Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Blames Canada’s Illegal Immigration Woes On The United States

Published

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is blaming President Donald Trump and the United States’ stricter policies on immigration for Canada’s burgeoning “immigration crisis,” even though Trudeau himself told migrants he’d welcome them with “open arms.”

In an interview with GlobalNews.ca, Trudeau absolved himself of all responsibility over the influx of illegal immigrants who’ve made their way into Canada through the United States, claiming instead that the United States has failed to welcome migrants with open arms, thus sending them packing for Canada.

Back in 2017, Trudeau famously tweeted, in response to President Trump’s call to heavily restrict immigration to the United States, that Canada would continue to be a destination for the world’s downtrodden, even if the U.S. wasn’t interested.

“Your tweet saying ‘welcome to Canada’ is often cited as the reason why these people are pouring across the border. Do you ever regret that tweet?” the interviewer asked Trudeau.

“No,” Trudeau answered, adding, “If people are in the midst of migration around the world right now, it’s not because of a tweet restating — almost word for word — Canadian policy on refugees, because that’s exactly what it was.”

“And certainly, if people are fleeing the United States right now and are choosing to leave the United States right now, it’s not something I said,” Trudeau continued. “It is perhaps domestic realities within the political context in the United States that is driving people to move or to make those certain decisions.”

In other words, it’s all Donald Trump’s fault.

But while it’s no secret that U.S. immigration policy has become more restrictive, certainly Trudeau’s policy of welcoming immigrants with open arms isn’t helping. According to CIC news, which tracks immigration to Canada, “international migration reached a record level in the third quarter of 2018,” bypassing records set each previous quarter. Population growth has exploded in Canada, largely because of immigration.

The situation has gotten so bad that Canada is now actively encouraging migrants not to cross into their country outside of legal border checkpoints, and cautioning potential immigrants to Canada that the road to Canadian citizenship isn’t easy. Asylum seekers are allowed to remain in-country while their claims are being processed, but Canada only accepts a fraction of asylum claims.

To emigrate to Canada legally, potential Canadians must prove they will provide a value to their new home country — a process that might take more than a decade.

Worse still, the influx of immigration to Canada has cost the country dearly. The Canadian government spends approximately $14,000 per illegal immigrant, Canadian state media reports.

“Parliamentary Budget Officer Yves Giroux said the total cost for the asylum claims process was about $340 million in 2017-2018 and is expected to rise to $396 million in 2019-2020,” the CBC continued.

Canadians are fed up. As “yellow vest” protests rage in Europe, they’ve begun popping up in Canada, “criticizing the tax and immigration policies of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government,” CTV News reported last weekend. “In many cities, last week’s signing of the UN’s Global Compact for Migration in Morocco is what drove their anger. Canada was among the 164 nations that signed on. The United States was not.”

But Trudeau insists he isn’t to blame.

    Trudeau can whine all he wants. If the illegal aliens cross the USA border, he can expect them in Canada. Talk to Mexico to stop the border crossing.
