Illegal immigration numbers

It’s the biggest group of illegal refugees to cross the border at Emerson, Manitoba; so far this year.

Another 29 asylum-seekers followed railway tracls and gravel roads across the snowy border from Saturday to Monday.  Local officials say there’s no indication the numbers will be slowing anytime soon.

The Salvation Army says it has housed 17 families since February 18th at a cost of about $100,000.
