REPORT: DHS has announced a ‘strengthened Northern border strategy’


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NEWSWEEK.COM:

With tensions between the U.S. and Canada on the rise, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced a “strengthened” Northern Border Strategy that it claims will help “combat terrorism” and “help facilitate travel and trade” at its border with Canada.

In a press release published on Tuesday, the DHS said its new strategy “establishes a clear vision and concrete actions that will improve DHS’s efforts to safeguard our northern border against terrorist and criminal threats, facilitate the safe and efficient flow of lawful cross-border trade and travel and strengthen cross-border critical infrastructure protection and community resilience.”

The article goes on to state the following:

While the newly released border strategy opens with a summary calling the U.S. and Canada “two friendly nations with a long history of social, cultural and economic ties,” tensions between the countries have become increasingly fraught.

The border strategy’s release comes just days after President Donald Trump announced steel, aluminum and auto tariffs on its northern ally, citing a “national security” threat.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lashed back, calling America’s tariffs “insulting” and vowing to “move forward with retaliatory measures on July 1, applying equivalent tariffs to the ones that Americans have unjustly applied to us” during a Saturday press conference.
