On Wednesday morning, with less than two weeks remaining in the federal campaign, Andrew Scheer worried aloud about MS-13, the notorious Salvadoran-American criminal gang.

The Conservative leader stood near Roxham Road in southern Quebec, where asylum seekers crossing from the United States have forced the federal government to establish an unofficial border crossing. As Scheer spoke, opinion polls and seat projections showed his party trailing the Liberal Party nationally and losing ground to the Bloc Quebecois in Quebec.

It was against that backdrop that Scheer turned his attention to "illegal border crossers" and the immigration system — and the fear that violent gang members might be entering the country.
