Exactly, Canada has every right to enforce it's own border, just as the US and Mexico do.

There are some international treaties that state that asylum seekers who migrate from one "safe" country to another should be deported back to the first "safe" country they reached, which is why some European countries dump asylees in Greece, Spain, Italy, etc.

Why is no one holding the Mexican govt to account for this? What do you think They would do if thousands of Americans were crossing illegally into Mexici every week?

I don't think it would apply to Mexican nationals since they don't usually qualify for asylum here. But if they were claiming asylum in Canada and these treaties applied, Canada would likely be well within their rights to deport the Mexican asylum seekers back to the US instead of directly to Mexico (under certain circumstances).

Actually Canada does have a lot of illegal aliens but not so much south of our border but Asians and mostly Chinese.

I really don't think thousands of American citizens are fleeing to Mexico illegally but I do know Mexico does have a problem on their southern border with illegals fleeing from Central American. That is why they built a wall on their southern border.

Maybe if Mexico did have a problem with poor Americans going south they would build and pay for the wall like Trump wants.
