Canada: Border agents stopped 150 U.S. sex offenders from entering Canada

Canada Border Services agents stopped more than 150 U.S. sex offenders from entering Canada, in part due to a partnership with United States customs, the federal government announced Monday.

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney made the announcement Monday morning at Montreal’s Trudeau International Airport. In 2014 alone, information provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents helped CBSA agents refuse entry to 59 sex offenders. Full Article

Border agents stopped 150 U.S. sex offenders from entering Canada

150 people that probably just wanted to take a little vacation and spend some money in Canada.

There go those tourist dollars.

Anybody who has a felony can not enter Canada (DUIs included) . A very large group of Americans are effected . A good strategy for this would be a public “Boycott Canada” movement as Canadians start thinking about losing money they will start changing their laws

Canada must be using common core math. 59=150 or is it 150=59?

I think this is the same convoluted math used to assign risk assessment numbers.

Oh, and recidivism and reoffense rates.

Is the U.S./Canadian border similar to the U.S./Mexican border? Can someone walk into or drive into Canada from Washington or any other state that is connected to Canada? I wonder how all the people were traveling when they were denied entry into Canada? Were they traveling by a plane and/or by a car?

‘Ich Bin Ein Berliner’…….this is the new Berlin Wall…it was an offense against history and humanity then….its an offense against history and humanity Now.

“…..separating family and friends who wish to be joined together. “

I was there traveling for my job back in October! Had been there 2 other times successfully. “For work!” My crime was over 20 years old. Laws seen to change everyday. I would call it “DOUBLE Jeopardy!” but that would be less than accurate.

Once again registered citizens are being punished for crimes that politicians think they might possibly commit in the future. Had they committed a new crime in the present, they would already be locked up in jail somewhere.

I can only reflect on how delighted the public is when politicians authorize the unlawful torture of prisoners in places like Guantanamo, or when American drones kill women and children in those awful Middle Eastern countries. Torture and murder are Jim Dandy, it seems, while sex without violence, and by mutual agreement, is somehow uniquely terrifying and horrible.

Violence is fine in America…we invade countries and kill innocent people all the time…have since day one. We have people dying on the streets each day on skid row. Yet, sex is the most taboo and terrifying concept to the average American.

“Dangerous criminals.” All you guys who have to register for urinating in pubic? Don’t come to Canada, you’re not welcome here!

I read the comment 59/150 as well? I’ve visited (19 years ago/battery/massage parlor/wobbler/summary probation/reduced to misdemeanor/expunged years ago) Canada several times. I’ve flown in and drove in a few times. No issues whatsoever. So, as there have been so many discussions before, are they just stopping child related offenders? Those with felony convictions? I think this should be discussed. What if it’s a non child related offense/expunged altogether? Now, when returning to the US, the stopped me for a few min’s/via the airport/probably ran me and I was on my way/very courteous ect. When I returned via car, stopped, ran… Read more »
