- A U.S.-Canada wall would save immigration agents from having to arrest 822 Canadians (compared to 424,978 Mexicans) -- presuming all were arrested after crossing the border.
- Border agents in Spokane, Wash., wouldn't have had to arrest 299 people (compared to the 11,154 people border agents in El Paso, Tex., arrested).
- The U.S. possibly wouldn't have to deport all 793 Canadians that it did in 2013 (a wall wouldn't have stopped everyone -- some presumably came over legally before running afoul of immigration laws and being deported.) By comparison, 314,904 Mexicans were deported.
- It might have stopped many of the 376 Canadians who had a criminal record when they were deported from coming into the country, assuming some of those Canadians crossed the border illegally. (For comparison, 146,298 Mexicans with a criminal record were deported.)
