Biden Northern Border Crisis: New York Might Adjust Sanctuary Laws Due to Increase of Illegal Crossings

Biden Northern Border Crisis: New York Might Adjust Sanctuary Laws Due to Increase of Illegal Crossings

This is important: Anyone flying from Mexico to Canada does NOT need a visa to enter Canada.

Let me get this off my chest. The New York Times published a sympathetic piece on the increase of illegal crossings at the northern border to pull at your heartstrings.

It really ticked me off.

Yes, it sucks, but keep the emotion out of it, especially since Canada is not going to be helping us soon.

This is important: Anyone flying from Mexico to Canada does NOT need a visa to enter Canada.

Therefore, anyone worldwide can fly to Canada and cross the northern border into America.

I want to ask them why they aren’t staying in Canada. Some have said they don’t have work in the winter and want to end up in Orlando, FL.

My head hurts. I mean, come on.

Anyway, we have to stop ignoring the northern border. I have written a few pieces on the border.

But the situation continues to worsen. The border patrol in the Swanton Sector has apprehended over 3,100 people since October 1, the first day of Fiscal Year 2024.

Doesn’t seem like a lot, right? Well, that 3,100 number is more than the years 2022, 2021, 2020, and 2019 combined.

The people have come from 55 different countries.

New York

New York might even change its sanctuary laws because of the increase. From WGRZ:

Officials across the region have witnessed a 300% uptick in illegal crossings across the river since late December, causing concern for Western New Yorkers.

“While there’s a lot of focus on the southern border, and rightfully so, a lot of those same issues … we’re seeing impacts here in the northern border,” New York State Senator Robert Ortt said.

But for Niagara County politicians, the concern isn’t those they’ve been able to stop, but rather the ones they haven’t and the state’s current legislation keeping local law enforcement from intervening.

“Our local law enforcement, and in some cases, our federal partners, their hands are tied,” Ortt said. “The sanctuary state policies preclude local law enforcement … from cooperating or notifying federal authorities if they suspect someone is in this country illegally.”

Because of this, Ortt, alongside other Niagara County Republicans, announced new legislation Thursday aimed at changing the state’s sanctuary policies and restoring power to local law enforcement in these border-crossing situations.

“We’re telling you the numbers of people that have been caught,” Ortt said. “That’s the point. We don’t know if those are the actual full numbers because we have roadblocks the state of New York has put up to prevent the enforcement of federal law, and that’s the issue.”

North Dakota

Don’t forget the other portion of the northern border! Authorities arrested 34 people in northeast North Dakota in February.

This story caught my eye because all the detained are Romanian family units.

In November, I wrote about border patrol apprehending Romanians linked to organized crime at the Canada-U.S. border.

The Grand Forks Sector apprehended 300 people at the end of Fiscal Year 2023.

In 2022, the agents apprehended 81 people. In 2021? 90 people.

So far, the agents have taken in 49 people. The chart doesn’t include stats in January.

These agents need help, too. From KFYR:

“We cover 861 miles of border and we have roughly 200 agents, so our agents, they’re incredibly vigilant, but that’s a very big ask to cover that vast of an area with that few people,” said Marcus.

Residents tipped off Border Patrol about the group of migrants.

“The public is really our eyes and ears out there. They know when things are out of place,” said Marcus.

Last week, Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner wrote a letter to North and South Dakota congressional delegates, urging them to do something to help the border crisis. As of Wednesday, Feb. 7, Jahner tells us he has received no responses to his letter other than notification that it was received.

In his letter, Jahner said our states are seeing a rise in narcotics trafficking and overdoses, a rise in mental health and addiction-related issues and a rise in homelessness. He said all of these are putting huge strains on public safety. He points to the root of these issues as not necessarily being illegal immigration, but more so on drugs being brought across the southern border.

The sheriff said in Cass County alone last year, its drug task force seized almost 47 lbs. of meth, more than 10 lbs. of fentanyl pills, almost seven lbs. of heroin, more than six lbs. of cocaine, three lbs. of mushrooms, and two lbs. of fentanyl powder— all of which are said to be linked to the southern border.

Perhaps these border crossers have poor memories and are basically swell people.

Lucifer Morningstar | February 12, 2024 at 9:34 am

>>I want to ask them why they aren’t staying in Canada.

Because Canada has actual immigration laws & standards that they enforce on illegals and they don’t hand out the free benefits to illegals the way the United States does. So there’s no reason for them to stay in Canada.

    True story. SOme years back I actually went through all the requirements and legally emigrated into Canada as a lawful permanent resident. Process took most of a year and a half to complete. During the face o face ierview a the Consul’s office in San Francisco they made it abundantly clear: IF at any tie before becoming a full citizen yuo end up needing public assistance, we will provide that assistance. It WILL BE in the form of a one way plane ticket back to the city nearest your former residence in the US. We will come collect you and escort you into the airplane and remain until the cabin is sealed for takeoff. do you understand this> Uhh, Yes Ma’am. (back in those days we treated government officials with such respect. But she really WAS a very nice Lady. and warranted the respect.

JohnSmith100 | February 12, 2024 at 9:46 am

While not as urgent, we will need a northern border wall. Wally alone will not be enough, there will also need surveillance and drones.

Canada, meanwhile, has historically had very high support for immigration.

“I think part of the reason for that is that there is a degree of public trust that immigration to Canada is well-managed by the government and also is managed in a way that serves Canada’s interests,” Mr Cameron said.

    Tionico in reply to destroycommunism. | February 14, 2024 at 2:35 am

    haviing gone through their process personally and lived there as a “landed immigrant” for some years, I would say that statement is quite accurate.
    The key part of their entire process is this, and I had it clearly spoken to me as I sat in the Canada Consul’s office in San Francisco as part of my own immigration process: if you ever are in a position to need public assistance we will provide that for you in the form of a one way plane ticket to the airport nearest your former city of residence in your native country. We will provide an escort which will come pick you up, and we will escort you onto the airplane and remain standing by until the door is closed and sealed in preparation for takeoff.
    I came to know quite a number of ex Yank immigrants to Canada, many of whom had become full citizens (seven year process, if memory serves). All of us were productive people, a part of the Canadian culture, hardworking and none of us had our hands held out for “bennies” from da gummit. Trudeau Pére was Prime Minister then. Now his sprog, (or maybe not, as it seems…..) Trudeau Fils, is PeeEmm, I”m really glad I decided to repatriate to the US. We had it bad enough here. I suspect had lived up north through the dictatorship of Trudeau Fils I managed to make the mandates and nonsense non-events where I lived. Pretty much totally ignored the whole madness. Could not have done north of Forty Eight.

“While there’s a lot of focus on the southern border, and rightfully so, a lot of those same issues … we’re seeing impacts here in the northern border,” New York State Senator Robert Ortt said.”

What a pay-per-view “oh shit” moment it must have been when sanctuary New York suddenly remembered that they had a “border” of their own!

Publius_2020 | February 12, 2024 at 1:03 pm

So it’s averaging less than 1000 per month, when the nationwide total is more than 300,000 per month?

That doesn’t quite rise to the level of “border crisis.” By all means, LE should enforce the immigration law. But I’m not seeing a specific ‘crisis” in upstate NY.

    CommoChief in reply to Publius_2020. | February 12, 2024 at 4:18 pm

    12K uninvited folks traipsing all over sparsely populated rural counties is a much bigger deal than the same numbers in NYC.

      Publius_2020 in reply to CommoChief. | February 12, 2024 at 7:42 pm

      Your math needs work.

      The article states that the current year (4 months) total is more than the last four years combined. That means that the five year total is 6000, not 12K.

      And you’re completely wrong about the impact on “sparsely populated counties,” because you’re not focusing on how big these counties are. If you look at the size of the relevant area, you’ll see that it spans 6 and 1/2 states. Over the course of FIVE YEARS the total number of illegal migrants entering this zone is less than the total in Texas in ONE DAY.

      It’s just not a crisis under any realistic view of the math.

    Tionico in reply to Publius_2020. | February 14, 2024 at 2:36 am

    WAIT for it. Coming soon to a burg near you.

When at least one billion people would surely come to the USA if they could, it is obvious that the longer this goes on the more efficient invasion will become, including the Northern border.

Lucifer Morningstar | February 12, 2024 at 3:05 pm

>>Therefore, anyone worldwide can fly to Canada and cross the northern border into America.

Nope. Not legally supposed to happen that way.

>>Canada–United States Safe Third Country Agreement

The Canada‒United States Safe Third Country Agreement (STCA) is a treaty between Canada and the United States. It sets out the rules of refugee/asylum claims. This agreement stipulates that a refugee must claim asylum in the first country in which they arrive, either Canada or the US.

If the treaty was actually enforced then illegal entries from the Canadian side would not be happening. They’d have to claim refugee/asylum in Canada as being the first country they arrive in. So just send them all back over the border and tell Justin he’s got to deal with it.


Lucifer Morningstar | February 12, 2024 at 3:17 pm

>>New deal with U.S. allows Canada to turn back migrants at the border

Alters the Canada-United States Safe Third Country Agreement and allows Canada to turn back those illegally entering Canada anywhere along the U.S./Canadian Border and more importantly allows the United States to do the same with those that illegally enter the United States from Canada.

Wonder why Joe just doesn’t invoke these changes and send all the illegals entering the U.S from Canada back and tell Trudeau to deal with them. That would solve any problems on our Northern border.


We need a $500 bounty per head with no bag limit – that will be cheaper than all the welfare costs these freeloaders will accurate. WE need a Treblinka and Auschwitz for illegals. In WWII German Jews were bonafide citizens of Germany and had rights. These invaders are not US citizens and have no rights. It’s our country and our culture (not theirs). This will be down voted but I am correct.

    Tionico in reply to walls. | February 14, 2024 at 2:40 am

    wear your downvotes with pride. You DO speak truth.

    and don’t anyone bother to downvote ME as I totally ignore the up.down votes. Of no significance to me.

BierceAmbrose | February 12, 2024 at 11:38 pm

Well, that’ll save Texas some money on bus tickets.

WildernessLawyer | February 13, 2024 at 8:14 am

Funny how these northern leftists were all into virtue signaling as long as southern states were bearing the brunt of a flood of “migrants.” Only after they have to bear some of the costs of this invasion do they suddenly discover that this is a problem.

Mystified | February 13, 2024 at 11:31 am

NY State policies prevent local police from reporting illegal aliens to federal immigration agents? Are those policies statutes, or are they gubernatorial (i.e., political party) positions deemed to be permissible under the state constitution? Either way, perhaps if you want to get the ball rolling in NY you county/borough/etc. leaders should engage in a little civil disobedience: contact the feds and your congressional reps to tell them what you are doing and why. Do it strongly enough and you will certainly get national media attention to your plight.

Where were you when would-be migrants were streaming north through the same area and crossing into Canada to claim refugee status? Our resources are really strained as well.

Subotai Bahadur | February 13, 2024 at 6:21 pm

If we are ever to restore national sovereignty, among other things we will have to make our laws supreme within our borders AND we will have to have borders we control. Note the beginning “if” in the previous sentence.

I do admit to more than a passing amount of amusement at the concept of the American North-East having to deal with not only the hostile foreign invasion from across our southern border, but also the prospect of dealing with a bunch of arrogant, entitled,Quebecois from the north.

    Tionico in reply to Subotai Bahadur. | February 14, 2024 at 2:48 am

    au contraire, mon amí. les quebeçoise are not the ones invading. No, Read the citations above.. Bengladesh (wonder where they bought their warmish winter jackets, or had them donated by some NGO) was one of the countries of origin mentioned.
    But from WHERE are all these people getting the money to buy their plane tickets? And what about the policy I’ve run into multiple times where I have not been allowed to enter a different country with a one way inbound fare. I MUST also show the ticket for my return flight. This tells me the government agencies at the boundary are jigging the system, too. Playing along to feed those illegals right into OUR country. Seems just a tad bit on tthe odd side, I should say……
