during a report The increase in crossings along the US-Canada border is “America’s latest border crisis,” NBC News’ Homeland Security Correspondent Julia Ainslie reported Wednesday.
Ainslie began her report by saying: “Tonight, America has brought about a border crisis. This, in the North.”
She added, “The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office tells us they are meeting immigrants, mostly Mexicans, crossing the border illegally from Canada at record levels. Crossings here are 10 times higher than they were last year, nearly 70,000 crossings across the entire northern border since October.” .
Ainslie reported from the area “where Sheriff David Favreau (D) says his team recently helped rescue more than 20 immigrants, including an elderly woman, from frigid temperatures.” It showed a photo “of a family … who was recently found holding an infant and young child in sub-zero temperatures.”
“Officials say some Mexican immigrants believe they have a better chance of entering the US through Canada and can travel to Canada without a visa,” she added.
Ainslie noted that although there was a spike along the northern border, it was nowhere near the levels along the US-Mexico border.
Host Lester Holt said there was a “new border crisis” in the north.
