Statement – Result

Reported in the Australian:

Statement:

On January 28 last year (2017), only days after Donald Trump was sworn in as US President, the Canadian Prime Minister tweeted: a deliberate shot at Trump’s hardline immigration policies by trumpeting how Canada had an open door for refugees.

“To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength. #welcometocanada,” he tweeted.

Result:

Last year Canada received a record 50,420 applications for asylum, more than double the 23,930 it received in 2016 and the highest level since the country’s Immigration and Refugee Board was created in 1989. Of these, almost 30,000 walked illegally across the border from the US into the province of Quebec — a situation Trudeau has been criticised for failing to deal with. In the first six months of this year, a further 10,261 crossed from New York state into Quebec.

Population of Canada – 36.3 million.

    What, no Cross-border Cleese police? Funny that.

    I fail to see why this is a problem. This is exactly what Trudeau offered.

    I also do not see why this is a problem just based on the numbers you quote.
    This immigration in one year added 0.13% to the population of Canada, on top of domestic annual growth averaging 1% per year. So the sheer numbers are not the problem.
    The fact that most of this occurred illegally instead of “through the front door” is almost certainly due to a lack of trust by immigrants in the generosity and efficiency of HM government in Canada, headed by one J.Trudeau. You don’t even have to go as far as xenophobia to see how this looks bad for the Canadian Liberal Party. They tried to import a new batch of faithful voters and not even those voters trust the current Liberal bureaucracy.

    This is the type of bad analysis that leads to terrible immigration policies.
    Consider the following: There are 15 million to 30 million illegals in the US.
    Most of them work. Most of them have ID’s.
    There are many “Sanctuary” cities and towns that protect these illegals.

    So who do you suppose would walk across the border into a country with less jobs on offer and with a terrible climate?
    Would it be reasonable to presume that many of those who did flee the US when Trump got into office were people with criminal records, explaining why they didn’t “trust” the Trudeau government?

    I could understand this if they turned up in the USA. I was thinking about it myself as a political refugee, “I voted Lieboral but they just turn out to be big government, higher taxing socialists. I am being persecuted and have no alternative but to flee.”
