Teams of Canadian soldiers stretched canvas across the metal frames of tents at a camp site near the Quebec-U.S. border Wednesday as they helped fellow authorities cope with the crush of asylum seekers crossing into Canada.
Canada has deployed soldiers to erect tents near the USA border to temporarily house hundreds of asylum seekers crossing from NY state, officials said on Wednesday, an influx of mostly Haitians prompted by fear of deportation by the US government.
About 100 Canadian soldiers were near the American border Wednesday, setting up a camp to house some 500 of the asylum-seekers who continue to stream into Quebec from New York State.
The camp is being built in anticipation of a large influx of asylum seekers from the US, said Stéphane Malépart, a spokesperson for Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). "When the site is completed, the military will return to their home base". Even before the flow of Haitian asylum seekers Canada was on track to have the most refugee claims in nearly a decade.
"The Canadian Armed Forces will have no role in security matters", said Evan Koronewski, a spokesperson for the Department of National Defence.
