On Monday, the US announced a 30-day agreement with both Canada and Mexico that includes immediately returning any illegal migrants to the countries from which they arrived, or to their countries of origin if that isn't possible, rather than holding them at facilities in the U.S.

The official also stressed that the decision to deploy the troops had not been made.

During a now-daily press conference at Rideau Cottage in Ottawa this morning, Trudeau announced that the House of Commons passed the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), an aid package for those affected by COVID-19.

Trump is expected to send fewer than 1,000 troops to the Canadian border, two US government officials told Reuters.

Trudeau said it is in the best interests of both countries for the border to remain that way. "I'm glad to get the word out about these scammers because it's the last thing we need to be dealing with at this time".

Canada opposes a plan by the United States to send troops to its northern frontier to catch border jumpers who may be carrying COVID-19, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday.

An estimated 400,000 people and $2 billion worth of goods normally would cross the border each day.

"CPB can not however effectively maintain public health measures and national security requirements without additional support", the memo to U.S. Department of Defence executive secretary Capt. Oliver Lewis said.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"The only objective of that is to spread that message as widely as possible, reach as many people as possible, so they hear it loud and clear", said a member of Trudeau's team speaking on background.

Separately, one of the USA sources said several hundred more troops would also be deployed along the border with Mexico in addition to the ones already there. -Canada border has always been a point of pride.

Despite calls for cooperation, the G20 risks entanglement in an oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation and frictions between the United States and China over the origin of the coronavirus outbreak.
