Default 'A Country of Laws': Canada's Trudeau Sounds Alarm About Illegal Immigrants

Quote:
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is sounding the alarm on the growing flood of immigrants entering Canada.

"Canada is an opening and welcoming society, but let me be clear. We are also a country of laws," Trudeau said in remarks after a meeting in Montreal with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

"Entering Canada irregularly is not an advantage," the prime minister doubled down. "There are rigorous immigration and customs rules that will be followed. Make no mistake."

Illegal border crossings to Canada spiked in July, reaching more than triple June's 884 crossings. Most immigrants enter through Quebec.

President Trump in January put a hold on refugees to the United States and barred travelers from several countries infected with terrorism. In the wake of the president's move, Trudeau offered assistance and asylum to refugees.

"To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith," The prime minister tweeted. "Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada."

Now, however, the prime minister is concerned about the growing number of mostly Haitian illegal immigrants leaving the U.S. in response to Trump's tough immigration policies.

"Our rules, our principles and our laws apply to everyone," Trudeau warned.

Media blackout on coverage of Trudeau's change of tone. Shocking, cause why would we want to paint him as a racist asshole when the media proclaimed him the anti-Trump just a few weeks ago. Not only that...

Quote:
Enforcement is enforcement, however, and no progressive message of inclusion could save Trudeau from having to uphold his country’s laws. He informed the refugees on Sunday that they would be expected to go through the country’s “rigorous” screening process, reminding them that illegal crossing doesn’t allow them to circumvent existing laws.

This shouldn’t surprise. Canada’s process is one of the most rigorous in the world. Refugees aside, those who wish to immigrate to Canada must contend with a merit-based system similar to the one Trump proposed earlier this month. Skilled labor, points for French- and English-language proficiency, and high levels of education are all pre-requisites. As Trudeau is discovering, tone does not an immigration policy make.

Canada had already implemented the same merit system Trump was demonized for.

Oh how that media spin keeps spinning.

Good. Who the fuck wants the problems that illegal immigration can bring. The right policy is to be welcoming to immigrants - that are here LEGALLY. It's not a human right to move to any country that you want.

Didn't he ban all adult heterosexual males from Muslim countries from coming into Canada? If Trump had done that, all you would hear is, "Racist! Racist!".

It's true. I don't know if that's changed but it was for the initial wave of 25k refugees we resettled, I think it was very early on when shit was going down in Syria back in in 2015. We're a very small country in terms of population and that's a massive number and you can't vet that shit properly. It was the right play.

Amen.

Trudeau is being pretty reasonable. Now he'll be expected to follow through.

If you have kept up with the news on how Canada has dealt with the surge of illegal immigration since Trump's election, you'd know that they have not given them an inch. Asylum seekers who have already applied in US or were rejected will never even get their case heard in Canadian courts, most of these illegals fall into this category.

Don't like Trudeau, but glad there is some common sense in his head...
