entering Canada The group squeezed uncuffed into a police minivan and headed to a government office for questioning"We feel sorry for the people" said retired grain farmer Ken Schwark "I just wish they would come through the legal way"A 2004 agreement between Canada and the United States means asylum seekers must submit applications in the United States if they arrive there first But if they find a way into Canada they can apply for refugee status thereIt’s an avenue that has spurred north illegal migrants in the United States especially Somalis settled in Minnesota which shares a land border with Manitoba After pricey taxi rides to North Dakota many like Ismail walk for hours in darkness and -4°F temperatures to dimly lit Emerson in the shadow of the bright glare of the international border crossingThe lucky migrants get rides dropping them off less than a mile from Noyes Minnesota within sight of Emerson’s southern edge From there they duck under a metal

marked in most areas only by scattered concrete boundary markersFaye Suderman a four-decade Emerson resident said she is sympathetic but draws a line between those fleeing persecution and those who have simply run out of chances in the United States: "How difficult is it to get rid of those people and give help to those truly in need"Emerson Cafe manager Jacquelyn Reimer who has fed shivering asylum seekers for free wondered why the Canadian government is helping refugees when the country has its own homeless problem "We can’t even take care of our own" she saidMakeshift beds Nutella sandwichesDue to its border-hugging location Emerson’s encounters with migrants are not new but the scale of their arrivals isIn the first two months of 2017 143 mainly Somali people walked illegally over the border into Emerson representing 40 percent of Manitoba’s full-year total in 2015/16 Quebec and British Columbia are the two other major illegal crossing points but police there refused to provide dataEmerson residents don’t encounter the migrants for long before police arrive and whisk them to the local Canada Border Services Agency office for questioning From there they are ferried to Winnipeg Manitoba’s capital to file asylum claimsDespite some residents’ fears asylum-seekers have not caused any trouble said Bill Spanjer Emerson’s emergency coordinator"They’re going to be on their best behavior because otherwise their refugee claim is certainly going to be affected" he saidWhen police receive a call they summon the town’s volunteer firefighters to treat any health concerns as the nearest ambulance is 25 minutes away In December two men from Ghana lost all of their fingers to frostbiteFirefighter callouts cost Emerson about C$500 each time The costs may add up to C$30000 since last spring representing 10 percent of its firefighting budget said Emerson-Franklin’s elected leader Greg Janzen The provincial government directed more resources to Emerson last week including paramedics and paralegal and transportation servicesSince the influx sped up in January the strain on Emerson has grown In early February police intercepted 18 migrants from Somalia and Djibouti and CBSA asked Emerson to temporarily house them in the town’s ice rinkBrenda Piett and other volunteers laid folding banquet tables on the concrete floor and layered them with blankets for makeshift mattresses At the migrants’ request they served white bread sandwiches with Nutella hazelnut spread"The groups are getting bigger and the stories are scary how far they’ve walked" said Piett an inventory clerk at Emerson’s duty-free store "But it does affect our town Some people are very scared of it"The recommendations call for a statewide natural resource plan and urge larger-scale land use planning when regulators approve oil development with the goal of minimizing impacts and using existing infrastructure to the extent possible"The priorities are trying to preserve the natural beauty of the Badlands" said Daryl Dukart a rancher and county commissioner in Dunn County "The goal is to use the smallest possible footprint that we can"The plan drafted by a group of Badlands residents that represents ranchers local government the oil industry conservation and legislators began last year with an assessment that came from a year of stakeholder interviewsThe advisory group is calling for a long-term strategic plan for developing North Dakota’s natural resources It also encourages key regulators including the North Dakota Industrial Commission and the Department of Mineral Resources to perform larger landscape planning "to promote the smallest possible infrastructure footprint"During the boom years in the Bakken oil formation as oil companies scrambled to drill wells they sometimes built two roads in an area where one road would suffice for instance said Rod Backman a consultant who helped administer the advisory group which was supported by the World Wildlife Fund and the Bush FoundationA key concern of landowners is minimal disruption to their land from oil wells pipelines roads and other infrastructure Dukart saidHis Dunn County ranch located east of Dunn Center has seen disruption from oil wells and pipelines Since the oil boom took off around 2004 to 2006 practices have improved because of better regulations and input from landowners he said"I’ve seen full disturbance of right of ways" he saidOn the other hand the rights of ways needed for pipelines have been reduced to the width of the pipeline significantly less than the 50- to 70-foot corridor once standard Dukart said"We’re seeing some good results from that" he added "We’re saying use the minimal disturbance that you can"Gov Doug Burgum legislative leaders and the head of the Department of Mineral Resources have been briefed on the recommendations Backman said "So we’ve started the process of getting the ideas out there" The group likely will ask to present its recommendations to the Industrial Commission which oversees oil and gas development"I hope it’s received well" Backman said adding last year’s assessment found a favorable reception He said the plan strived to be "common sense achievable and saleable to policymakers and the industry"A strategic natural resources plan would help protect the landscape from the intensive oil development expected to occur in the coming years with many predicting the state will see another 30000 to 40000 oil wells he said"I think to do it would probably involve a lot of people" Backman said pointing to the Empower North Dakota group that came up with energy development plans as an exampleSome work already has been done he added including local zoning regulations compiled by Visions West a local government initiative in western North Dakota To test steps the group recommends a pilot project area It also encourages a wildlife habitat improvement programThe state must preserve important areas including the Killdeer Mountains and Badlands including Theodore Roosevelt National Park and nearby national grasslands without restricting energy development Dukart saidIn the rugged Badlands topsoil depths can average 1 inches and take many years to restore if disturbed"It’s a very delicate balance" he saidThe Badlands Advisory Group’s recommendations can be found online at wwwNDStakeholdersorg
