The Canadian Border is getting a little bigger
The federal government is moving to build a wall along the Canada-U.S. border to keep out immigrants from Mexico and make it more difficult for people to sneak across.
The federal government will ask a federal court to grant a preliminary injunction that would stop the construction of the wall until it can meet the legal requirements of the U.S.-Mexico border.
The court also has the option of granting an injunction that could halt the wall for a year.
The judge will hear arguments on the case later this month.
The new plan to build the wall is part of the government’s “emergency plan” to protect Canadian communities from the effects of the influx of people from Mexico into Canada.
The border wall has been a contentious issue in recent months, as some Canadians and U.K. politicians have been critical of the plan to put a razor-wire fence along the border with the U to prevent people from entering the country.
The U.k. has also said it is opposed to the wall.
