It turns out that Canada is not as friendly as they claim to be. Our neighbors to the North are expressing concern with how many immigrants are flocking to Canada. The Prime Minister of Canada has openly criticized President Trump’s immigrants’ policies, but the citizens of Canada have more in common with President Trump than we thought. It turns out not every Canadian is like their Prime Minister, holding their arms open for immigrants.
Reuters reports that Canadians are not happy with illegal immigrants entering their country:
Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.
A significant minority, four out of 10 respondents, 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.
There has been broad bipartisan support for high levels of legal immigration for decades in Canada. But Trudeau has come under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants. He is questioned about it every time he appears in parliament, from opponents on the left, who want more asylum-seekers to be allowed in, and critics on the right, who say the migrants pose a potential security risk.
Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as their American neighbors, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9. Some 48 percent of Canadians said they supported “increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally.”
Your eyes do not deceive you; you read that correctly. Canadians are just like American’s; they are concerned about illegal immigration and what it can and will do to their beloved country.
Illegals are rushing to Canada after President Trump announced his “immigration crackdown,” but many Canadians are finding out that asylum for immigrants is a great theory, but unbearable in reality.
Canada has always been seen as a fun-loving, welcoming-to-all kind of country, but with the pressure of Illegal Immigrants causing trouble, it seems Canada is changing their attitude.
