    There must be surveillance cameras all along the border.

    That parallel road you see, separated by 5 feet of grass. That's in the USA. If there was animal on the road, it would be real easy to swerve across it. Then you would head down that road, looking for a spot where tarmac crosses the grass. With cameras along the border, I imagine border patrol response would be very quick, especially as you're not going to find a piece of tarmac to cross back.

    I speak from personal experience, sometimes when we drive down to The States to see our friends, we come back this way. It's a nice drive, and lets you beat the traffic if there is an accident on the highway.

    No. You definitely do not want to do that. American border agents are scary people. You do not **** around with them if you want to sleep in your own bed that night.

    The baby boy has been subjected to frigid and filthy conditions, developing blotchy skin and what seems to be an eye infection, his mother wrote in a sworn statement. At one point the child was left naked and exposed for several hours in the cold jail, after all his clothes and blankets were taken for washing, she said.

    The couple, David Connors, 30, and Eileen Connors, 24, says they were denied the right to contact their embassy.

    “We will be traumatized for the rest of our lives by what the United States government has done to us,” Connors wrote in her statement.

    Attorney Bridget Cambria, of Aldea – The People’s Justice Center, filed a complaint on behalf of the family with the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the nation’s immigration agencies.

    Ah yes, the Land of The Free and Home of The Brave.

    And this happens as the wife of a US diplomat flees the country after manslaughter with a vehicle.

    Or go down a residential street in my home town, Surrey. The street is 0 Ave. and those aluminum obelisks are along there too. I could cross the street, across the grass verge and be standing on a residential street in Washington state.
    Did ICE beat you down if your puppy ran across the border into the US?

    Anyway I asked because looking at the map I didn't see an island off the left coast of canada that had a US border.

    Actually you can, very easily. See post #33 for a video.

    Not sure, but even citizens probably should enter the country legally.

    There Isn't one. I just moved here about 8 years ago.
    What there is is a peninsula where the border cuts off the tip and isolates about a thousand Americans who have to bus their kids across border crossings to Blaine, Washington to go to school. That's Point Roberts.

    Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure.

    Can we expect a conspiracy theory from you? So, what in your estimation were they plotting (along with their baby)?
