EMERSON – A town council meeting is set for today in Emerson after a rise in the number of people illegally crossing the border into Manitoba.
Last weekend, around two dozen refugees illegally crossed the Canada-US border near Emerson.
Out of the 100 calls Emerson fire fighters received in the past 12 months, more than 20 per cent were related to refugees.
Today the town council meeting will discuss what to do moving forward.
We’ll have reaction this afternoon on 680 CJOB.
