This was in the news recently — Lawyer for B.C. man who pleaded guilty to migrant smuggling to challenge mandatory minimum penalty.
But search warrant documents previously obtained by the National Post showed Kong was the subject of a years-long investigation by the Canada Border Services Agency into an operation that saw Chinese nationals fly to the U.S. on valid travel visas and then walk across the border into Canada via Peace Arch Park — a park that straddles the boundary between Surrey, B.C., and Blaine, Wash., and is located next to a major port of entry.
This made me curious about security of CA-US border, and reminded me Smuggler's Inn. Thus I sampled some locations on Google Maps and was flabberghasted to see no fences or monitors!
Boulé, who was born in 1949, has owned the Smuggler's Inn on Canada View Drive for 20 years.
Excuse my French, but no s**t Sherlock! Do you need Sherlock Holmes to deduce that this unfenced borer is TOO easy to cross? Or that an innkeeper right on the border ought be monitored?
Or are illegal immigrations here rare? Or don't CBSA and CBP care?
