America as a rest stop on the way to the promised land

The always witty Texas Rainmaker notices Canada is expressing pain over a new influx of illegal immigrants: Mexicans, slipping over the border from the United States.

Looks like Canada is beginning to enjoy the exciting new world of undocumentation.

Over the past three weeks, 45 families and 31 individuals - approximately 200 people - entered Canada at the Detroit River crossings and applied in Windsor for shelter and social assistance after filing refugee claims with the Canada Border Services Agency. Municipal agencies dealing with the sudden influx of mainly Mexican refugee applicants are renting out hotel rooms and bracing for predicted thousands more to come.
Maybe they're enticed by the "free" healthcare system. Surely a wonderful model of socialized medicine can handle the new "undocumented workers".

"When there is a possibility of adding thousands to the local social assistance system as a result of refugee claimants crossing the border into Windsor, we will become overwhelmed and our current resources will not suffice," Francis wrote in a letter sent Wednesday to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Maybe all those critics worried about the "NAFTA Corridor" stretching up the middle of the United States from Mexico to Canada ought to reconsider their opposition.
