So will Canada change the status of the USA to 'unsafe' therefore allowing easier access to Canada from the USA? 

 

No.


I may live badly but at least I don't have to work to do it.

I see a possible WALL being proposed between the U.S. and Canada to help stem the tide.  So, who's gonna pay for THAT?

 

Why? Are proposals that costly?

I'm also trying to find out,  but last I read they were let in and it looks like they will be able to stay.    The CNN article I read said that only a handful had come over but there was a concern that once it gets warmers more will come as well as non refugees like Mexican migrants.    What Canada will do then, if that occurs, will be interesting. 

 

As you know Canada has a very controlled immigration process.    Since it is controlled it allows Canada to welcome more refugees but Mexican migrants are not refugees.

 

Here in the USA illegal immigrants (which are mostly just migrant workers) are stealing the spots that should be reserved for actual refugees. 

 

Ontario farmers have relied on Mexican migrant workers for many years.  How they get here, I'm not sure.  Probably flights.  As for the Somali refugees I would say that if they can be back checked they should be most welcomed.  Think about the fortitude it must have taken to make it from Africa all the way to snowbound Manitoba!  Lots more guts and determination than most of us who just sit around our computers and whine about the global state of affairs.

Have you heard or read of the Canadians sending the Somali refugees back to the United States?  I'm asking as I don't know.

The real story is that Canada requires refugees to fill out paperwork in the first 'safe' country they arrive in and currently the USA is deemed a safe country and therefore without the paperwork (which requires them to work with US officials),  they are denied access.

 

So will Canada change the status of the USA to 'unsafe' therefore allowing easier access to Canada from the USA?   They should if they really welcome these immigrants as much as some here claim they do.

Last night while watching an episode of SCHITT'S CREEK on CBC, in a commercial break there was a blurb for THE NATIONAL  mentioning a story about how Canada is the new destination for migrant workers from Mexico due to a "more welcoming attitute" in the nation.

 

That's how all this illegal immigrant brou-ha gets strarted.  So I see a possible WALL being proposed between the U.S. and Canada to help stem the tide.  So, who's gonna pay for THAT?

Getting from Mexico to Canada should be easy in the future, just walk the Dakota pipeline. :lol:
