Canadian Government Denounces Sharron Angle’s Ludicrous Border Claim
As mentioned recently on LGF, Nevada Tea Party crazy lady Sharron Angle, in her ridiculous speech to a Hispanic student union, claimed that the 9/11 hijackers came through the Canadian border — calling it “the most porous border we have.”
Leaving aside the sheer deceptive stupidity of trying to float this nonsense, while her campaign relentlessly demonizes undocumented immigrants from Mexico, Angle is now in hot water with the Canadian government: Ottawa tells tea-party backed candidate 9/11 hijackers didn’t come from Canada.
Ambassador Gary Doer has written to Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle, who last week referred to the U.S.-Canadian border as “the most porous border” the country has.
Angle, a tea party-backed candidate running a close race in Nevada against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, said “what we know is our northern border is where the terrorists came through.”
In his note to Angle on Monday, Doer emphasized that “none of the 9/11 hijackers entered the United States from or through Canada.”
He said extensive investigations by U.S. law enforcement authorities have established that all of the hijackers entered the U.S. directly from third countries – not Canada – with visas issued by U.S. diplomats.
Ambassador Doer ended the letter with this:
“I can assure you that Canada takes border security very seriously and trust you will see fit to set the record straight.”
Right. Good luck with that.
