Amidst a tense and interruption-filled hearing, Representative Ken Buck (R-CO) used a portion of his time to speak to Attorney General Barr, his fellow members, and Americans watching about the dangers Antifa poses to the nation — and why they must be stopped.

Buck referenced a peaceful pro-police rally held in his home state of Colorado. Families and older individuals were among the rally-goers who joined to express their appreciation for the men and women in blue.

“Counter protestors were given plenty of space to advocate their message,” Buck said. “But as the afternoon wore on, a swarm of violent Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Black Lives Matter counter protestors and began assaulting pro-police Americans.”

The Congressman said the local police were ordered to retreat once members of Antifa were seen at the rally. He highlighted one lieutenant who stayed to protect the peaceful protestors.

Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year

The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.

According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.

ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.

Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries. 

Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.

Surprisingly, ADN reports:

A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.

Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
