Montana Ranchers on Canadian Border Watch

Without ever intending to,  newly-elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has saved the United States from the worry of 10,000 unvetted Syrian “refugees” being flown into Canada by the year’s end,  from flooding over America’s unsecured northern border.

Ditto for the 15,000 Trudeau is bringing to Canadian soil in February.

Montana ranchers border watch situational awareness

What happens in Canada stays in Canada as far as Montana ranchers and farmers are concerned.


…”In Montana, which shares a 500-mile (800-km) border with Canada, border agents and some residents say they are concerned about Ottawa’s plan to bring in 25,000 Syrians by year-end, even though the government there insists its screening will be thorough and there are limited indications that militants may be seeking to use refugee status to cross borders.

The world’s longest shared land border attracts a fraction of the U.S. attention and security resources taken up by the much shorter southern border with Mexico, which is patrolled by 18,000 U.S. border agents compared to 2,200 in the north.” (Reuters, Nov. 25, 2015)

In short, Trudeau nicknamed ‘Prime Minister Fluff’ by many detractors not part of the 39% who voted him in, may con Canadians that screening of the “refugees” he’s bringing in before the year’s end is “thorough”, but not down-to-earth Montana ranchers who live and work within feet of the longest international border on earth.

While mainstream media attention is on America’s southern border, there are zero border posts, checkpoints, or any other visible signs of security—other than watchful ranchers and farmers—along the 500-mile-long American northern border.


The rhetoric of politicians like Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau are cold comfort to the the roughly 100 ranchers who span Montana’s border with Canada.

The ranchers don’t have to see what’s going on with the influx of illegals on the boob tube,  they see what’s happening by dint of holding front row seats to the movement of illegals over the unprotected northern border, with their only separation being miles of prairie grass.

The ranchers and farmers—so good at their jobs because they have to be—are credited by U.S. Border Patrol agent Andrew Herdina, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council—the border patrol union—as being “our best asset”.

“Herdina says the most effective tool in tracking illegal border crossers is not the border agents or surveillance airplanes; it’s the roughly 100 ranchers who span Montana’s border with Canada.” (Reuters)


“Last year, one rancher called the border patrol to report two strangers on his land, Herdina said. They were two Guatemalans who had crossed the border illegally.

“Janas Strauser, owner of 66 Ranch on the border, said: “The people up here will report people who cross the border. The ranchers and farmers call them in.”

“While the border patrol union has a stake in securing more jobs and funding, its view was supported by a 2011 report by the Government Accountability Office, a non-partisan congressional watchdog, which found that only 32 miles of the border was properly secure and that the security risks were genuine.

“The terrorist threat on the northern border is higher (than on the Mexican border), given the large expanse of area with limited law enforcement coverage,” the report said.”

Trudeau’s signature in his life in the PMO so far has been celebrity-obsessed fans lining up for selfies with him and removing the portrait of Queen Elizabeth ll from the headquarters of the Foreign Affairs department on the pretext it was taking display room away from Canadian artists.

The far more grounded farmers and ranchers of Montana would consider any of their heifers better looking than a celebrity prime minister from the country next door.

Meanwhile, the Trust Fund son of former Celebrity Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, will find it difficult romancing ranchers and farmers because there’s just no romancing those who actually work for a living.
