Canada will no longer accept irregular migrants trying to cross the shared border with the United States and will instead return them to U.S. authorities, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday.

Trudeau told reporters the measure was a temporary one to protect the health of Canadians during the coronavirus outbreak. Earlier this week officials had said those crossing the border would be put into quarantine.
