Canadian man arrested by US in alleged human smuggling; wife also charged

Postmedia has confirmed one of those individuals is Michelle Omoruyi's husband, Victor Omoruyi, 40.

But in a tweet sharing Goodale's statement, Reuters reporter Anna Mehler Paperny pointed out that people aren't usually interested in being arrested unless they're serious about seeking refugee status.

Illegals now comprise 20 percent of all asylum claims filed in Canada, with the Liberal government looking increasingly powerless to address the problem.

The arrest was part of an investigation launched in December 2016, said Jason Evert of the Canadian Border Services Agency.

She will make her first court appearance in Estevan on May 15.

Their identities have not been released and it is not known if they are still in custody or if they are facing charges.

Last Friday, American border authorities identified a suspect in the investigation as he entered the U.S. They notified their Canadian counterparts, who in turn alerted the RCMP "that a smuggling attempt may be imminent".

Several people in the United States have also been arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents in connection with the case.

Police Inspector Donovan Fisher said Wednesday that a significant amount of cash was found in a Regina, Saskatchewan, home that was searched the following day.

"They're conducting a parallel investigation on the south side of the border".

He wouldn't say if anyone else is involved in the alleged smuggling or if the woman charged is a Canadian citizen.

That night, RCMP were flagged that a smuggling attempt may be in the works.

The province has been among the few that has not seen a substantial rise in asylum seekers streaming in across the USA border, perhaps due to the fact that those who claim refugee status in the province must pay out of pocket. Most cases occurred in Quebec, Manitoba and B.C. Others all along had Canada as their intended final destination, obtaining US visas exclusively for the objective of coming here.

As Alexander notes, suspending the safe third country agreement would allow Canada to take control of its borders again.

Mounties would not confirm the ages, gender or nationalities of the people from West Africa, but say they have all made refugee claims.
