I admit, when I read this headline my immediate thought was to wonder if brokenhearted hipsters from Brooklyn and Portland had just been border-hopping into Canada this whole time. You know, since the strict immigration requirements Canada has in place seemed to have dashed the left’s backup plan for escaping Donald Trump’s America.
According to this, a new poll shows that 48% of Canadians want illegal immigrants to be deported and that the presence of these illegals is making their country “less safe.” Also, they aren’t terribly pleased with how Prime Minister Justin
Bieber Trudeau is handling the situation –
Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, an opinion polls shows.
A similar number also disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to the Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.
About 41 per cent of those polled said the border crossers could make Canada ‘less safe’, underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau’s Liberal government.
The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months has become a contentious issue in Canada.
I find it fascinating that the illegal immigrants that Canadians object to are the ones from Africa and the Middle East. Don’t they know how RAAAAAAACIST that sounds? HOW DARE they put the safety and security of their own country above the FEEEEEEEEELINGS of people from a part of the world where terrorism runs rampant and nobody in the West seems to care about separating the legitimate victims from the guys who want to kill us all. What a bunch of bigots!
All joking and snark aside, this actually gives me hope. If the left’s beloved Canada can take their own border security seriously and want their government to do something about it, anything is possible.
