(National Sentinel) Illegal Immigration: Now that America has a president committed to enforcing immigration laws, thousands of people illegally in the U.S. are now jumping the Canadian border, which is causing no small amount of angst to our northern neighbor who once chastisedÂ us for treating our illegal immigrants in aÂ “mean” and “bigoted” manner.
My, how attitudes change when the situation changes; now that Canada has an illegal immigration problem, their far-Left darling of a prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has issued a warning: Jumping the northern border illegally won’t speed up the asylum-seeking process.
As reported byÂ CBC:
Prime Minister JustinÂ TrudeauÂ has a message for asylum seekers: crossing illegally into the country doesn’t offer an advantage when it comes to obtaining refugee status in Canada.
“If I could directly speak to people seeking asylum, I’d like to remind them there’s no advantage,”Â TrudeauÂ saidÂ at a news conference Sunday in Montreal.Â “Our rules, our principles and our laws apply to everyone.”
In the first two weeks of August, more than 3,800 people walked over the border into the province,Â compared toÂ the 2,996 who crossedÂ throughout all of July.
Speaking prior to Montreal’s Pride Parade, TrudeauÂ stressed that anyone seeking refugee status will have to go through Canada’s “rigorous” screening process.
He saidÂ the government is managingÂ the unprecedented flow of predominantly Haitian asylum seekers and that all of them will be subjected to the usual security checks and evaluationsÂ before obtaining refugee status in Canada.
Unlike in the United States, Haitians have no special status in Canada. About half of Haitians seeking refugee status in Canada have been denied in the last couple of years.
Wait,Â what?Â Denied?
Generally speaking, no; Canadians are pretty tolerant (as areÂ most Americans, contrary to how we’re portrayed to the world by our own disgustingly dishonest “mainstream” media). But like Americans,Â they too expect non-citizens toÂ obey their laws when it comes to immigration, seeking refugee status and so forth.
Like Americans, Canadians don’t just want anyone and everyone sneaking into their country; like us, they want to knowÂ who’s coming in, why, and whether or not they are going to be a problem.
Canadian conservatives, meanwhile, saw this coming.Â In January, Trudeau the Leftie tweeted: “To those fleeing persecution, terror andÂ war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength.”
“They knew it was going to be a problem this summer. And their response has been building tent cities on the U.S./Canada border,”Â immigration critic Michelle Rempel toldÂ CBC News.
Obama essentially did the same thing during his final term, when he unconstitutionally changed immigration law via executive order to instruct border security officials to stop focusing on younger illegal aliens; they flowed into the U.S. by the tens of thousands.
Countries have a right to set rules pertaining to who gets in and who doesn’t. It’s called “sovereignty.”
Canadians are re-learning this hard-and-fast rule of nation-states.
