Illegal immigrants are just walking right into Canada. From Mexico. How is that happening? Because, as you know, Mexico does not in fact share a border with Canada.
Well, that’s the amazing thing. They walked across the Mexico-U.S. border. Illegally.
They’ve been in the U.S. for months, maybe years — and then Donald Trump was elected.
According to the Vancouver Province:
"Between April of last year and Feb. 15, Vancouver’s Welcome Centre dealt with 1,140 refugee claimants, compared to 801 in the 2015-2016 fiscal year. About 80 per cent of those came here by crossing through Peace Arch Park or nearby, avoiding the controlled border crossings where they would be refused entry.”
(Can you really call yourself a reporter if you deem such people “refugees”?)
We’ve shown you the Somalis taking a cab from Minneapolis to the Manitoba border, and just walking across. Sometimes the RCMP greet them, like luggage bellhops.
And Trudeau has, bizarrely, lifted the visa requirements for people to come here from Mexico.
But even if we still had them in place, it doesn’t matter, if illegals just walk across the border anyway.
How many will come? How many is too many?
The only reasonable, logical, moral answer is that we will take no-one illegally.
And if you’re coming from the U.S., you are not a refugee...
