Biden, Trudeau meet about border and China

U.S. President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were expected to announce a deal Friday afternoon to crack down on illegal crossings from the United States into Canada. The new deal would allow both countries to turn away asylum seekers at their borders, even at unofficial border crossing checkpoints.

Did the leaders talk about China? The two leaders discussed breaking away from the Chinese-controlled rare earth industry by building rare earth mining facilities in Canada. Trudeau told the Canadian Parliament on Friday that the U.S. and Canada needed to work together to build semiconductor chips in North America.
