History and Background

The border shared by the United States and Canada has long been more a symbol of political demarcation than a barrier. Since the westward exploration and expansion of the 18th century, a free and amicable social, cultural and economic exchange has characterized life along the northwestern border. The Peace Arch Monument, serving as a gateway at one of the northwest's busiest land border crossings, is a reflection of such a relationship. Constructed between 1919 and 1921, the Peace Arch Monument stands welcoming all who come before her, silently reminding us that we are all "Children of a Common Mother" and "Brethren Dwelling in Unity." However, changes in immigration legislation during the late 19th and early 20th centuries contributed to an increased exploitation of our Nation's laws. Increases in the smuggling of contraband and human cargo prompted the establishment of what has now become the Blaine Border Patrol Sector.
