Trudeau’s Mexican visa reversal puts “optics” ahead of Canada’s security and balance sheet

Candice MalcolmRebel Contributor

Justin Trudeau proudly told Canadians that his government will remove the visa requirement for Mexican visitors coming to Canada. Mexican president Enrique Pena-Nieto is in town, and Trudeau wanted to impress his counterpart and make some headlines in the process. 

So, starting in 2017, anyone from Mexico will be able to hop on a plane and come to Canada whenever they want, without any prior checks or screening.

So what’s the big deal?

Watch as I enumerate the benefits those making claims can receive even if a Canadian judge ultimately finds the claim false.

The whole asylum scheme costs Canadian taxpayer billions of dollars each and every year.

In 2008, 89% of cases were bogus.

So, in 2009, the Harper government imposed a visa on Mexican visitors and the policy worked as planned. The number of asylum claims from Mexico fell sharply, and the Mexicans who did claim asylum in Canada were much more likely to be bona fide refugees.

Nothing about this new policy makes sense, except that it makes Trudeau himself look good on the world stage.

When it comes to appeasing world leaders, and putting optics and feel-good politics ahead of the safety and security of Canada, well, that’s Trudeau’s specialty.

Candice, you already said all of this on the Andrew Lawton show earlier this week.

In other words the Mexicans who need to come here for honest work and other legitimate reasons will be sent back while criminals are happily approved.

It’s interesting that the short Rebel You Tube video of Trudeau and the president of Mexico jogging to " She wears short shorts" is suddenly unavailable to view. Is this censorship by Google again or someone controlling what we can access.

What optics.

CUCK Trudeau is a fucking asshole, pure and simple.

I guess he is just trying to out do Obama. That is quite an aspiration when you are only Obama’s hand puppet.

Another reason Justin is removing the visa requirements for Mexicans is that desperate need to undo everything Stephen Harper did in the last 9 years, and he doesn’t care if it’s bad for Canada. Has anyone looked at our PM’s personal finances? There’s got to be some sort of a payback from somewhere for all the things he is doing to harm this country.
