7 People Got Busted For Trying To Sneak Into The US From Canada Via A Library Lawn (VIDEO)

It's not hard to see why the eye-catching effort didn't pay off.

Attempted US-Canada Border Crossing Via A Library Ends In Expulsion (VIDEO)

A cross-border social gathering on July 4 was interrupted by a not-so-sneaky attempt to cross the Canada-U.S. border on July 4, according to U.S. officials.

In footage released by a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol official, a group of gatherers can be seen socializing on the border when a car behind them stops driving on the road and cuts onto the lawn of a library.

From another camera angle, the car can be seen driving over the grass on the other side, almost colliding with another car as it careens back onto the street in American territory.

The tricky tactics didn't pay off, however, as the Border Patrol reported that the car was stopped on a nearby highway and all seven occupants — a mixture of French, Romanian and Canadian citizens — were returned back to Canada.

The Canada-U.S. land border is still firmly closed shut and will be until at least July 21, according to the latest announcement. No exemptions for travelling via library lawns have yet been made by either government.
