The Department of Homeland Security outlined a “strengthened” border security strategy with Canada Tuesday; unveiling the new procedures just days after Prime Minister Trudeau warned the United States that his country “will not be pushed around” by tariffs.
In a press release by the DHS, US officials detailed the policies that “establishes a clear vision and concrete actions that will improve DHS’s efforts to safeguard our northern border against terrorist and criminal threats, facilitate the safe and efficient flow of lawful cross-border trade and travel and strengthen cross-border critical infrastructure protection and community resilience.”
Trudeau unveiled Canada’s newest rounds of tariffs against US goods over the weekend in retaliation for President Trump’s taxes on steel and aluminum; telling the G7 summit that his nation will not be “pushed around.”
“I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do,” Trudeau said. “As Canadians, we are polite, we’re reasonable, but also we will not be pushed around.”

TRUDEAU TANKS: Canadian Prime Minister SAVAGELY MOCKED for India Trip DISASTER
Canadian Prime Minister and liberal “darling” Justin Trudeau was severely mocked -and at times harshly criticized- for his recent visit to India; with his country’s Indian and Sikh community slamming the left-wing leader’s actions and clothing as “insensitive” and “stereotypical.”
The Canadian First Family’s visit was riddled with cultural and political mistakes from the start; with Trudeau’s wife unknowingly posing for a photograph with a Sikh separatist convicted of an assassination plot against a prominent Indian leader.
“Obviously we take this situation extremely seriously,” Trudeau said after the photograph. “The individual in question never should have received an invitation. As soon as we found out, we rescinded the invitation immediately.”
The criticism went from bad to worse, with many on social media mocking the Prime Minister’s choice of “traditional” clothing; saying “FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood.”

TRUDEAU TURNS: The Canadian PM ‘BLAMES AMERICA’ for Immigration Problems
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is openly blaming the United States for his country’s illegal immigration problem; saying his negotiations to create an “invisible” border wall between the two nations have “fallen apart.”
Trudeau’s dramatic U-turn comes nearly 15 months after the liberal politician “invited” asylum seekers into Canada. Since then, nearly 26,000 migrants have traveled to the country after passing through the United States.

Trudeau first invited the world’s immigrants after President Trump announced his initial “travel ban” from specific, troubled-nations.
“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you,” he tweeted.
The Prime Minister now seeks to change the original law, requiring those seeking asylum in Canada to “first” register with their nation of origin; in this case the United States.
