Over 100 days since the Capitol riots, the Federal Bureau of Investigation enforced a search warrant on an Alaskan in an alleged attempt to recover Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s laptop. But, they reportedly knocked down the wrong door.

Marilyn and Paul Hueper woke up the morning of April 28th to federal agents swarming their home. An FBI spokesperson confirmed to The National Pulse a “court-authorized law-enforcement activity” at their home.

“12 agents handcuffed me and Paul,” Hueper wrote in a Facebook post. “Interrogated us, searched the house, and left with my phones and laptops.”

Hueper was in the nation’s capital on Jan. 6th but says she only rallied there to listen to former President Trump speak. But she swears she never stormed the Capitol, let alone stole equipment from government offices.

“Apparently, I have a doppelganger… who was part of the Capitol breach, but that was ID’d as me,” Hueper said. She also posted side-by-side pictures of the two. Her doppelganger’s photo captured while she was inside the Capitol.

She originally wrote the post to let her friends know that, since the FBI took her phone, she had a new number. However she also called for attention to the alleged improper investigation.

“I’m posting this because I believe that the more regular people who know what’s going on, the better for all of us,” Heuper wrote. “My story is out there for all of you to know, and hold the FEDS accountable. I’m not who they’re looking for, but maybe I’m becoming too outspoken and they’d just as soon use this as opportunity to intimidate and silence my voice.”

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.
