    U.S. Border Control Chief Warns of the Threat Coming From the North: ‘That Is a Tremendous Concern to Us’
    May. 12, 2016 2:08pm Jon Street

    Spanning more than 5,000 miles and 13 states, including Alaska, the U.S.-Canada border could pose a much greater threat to the U.S. than initially thought.
    That’s according to U.S. Border Patrol Division Chief Bradley Curtis, who spoke with WLNY-TV in New York City, which is, as the station pointed out, only 300 miles from the Canadian border.

    “Up here we’re encountering people from every single country,” Curtis said. “They’re coming across on snowmobiles. They’re coming across on ATVs. … We have 95 miles of water boundaries, so people come across on boat, canoes, anything you can think of.”
    Curtis cited one security concern in particular: Canada’s “open door policy” for Syrian refugees.
    Border Patrol operations officer Brad Brandt added to Curtis’ worries, saying that border agents have seen “illegal alien smuggling, narcotic smuggling and currency smuggling.”
    In the past year alone, roughly 10,000 pounds of marijuana and millions of dollars in illegal currency were seized by federal agents at the northern border, according to WLNY.
    Michael Laravia, an agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration, said that, in addition, “there is a significant amount of violence” associated with drugs coming into the U.S.
    Authorities are have also expressed concern over a number of international shipments leaving the U.S. containing illegal guns that have been stopped, WLNY reported.
    All that to say, the Border Patrol, which currently has about 300 agents covering roughly 300 miles, has asked for more agents at or near the northern border, but those attempts have thus far proven unsuccessful.
    “There’s only so many border patrol agents in the country allowed. We’re competing with the southwest border,” Curtis said.

    What border crossing did you cross?
    I only know of two border crossings that would fit your description?
    Glad you came to visit us ---- did you buy some maple syrup?

    If I remember correctly - I once told Lobo - buy maple syrup if the label says 'Made in Canada'  or
    'Maine USA'.      (Eastern Sugar maple trees)  Go visit a 'sugar shack' in Quebec.

    Poutine --- not my favorite  -  fries - too greasy and then gravy (yuk)- 740 calories and 41 grams 
    of fat.

    Not for heart- healthy people.    Many love the taste --- great for them.
    You younger people in here can handle this.
    I heard the lobster poutine is a popular dish - but I don't remember what restaurant advertised it.
    Well,  google it.

    Take care!

    Well out of Fort Fairfield Maine there is a road called Russell road that runs the border with farms on either side, one side of the street is Canada the other Maine. Russell road shortly makes a sharp right turn, at that point becomes Brown Road which crosses the border. I guess you would  call that Aroostook New Brunswick.

    Now I've ruined it, all the duty free potatoes are being halted. the chip Invasion is over.
    lol!

    The duty free are being haulted.  Are these PEI (Prince Edward Island) potatoes?
    They are delicious.  I like Idaho potatoes too.

    Customs - I wasn't thinking about eastern Canada.   Yes, the Canada & US border sometimes 
    divide towns down east.  One side of the street is Canada and the other side is the US.
    The eastern part of North America was settled first  -  did anybody really know where the border
    actually was way back then?  LOL!
    The 49th parallel is Not a straight line - sometimes it favors Canada and sometimes it 
    favors the US.  It's crooked.  Surveyed at different times as the population moved west.
     
    I  just phoned my friend who lives a few miles from the border (western Canada) and she 
    told me that they can still bring back a bag of USA potatoes.

    Guess you'll have to buy some PEI seed potatoes and plant a garden. lol!
