Canada Changing Their Tune On Accepting Illegal Immigrants

My how times they are a-changing …

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, you may recall, responded to President Trump’s efforts to halt the influx of refugees and illegal immigrants into the United States by offering up his country as an alternative safe space.

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith,” Trudeau boasted. “Diversity is our strength.”

Trudeau and his administration are now whistling a vastly different tune.

After President Trump strengthened immigration laws even further recently, hundreds of thousands of El Salvadoran citizens were left wondering what would happen to them.

“The Department of Homeland Security has decided not to grant a full renewal of humanitarian protections to some 200,000 citizens of El Salvador who have been living in the U.S. since 2001,” the Washington Times reported.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen did grant them Temporary Protected Status for 18 months, allowing them time to sort out their immigration issues.

“Temporary Protected Status allows them to live and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation,” the report states. “Without it, most TPS holders would be illegal immigrants.”

Despite that 18-month grace period, Canada decided they’d better get on top of the situation immediately. Did they open their arms, their doors, and their borders to the citizens of El Salvador?

No, they essentially said don’t bother coming here!

“The government announced that it was planning to send Pablo Rodriguez, a Spanish-speaking member of Parliament, to California in the coming days to speak to community groups, lawyers and Spanish-language media,” the Washington Post reports. “His message is simple: If you don’t qualify for refugee or asylum status, don’t try to cross into Canada.

Well that doesn’t sound very welcoming, Mr. Trudeau.

Trudeau was actually outed as a world class hypocrite over his immigration remarks this past summer, when illegals began self-deporting to Canada because of President Trump’s tough immigration stance.

Suddenly, the man who wanted open borders in Canada discovered a little thing called ‘laws.’

“Canada is an opening and welcoming society, but let me be clear,” Trudeau said. “We are also a country of laws.”

Guess what – so is America. At least now we are after eight years of Obama’s penchant for lawlessness.

Is Trudeau a hypocrite for saying Trump should accept illegals, then refusing to accept them in Canada? Share your thoughts below!

  • Trudeau is a perfect example of who NOT to vote for as he doesn't think before he speaks and even when he does, he is so full of himself that it doesn't make any sense. He is the first PM in Canada who has broken federal laws and his cabinet won't allow questions. That's the Liberals for you. They don't think rules or laws apply to them.

  • illegal, means not in line with a current law. so, therefore, illegals are law breakers, and we don't want them here. we already have enough scum like that already, and do not need any more. if iy was up to me, half of this once great country, would be on boats back to where they came from. and please, let's not have some yahoo start on about we were all immigrants at one time. yep, we were, a couple hundred years ago. so what would be the point of yammering about this crap now. we are TODAY, dealing with possible rapists, murders, and child molesters from other countries, where that kind of thing is natural, to them. not here, not now, and damn well not ever.

  • It seems the current prime minister must have had some prompting from the opposition parties and the general public with regard to the immigration issues and changed his mind. The problem with democracy in Canada is there isn't any when comes to the leadership of the political parties when they hold majority status.

  • Well NWO idiot puppet Trudeau first you want them now you don’t. Frankly we’ll give you all our illegal immigrants & you can keep them! You’re a hypocrite!
