Federal Tories call on Ottawa to halt asylum-seekers entering Canada from the U-S

(CP) - Two Conservative M-Ps are calling on the Trudeau government to halt the flow of people crossing the border from the United States illegally to seek refugee status in Canada.

Tories Michelle Rempel and Tony Clement tweeted Sunday that the crossings are unsafe and place a burden on local law enforcement.

Manitoba Mounties said another 22 people were intercepted crossing the border near Emerson Saturday night.
