Native First Nations Position on US/Canada Border Security

Here is the statement position from the Native First Nations leaders in Canada on US/Canada border security;

"The Canada-U.S. border is not the creation of the First Peoples of this land. Historically, our people moved freely throughout our territory and across what is now the border. We recognize that border security is a key concern for all North Americans, and [we must] address those concerns while ensuring that the rights of First Nations on both sides of the border are respected and protected." Phil Fontaine, Assembly of First Nations National Chief

I guess if would be up to the border officials on how to accomplish this.
