Canadian border issues

The U.S. State Department is being asked to mediate a dispute between Mohawks and the Canadian government.

Mohawks in the United States and Canada oppose the arming of guards on the Canadian side of the border. Protests led Canada’s Customs and Border Service Agency to abandon the crossing station, resulting in the closure of the Seaway International Bridge.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York) want Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to resolve the issue. They also say the Department of Homeland Security should get involved.
