Hundreds of Africans are illegally crossing the unprotected U.S.–Canadian border near Pembina, North Dakota—and claiming “asylum” in Canada, even though there is no reason to “flee” the U.S. except possibly for better welfare handouts north of the border.
This latest—and nearly unbelievable—scam has come to light with a sudden surge of Africans being intercepted by the Canadian authorities near Emmerson, Manitoba, over the past few weeks.
According to a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), “hundreds” of Africans have entered Manitoba near the Emerson border crossing in an attempt to get asylum in Canada.
The invasion has apparently been proceeding for some time, but has only come to public attention with the news that two blacks from Ghana were hospitalized in Winnipeg after getting frostbite while they wandered around, lost, on Christmas Eve morning on Highway 75 near the Canada–U.S. border.

Asked by CBC, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) admitted that 410 “refugee claimants” had been intercepted near the Emerson port of entry while crossing into Canada between April 1, 2016 and Dec. 8, 2016.
“Individuals attempting an illegal border crossing are intercepted by the RCMP and brought to the Emerson border crossing, where they can make a refugee claim,” said Jacquie Callin, a CBSA spokesman—although she did not say exactly why anyone would be seeking asylum coming from the U.S.
She did however say that the “majority of refugees entering near Emerson are from Somalia.” So far, no news has emerged of where exactly all these Africans are coming from, apart from the obvious fact that they were already in the U.S. before crossing the border into Canada.
Somalis could possibly be coming from the large Somali population in Minnesota, but it is equally unclear how Somalis from the U.S.—settled in the latter country as “refugees”—could possibly qualify for “asylum” in Canada.
Furthermore, if the African invaders are not actually legally resident in the U.S.—something which is extremely plausible, given the Obama regime’s “open borders” and “catch and release” policies—it is also a mystery as to why they are not applying for “asylum” from the American government.
The CBSA “declined to comment” when asked by CBC how hundreds of people could be making their way into Canada, saying that they were only responsible for manning the border post, and that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) were responsible for patrolling the area.
CBC reported that it was “not clear” how many of the Africans are able to stay in Canada, but the presumption is that they all are. This is because after applying for “asylum” and filling out the paperwork, claimants have their photos taken and are given hearing dates at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, and then released once again.
Derek Sabourin, mayor for the Regional Municipality of Montcalm, which covers the area just north of the Emerson border, told CBC that “residents have been reporting people coming across their land for years.”
There are no fences near the Emerson border, and the only border markers are ditches across which people can walk, he said. “It’s a safety issue and people don’t like people walking through their properties at night,” he added.
“The windmills have red lights on top in the southern part of our municipality, so you know if they’re walking to the red lights, I guess you could say that’s like their northern star. They just, you know, walk towards the red lights and eventually they’ll be in Canada.”
Sabourin said local RCMP told him in July 2016 that 41 “undocumented people” were taken into custody during a six-week period alone. “They just walk on through or get picked up and brought to the border service,” he said.
He said that it was his understanding that most of the people are coming from Minneapolis and originally from Somalia.
