada that she had concerns about America’s border with her northern neighbor and this might result in using the same tactics to Canada that are currently used on the border with Mexico. She mused about the importance of treating all borders the same and applying the idea of fences and border patrols to the Canadian border as though somehow there is fear of immigrants pouring across and entering America as well as bringing in illegal drugs.

The idea of “border parity” makes absolutely no sense and it merely a way of creating a problem where none exists. If Napolitano is worried about “securing” America’s border with Canada, then America must be prepared to spend billions of dollars against a non-existent threat. What exactly is going on in the mind of Barack Obama? Does anyone know?

    To focus on the US-Canada border is ridiculous. Secretary Napolitano has said she wants to stop enforcement of current immigration laws because it inconveniences Mexican illegal immigrants as well as American businesses that hire them.

    Maybe this is some political correctness thing. You know to harass and inconvenience (White) Canadian tourists visiting the US.
