Why is american illegal community in the millions compared to Canada?
You would think that in 2014 the American border patrol would develop more productive ways to actually guard their borders from potentially illegal entrance from people. But since they have approximately 11.3 million since 2013 of illegals... This just seems ridiculous. Are they just not good as Canada? There are obviously many illegals in Canada considering how I know a few and have reported them.

Canada has a different system. Every adult Canadian must have a Social Insurance Number. You need it to get a job, apply for college, open a bank account, get a Medicaire Card, apply for a driver's license and to apply for any social service. That makes it very hard to live here illegally without a Social Insurance Number.
Some people do manage by over staying a legal visit and living off odd jobs or sharing an SIN. Most leave when they realize they are never going to achieve a decent standard of living here and when they are caught, they are deported.

American society is structured differently from Canada and holds different values than Canada does.
Why are you obsessing over something that's not a major issue in Canada and never was?
Because there's actually few illegals in Canada when compared with other nations, especially the USA.

The CBSA is actually quite efficient and gets help from other law enforcement agencies when they come into contact with illegal residents through traffic stops, etc. The Vancouver transit police actually get quite a few when they ticket people for riding on the skytrain without a ticket. In the US, law enforcement tends to be quite focused on what they see as their own jurisdiction I think.

They did not manage it in the 1600s so why now?
