New Hampshire Governor Will Tackle Northern Border After Silence From Biden Admin

New Hampshire Governor Will Tackle Northern Border After Silence From Biden Admin

In fiscal year 2023, the border patrol encountered 5,906 people along the border of New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.

Do you think the southern border is the only border crisis? Nope.

The northern border is not much better.

New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu will secure the state’s northern border after the Biden administration ignored his concerns:

Sununu announced on Thursday that he’ll use $1.4 million in funding from New Hampshire’s current budget to boost tenfold patrols by state and local law enforcement along the 58-mile border.

While acknowledging that the deteriorating situation along America’s northern border is overshadowed by the crisis along the southern border with Mexico, the governor emphasized that “there have been more apprehensions along our northern border in just this past year than in the last ten years combined.”

“Encounters with individuals on the terrorist watch list at the ports of entry on the northern border have doubled since 2017,” Sununu highlighted.

In fiscal year 2023, the border patrol encountered 5,906 people along the border of New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.

The same region only saw 1,065 encounters in 2022.

Ok, Gov.

Tell me what happens after you apprehend these invaders. They probably end up staying in the USA at government expense. Cheap theatrics.

While many of us believe even one illegal alien crossing our borders is too many there simply isn’t any comparison between several thousands crossing from Canada and several million crossing from Mexico.

    NH doesn’t have a 2000 mile border.

      No, but it has one hell of a lot of woods. Come over the top from Quebec on Rt 3 and its a long way down Moose Alley to Pittsburg. Come around Left and it’s even longer to Errol. I’m thinking they are seeing many coming in down Indian Stream or crossing Beecher Falls and in.

      BTW: I’m a little curious as to why a story about the border crossings in NH starts with a sign and a view of the border building in Beecher Falls, VT. Beecher Falls is the birthplace of Ethan Allen Furniture.

      No State has a 2,000 mile border. The entire Southern border with Mexico which spans across CA, AZ, NM and TX is less than 2,000 miles. Along the Northern border(s) with Canada which spans 5,500+ miles Alaska has the longest border at just over 1,500 miles.

Sununu’s a bushie

Never Trust

I attended a summer production of West Side Story in Portsmouth NH a few years ago. The theater company created an anti-Trump political intro to the musical, criticizing Trump for being anti-immigrant. So my hope is that all of these illegals settle in Portsmouth. How fast will the hypocrites start screaming? (Great production of WSS though.)

I know the sign in the video well having lived a number of years not far from Norton and I still have a place up that way for hunting. The difference with the southern border is that there are not many people there and it’s a long walk anywhere so people crossing unless they are picked up by someone else are quickly recognized and called in.

Wow he’s going to keep us safe from the Cannuk terror!

    You can joke, but if I were a terrorist mastermind, I would have my operatives walk through the woods from Canada to the American side and I will pick them up and drive them to the scene of their matyrdom.

    Mark Steyn pointed out in September 2001 or thereabouts that it’s just as easy for a terrorist to infiltrate from Canada as it is from Mexico. The terrorists coming across the southern border aren’t Mexican, so why would the ones coming across the northern border be Canadian?

      markm in reply to Milhouse. | October 24, 2023 at 10:41 am

      They do have to first clear Canadian immigration controls, who I suspect are much less bribe-able than Mexican officials. But that is no longer so reassuring.

Perhaps introducing more wolves, black bears, and moose into the NH border area might help deter illegal entrants? We could only standby for ensuing hilarity when an illegal stumbling through the woods gets between a mama bear and her cubs…..

I don’t believe article is clear. It is most unlikely each “encounter” represents an individual trying to enter illegally and stay. Most of the NY, VT,NH land border is dense forest and the border is unmarked unmarked. There are lots of accidental crossings, both directions.. As for individuals on the terrorist watch list, the Governor’s actual numbers remain ’mysterious and are stated to be at “Points of Entry’”, not through the forest .

    diver64 in reply to Lexman. | October 21, 2023 at 6:09 am

    No, the border is clearly marked. There is a giant strip of land cleared on both sides and border pillars all along it, marking it. The only place it is not marked is on actual lakes where the markers are on shore. I grew up a stones throw from Quebec.

      Lexman in reply to diver64. | October 21, 2023 at 7:01 am

      Yes, there is a 6 metre strip( 3 in each country), under 7 yards ,where the forest permits( not streams or lakes). Other points remain. Still appears to be an attention getting stunt.

I also believe the article lacks perspective. In February of this year NYC Mayor Adams was organizing bus loads of individuals and families who had graciously accepted NYC Council’s Sanctuary City offer, and was taking them to the Quebec border with the plan to enter Canada illegally and make spurious asylum claims. There is no Canadian parallel to this.
