In a video posted by Vivek Ramaswamy on X, the Republican presidential candidate exposed the massive security flaws in the U.S.-Canada border where illegal immigrants can easily pass through without being stopped by border officials.
“This was *wild.* Right at the U.S. Northern Border port of entry, there are two signs. One says “Prepare to Stop.” The other one points to a “Hiking Trail,” Ramaswamy wrote on X.

Ramaswamy, meanwhile, is among the various Republican candidates attempting to breathe life into their presidential campaigns as Donald Trump continues to hold a commanding lead in the race for the nomination.
