    DERBY LINE, Vermont — More than 960 people crossed into the U.S. illegally from the northern border with Canada last year, according to data released from Customs and Border Protection.

    While that number is a tiny fraction compared to the migration across the border with Mexico, it represented a 91 percent increase from the prior fiscal year, the data showed.

    We Americans have adapted. We've discovered how to grow our own maple syrup. Anyone buying from smugglers is a fool.

    I’m thinking non Canadian bad actors are taking advantage of the easier route.

    I actually would not be surprised if there were more illegal crossings going the other way- into Canada.

    Not surprising, from the North and South...

    "Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector continues to apprehend large numbers of illegal aliens, averaging nearly 1000 per day. RGV Sector leads the nation in illegal alien apprehensions, the sector now accounts for nearly 50% of all arrest." - Rio Grande Valley Sector Apprehends Nearly 7,000 Illegal Aliens in One Week

    "WASHINGTON— Tuesday, March 5, U.S. Customs and Border Protection released statistics on Southwest Border apprehensions for fiscal year 2019 which demonstrate a new and growing challenge on the Southwest Border.

    Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) are crossing our borders in record numbers. This fiscal year to date, CBP has seen a more than 300 percent increase in the number of family units apprehended compared to the same time period in fiscal year 2018. Today, family units and unaccompanied alien children (UAC) make up 60 percent of apprehension that have occurred along the southwest border and are predominantly from Central America, namely Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

    Additionally, there have been 70 large groups of 100 or more individuals totaling 12,069 apprehensions, compared to what Border Patrol encountered in FY18, which was 13 large groups, and in FY17, which was only two." CBP Releases Fiscal Year 2019 Southwest Border Migration Stats

    You can come and get the two hanging out at the pond across the street from my house. Canadians are well-known for politeness; these geese don't seem to realize it.

    A few days ago, the Duck Lady was feeding the mallards, and the two geese approached her in an aggressive manner. I don't believe I've ever seen a flock of mallards mob other birds before, but the geese made a strategic withdrawal, as the ducks moved to defend their benefactor.

    There are Muscovee ducks all the time in Florida at certain times of year, and they come from Mexico and Central America. And some of them, I am sure, are good ducks.

    960 illegal crossings from Canada vs how many thousands from Mexico? Doesn't seem like much of a comparison.
