International border expected to be topic at Obama, Harper meeting
President Obama is scheduled to sit down with Canada’s prime minister in Washington D.C. tomorrow.
The meeting comes just a few days after the release of a government report that said only 32 miles of the two countries’ four-thousand-mile shared border has an “acceptable” level of security.
Michigan Congresswoman Candice Miller says the report confirmed what she’s been saying for some time.
"Not to minimize the problems with the drug cartels and the problems we’re having on the Southern border, but we are under-resourced on the Northern border, and with the small amount of resources we have, to have them continue to raid those resources and ship them to the Southern border, I think is a mistake."
Canadian press reports say President Obama and Prime Minister Stephen Harper are close to signing a landmark security and trade deal.
