Build that wall!

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective here!"

Image result for U.S. CANADA BORDERFolks I have been saying for months now (as a matter of fact, about a year and a half if anyone is keeping track) that we should build a wall between Canada and the United States.

The latest blow to our borders came just this afternoon when six teenage members of the Burundi robotics team went missing after participating this week in an international competition in Washington, D.C., local police said Thursday. (The team went on to win a silver medal for courageous achievement and then they then made an immediate run for the border!(


On Thursday, a D.C. spokeswoman said two of the team members—16-year-old Don Ingabire and 17-year-old Audrey Mwamikazi—were spotted crossing over into Canada.

The sighting appeared to confirm authorities’ suspicion that the teens were intentionally seeking asylum from their home country. “We don’t have any indication of foul play,” said spokeswoman Margarita Mikhaylova.

The competition’s organizers added that the security of students is “of paramount importance,” and that participants are given safe transportation to and from the Trinity dorms. They, too, believe the teenagers’ disappearance may have been “self-initiated.”

While Canada’s Border Services Agency neither confirmed nor denied the reports, a spokeswoman for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services declined to comment entirely. (Should any of the missing Burundi teenagers try to seek asylum in the U.S., it could take years for them to receive a court hearing, and several more thereafter to receive a formal interview. In the meantime, the teenagers could be detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.)

The Canadian government, by contrast, allows refugees inside Canada to have their claims heard within 60 days of seeking asylum. 

On Thursday, the chairman of the United Burundian-American Community Association told the AP that Burundi citizens generally feel they have a better chance of achieving asylum in Canada, given the current immigration policies in the U.S. and that is why we need to build a wall ......, AND WE WILL GET THE U.S. TO PAY FOR IT!
