BUILD THE WALL:

Illegal border crossings from Canada quietly rising, data shows (Kerry Sanders, Ezra Kaplan and Daniella Silva, 3/09/19, NBC News)

DERBY LINE, Vermont -- More than 960 people crossed into the U.S. illegally from the northern border with Canada last year, according to data released from Customs and Border Protection.

While that number is a tiny fraction compared to the migration across the border with Mexico, it represented a 91 percent increase from the prior fiscal year, the data showed.

The Trump administration's rhetoric on border security has largely homed in on the southern border, which has seen an influx of thousands of families with children from Central America seeking asylum in the United States.

It's the coastal walls that are really going to be expensive.
