If you're a Canadian then of what interest is it to you whether or not we put a wall on our "southern border"? I certainly wouldn't stick my nose into Canada's political affairs and tell them what they should or shouldn't do.

We arent talking about these people immigrating to Canada but just getting a passport to travel as a tourist, at destination they eventually purchase fake id and live happily ever after in the new country of their choosing,making the wall rather pointless.

Not pointless at all. Only 40% of illegals are visa over stayers in the U.S. Again I ask as a Canadian of what interest is it to you whether we erect a wall on our southern border or not?

Expect that 40% figure to rise dramatically if a wall is built,
As for my Canadian interest? just strikes me that building a wall between you and your neighbor is an interesting issue that sounds from my Canadian perspective as a total waste of money as its so easy to go over,around or through it.We probably have many illegals in Canada many of them US citizens likewise the USA has the best part of a million Canadians residing illegally in the USA.There are no plans to build a Canadian wall. Actually we have a natural wall,its called winter..

It should be of no concern of yours what our country does with its taxes since you say you aren't a citizen of this country so I am skeptical that you truly are a Canadian. If there are American citizens in Canada illegally they should be given the boot also. I fail to see what winter has to do with security on our northern border. Canadians here illegally should be deported also.

Repeating once again. The double layered wall is not easy at all to get over or under. As for visa over stayers we need to track them a lot better also so that number decreases.

OK as i'm not an American then this topic is apparently none of my business, As for your skepticism of my being a Canadian? yeah its all a big plot a veritable conspiracy.. I'd say my participation in this discussion is over.

I was just curious why a proposed wall on our "southern" border would be of interest and/or objectionable to you. It doesn't affect Canada one iota. Therefore my skepticism. I couldn't care less what Canada does politically as long as it doesn't affect my country. Also you have participated in a lot topics about illegal immigration into our country from "south" of our border. Again, this has no affect on Canada. See what I mean?

Canada ain't a big problem since MOST illegal aliens from there lay very low. Too; LatAm supplies many, many times illegal aliens to the US than Canada so it'd make more sense to block off Mexico.
