More often than not, when most people in this country think about illegal immigration problems, they’re more likely to have the southern border, rather than the northern border, come to mind.
In fact, it’s very common for any mention of illegal immigration to solely focus on the southern border. This can create an illusion that the northern border doesn’t struggle with illegal immigration. However, the reality couldn’t be more accurate.
Illegal immigration at the northern border doesn’t garner headlines as much as its southern counterpart. Though the problem remains very much real.
In fact, it’s become such an issue that Border Patrol is now trying to get some of its agents over to the northern border, per the Daily Mail.
What’s Really Going on at the Northern Border?
The northern border’s Swanton Sector has been facing unique struggles with illegal immigration, especially since October 2022. This sector spans across Vermont, New Hampshire, and certain parts of New York’s East.
In fact, because of the northern border’s tendency to fly under the radar when it comes to national conversations about illegal immigration, this may very well be playing into the hands of individuals trying to unlawfully enter the United States from Canada.
Being against illegal immigration does not make you "anti-immigrant" any more than being against bank robbery makes you "anti-bank".
Don't let radical leftists get away with falsely labeling you to silence you. It's all they have and it's what they're best at.

This is such a problem that Border Patrol is now pushing for some of its agents to be assigned to America’s northern border in order to crack down against illegal entry.
Border Patrol members who are interested in getting reassigned to the Swanton Sector of the US northern border have until February 23 to volunteer.
Those who are deployed to this sector will be there for just one month, starting on March 1 and ending on April 1.
Not Happy With Joe Biden
Not only is Border Patrol revealing the need for agents to oversee the northern border, but it’s also stressing the role which the Biden administration has played in illegal immigration, to begin with.
The White House tends to deflect and reassign blame when it comes to the situation of illegal immigration. Nevertheless, Homeland Security data has shown an uptick in illegal crossings since Biden came into power.
Joe Biden is the worst ever. He’s mean, reckless, inarticulate, arrogant, vindictive, short tempered, thin skinned, fake, goofy as hell and completely detached from reality.
And in two short years he’s intentionally made a complete train wreck of our border.

It is only to be expected that some folks would try their luck at the northern border, amid so much success at its southern counterpart. The weeks and months ahead, along with updates from border patrol, will reveal whether or not it’s successful in restoring order to the Swanton Sector.
In the meantime, Americans shouldn’t hold their breath waiting on decisive or purposeful action from the White House.
