Northern border tragedy warns of new, unfamiliar immigration wrinkle for Canada, U.S.

Published January 23, 2022


The Canadian Press quoted Kathryn Bryk Friedman in a story about four people who died in the cold trying to cross into the U.S. from Canada. The story, which reports that the deaths are likely linked to a larger human smuggling operation, suggests the U.S. will soon have to worry about its northern border. “This sounds terrible, but I think it’s going to take more than four people dying at the border to really galvanize action on the part of Canada and the United States,” she said. “I think it would take a lot more — a tragedy of greater scope.”
