A legal loophole has would-be refugees in the U.S. coming into Canada through the Quebec border, CBC News has learned.
"Sometimes we get half a dozen of them on a shift, and then you’re a week without getting any, said RCMP Sgt. Christian Dubois. "And then, all of a sudden, ‘boom.’"
Dubois said since the new RCMP border patrol started, more than half of their time is being spent on would-be refugees.
Police say there have been 64 arrests in just two months along the 140 kilometres of the Quebec-Vermont border. (Alison Redlich/Associated Press)
