Jessica Corbett, staff writer

Canada's military has troops assembling heated tents that will be capable of temporarily housing up to 500 asylum seekers who continue crossing into the country where it borders New York State.

Land of the Free…not under the watch of the demonc despot who calls himself prez-a-dunce. What a very sad commentary on the current state of our nation under his and his henchmen’s tyranny.

Possibly soon, many Americans may be seeking asylum in both Canada and Mexico. Better hurry before The Orange Mussolini decides a Northern wall is necessary to keep the populace in. Shades of The Berlin Wall.:no_pedestrians:

I had immigration to Canada before I did the US.
Should have kept it.
Regrets and woes. …


#6

Making America grate again. Haven’t grated my teeth so much since the 1980s.


#7

It’s been tried. Canada is currently are refusing applicants for refugee status from US citizens.

Trump’s base eats this up. Self-deportation is really a thing.

Sure hope ‘it’s her turn’ again 2020.

Then we can officially stick a fork in the D-party and mount a bold political assault from the left flank.

Perhaps you are not familiar with the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010:
220,000-316,000: estimates of the death toll vary

300,000: number of injured

1.5 million: people initially displaced

(google Haiti Earthquake on CNN for more info)
In order to help the Haitians in 2010, President Obama allowed them to emigrate to the US without visas.

In 2016, after a six-year moratorium on deportations to Haiti, President Obama resumed those deportations as living/housing conditions in Haiti dramatically improved. Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/world/americas/haiti/article103373227.html

In any case, these are living, breathing human beings, after all.

The tragedy and poverty of Haiti both man-and nature-caused goes way beyond “Bill and Hill”. But at any rate, the issue is that Haitians should be welcome here as refugees and not forced to flee the US…


#12

The good old Singh decision. Wait until more find out about it. All “asylum seekers” from the US are gonna swarm the Canadian border.


#13

Also, the forgotten, totally devastating Hurricane Matthew last year. (And this seemingly “forgotten” article today about it):

And yes, Haiti was a social-economic-political catastrophe long before the Clintons…

They approved you once, you might still get enough points. Go for it…

If you haven’t read or watched The Handmaid’s Tale yet, it may be time to do so.


#18

Moving video on this - right where it is happening.

Hundreds per day ?

Serious business.


#19

Looks to me as though Canada was their second choice, even though they speak French and Canada has a French speaking province. Second choice doesn’t cut it. Send them back to Haiti!


#20

Wonder if I can renounce my US citizenship in order to get in?

It’s going to cast you:
