A new poll confirms Canadians see a real security risk at the border, and it doesn’t matter how many stories the media and political elites trot out portraying those crossing the Canada-US border illegally as people escaping the nastiness of Donald Trump.
They’re also pushing out media story after media story suggesting anyone that wants to crack down on illegal border crossings is some kind of racist, anti-immigrant xenophobe.
Despite all of this, Canadians do see a risk at the border and want more resources going to securing the border than helping those fleeing America claiming to be refugees.
Watch as I share the latest poll from the Angus Reid Institute surveying 1,511 adult Canadians between March 13 and 17 on a variety of questions surrounding this issue.
The results will surprise many, but consider news of the Sweden attack just last week that killed four and injured several more which police now believe was carried out by a failed asylum seeker.
Or the Berlin Christmas Market attack. The man that drove the truck that killed 11 pedestrians was a failed asylum seeker from Tunisia.
There are more but let’s just look at the most recent - the bomb scare in Norway. A bomb was placed near a busy subway system but was defused before it could go off. The culprit was a 17 year-old asylum seeker.
When Trudeau began his refugee push, I called for tough vetting of anyone wanting to come here from Syria, an area filled with real refugees fleeing war but also war lords and war criminals fleeing persecution. There are terrorists and terrorist sympathizers everywhere.
Time will tell if the tough vetting we did was enough but I hope so for all of our sakes.
For months now, we’ve been seeing people just walking across the border and Canadians are not ok with this. Rightly, they see this as a security risk.
Pundits, political and media establishment will not like the results of this poll and may be shocked, but I’m not.
Canadians support a generous immigration and refugee system if it follows Canadian rules and Canadian laws, doesn’t allow queue jumping and if Canada’s security is protected.
None of those conditions are met right now with this influx of illegal immigrants crossing the border at non-border crossings and just yelling refugee. I’m sorry, the US is not creating refugees, it accepts them, even under Donald Trump.
The government needs to act on this and toughen up border security - even the majority of their voters and left wing NDP voters agree with that.
If you agree with that assessment and you have not yet signed our petition at www.NoIllegals.ca, then I encourage you to do so.
Activists want less border security and are pressuring the government to do less, not more but if you stand with the majority of Canadians and for common sense then please sign the petition at www.NoIllegals.ca - sign now.
