Illegal border crossing: human smuggling charges laid

Illegal border crossing: human smuggling charges laid

Canadian authorities caught 887 asylum seekers crossing unlawfully into Canada from the United States in March, almost triple the number in January, according to numbers released by the government Wednesday.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police they intercepted a 43-year-old woman driving nine people across the US border into the prairie province of Saskatchewan on Friday night.

The following day, police seized a significant amount of cash at a home in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan connected to the same woman.

Police say the United States Border Patrol has arrested several other people related to the same investigation, but no details have been released.

One person has been charged in connection with a human smuggling case in southeast Saskatchewan.

The operation, Project FADDUCE, involves the Canada Border Services Agency, RCMP Integrated Border Enforcement Team and United States Customs and Border Protection - office of the border patrol and office of field operations and homeland security investigations.

"They were processed by the CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) and they've been released into Canada", RCMP Insp.

The announcement today said that nine foreign nationals were stopped at the border in a vehicle with Omoruyi and taken into custody.

The two most popular provinces for asylum seekers crossing illegally continues to be Manitoba and Quebec. Omoruyi is set to appear in court on May 15. The agreement states that people can't make refugee claims at Canada-U.S. land border crossing points because they should have lodged one in the country they first entered.

The 2004 pact, known as the Safe Third Country Agreement, forces most migrants to apply for asylum in the first country in which they arrive. "At this time, we're doing the same thing", said Fisher. Canadian police said their American counterparts also arrested people but would not say whether any charges had been laid.
