Two Toronto-area men are behind bars in Buffalo after being dramatically rescued from the Niagara River.
Both were riding Sea-Doos when they were knocked into the water after hitting strong currents.
One was rescued by a US tour boat, the other was washed ashore. They were taken into custody by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service and were charged with failure to report on landfall into the States.
They will attend a closed hearing before an immigration judge today. It's expected, they'll either be issued a removal order and deported back to Canada or the judge may dismiss the charges against them.So much for that the largest unprotected border claim at least on the south side.
"If a removal order is issued, the two will need to go through an extensive application process in order to return to the U.S."
Canada's department of foreign affairs has declined to comment.
