He’s entitled to his terminology. I do not support it, but I also did not edit it out of the quote.

“They knew the US had Trump as the big scary guy who they were so supposedly afraid of. IF they were afraid of him why did they go to the US? Because they were not afraid of him. More Leftie BS. "

Why didn’t they stay in the US? The peak of their flight was in 2017. How many of them actually set foot in the US before Trump was elected?

“That is when the Leftist media put the fear into them that TRUmp was going to put hem all in concentration camps etc. Then Trudeau opened his vacuous pie hole and invited them here.”

The Trudeau tweet was Jan 28. 2017. The refugees surge started in July 2017, five months later (this is evident in your own June 2017 number, which is a fraction of the numbers later that summer). I’m guessing something else happened in the interim to tip it off. If it’s not Trump’s policy, what was it? Or are you seriously going to tell me that they only noticed a tweet from January, in July?

“And The Groper has taken no action to stop the flow of ILLEGAL immigrants. "

What action should he take?

Andrew, you didn’t answer this:
“They’re fake refugees or “rat” refugees as Sheldon called them. Once again you are conflating the two terms in order to mislead people. Sheldon intentionally put the qualifier “rat” in front of refugee and then you removed it.

Why do you want to mislead people? Why do you want to be mislead?"

“The number of “RCMP interceptions” refers to asylum seekers apprehended between the ports of entry and does not reflect other border crossings. These numbers may be included in either CBSA or IRCC processing results as the asylum seekers are turned over by the RCMP to these agencies if a claim of refugee status is made.”

I don’t believe it’s Somalia that lies on the other side of Roxham Rd, or at the land crossings where most claimants are presenting.

No kidding Sherlock. Where did I say it was? I said you are claiming they are refugees. They LEFT Somalia and WENT TO the US. They knew the US had Trump as the big scary guy who they were so supposedly afraid of. IF they were afraid of him why did they go to the US? Because they were not afraid of him. More Leftie BS.

Under international treaty, the country they land in is the one they’re supposed to claim refugee status in. Why are they not applying to the US, as they’re supposed to? What happened in mid-2017 to change that?
-—————————-
Geez you are desperately seeking to believe and promulgate lies. Not surprising coming for one who believes babies are parasites, but I digress.

They did claim refugee status in the US or they would have been sent back, But what happened in 2017 . You can’t be serious. That is when the Leftist media put the fear into them that TRUmp was going to put hem all in concentration camps etc. Then Trudeau opened his vacuous pie hole and invited them here.


Within weeks they were pouring over the border.

So they do an illegal end run around the border crossings to avoid being turned away from Canada’s gravy train. And The Groper has taken no action to stop the flow of ILLEGAL immigrants.

So, why would he not stop the flow? Because he is importing undocumented Liberals.

“Another lie to deal with is that refugees come from the US. Those coming from the US are not refugees. So let’s get this straight- they left Somalia to go the the US where the evil Trump rule’

I don’t believe it’s Somalia that lies on the other side of Roxham Rd, or at the land crossings where most claimants are presenting.

Under international treaty, the country they land in is the one they’re supposed to claim refugee status in. Why are they not applying to the US, as they’re supposed to? What happened in mid-2017 to change that? Possibly some sort of travel ban from certain countries was finally enacted at the end of June? Within weeks they were pouring over the border.

“In the first six months of 2019, 26,860 people entered Canada illegally or under false pretenses to make asylum claims. That number is higher than the first half of 2018, when Canada received 25,225 claims, and the first half of 2017 when 18,445 claims were filed. It’s more than the total number of claims in 2016: 23,87”

The 26,000 is the number processed, not the number of new claimants or irregular crossers intercepted. . There is a substantial backlog of unprocessed claimants (several tens of thousands, about 30,900) which they are now clearing by expanding processing capabilities.

There were 20.900 interceptions in 2017 (4375 first half), 19419 interceptions (12378 first half) in 2018, and 6707 interceptions first half 2019, half of what it was last year and only a bit higher than 2017. (the crosser crisis started in July 2017, 884 in June, 3100 in July, 5700 in August. That summer spike has not been evident since).

In terms of claimants at ports of entry, that’s down as well. 2018 first half saw 12,800 claimants at all ports of entry, whereas 2019 had 11,800 in the same time period.

Overall, that means the total has dropped from about 24,000 to 18,000 in first half 2018-2019. The peak (half-year) for irregulars being intercepted was in second half 2017, when they caught 16,200 – they seem to have shifted to presenting at official crossings over the next year. There are still a lot but the worst has passed. In the second half of 2017, 3/4 crossed illegally. IN first half 2019, 2/3 presented at border crossings. Quite a change.

A lot of that is simply because they’re no longer afraid of Trump.

And why would that be? Because all the leftist hype was——wait for it—- a lie?
Why do leftists want to believe and promulgate lies?

Refugee claims are lower than they’ve been in years. A lot of that is simply because they’re no longer afraid of Trump.

Fake refugee numbers have skyrocketed since The Groper opened his vacuous pie hole.

“In the first six months of 2019, 26,860 people entered Canada illegally or under false pretenses to make asylum claims. That number is higher than the first half of 2018, when Canada received 25,225 claims, and the first half of 2017 when 18,445 claims were filed. It’s more than the total number of claims in 2016: 23,870.

In other words, Canada is on track to have more asylum seekers this year than any of the past four years."

Another lie to deal with is that refugees come from the US. Those coming from the US are not refugees. So let’s get this straight- they left Somalia to go the the US where the evil Trump rules? (Like leaving Nazi Germany to go to Stalinist Russia.) And then claim refugee status from the US “oppression” that never was?

They’re fake refugees or “rat” refugees as Sheldon called them. Once again you are conflating the two terms in order to mislead people. Sheldon intentionally put the qualifier “rat” in front of refugee and then you removed it.

Why do you want to mislead people? Why do you want to be mislead?

What also needs to be done is for people to fix their own countries. It’s no easy task but it can be done.

Last panel of border repair up with 330 miles of new border wall expected by 2020. That is probably being built with the 2.5 billion Trump freed up from the military budget courtesy his recent victory over the Dems, and militant 9th Circuit Obama judges, in the Supreme Court. Granny Pelosi is still licking her wounds over that one.
commented 2019-08-13 15:30:07 -0400
hahahaha…Andrew Stephenson are you really that stupid or is that just an act? The reporter clearly said they were “actually completing much needed repair” on the border wall. The old dilapidated wall did not work that well I guess.

You’ve been duped Andrew haha

The border wall in San Diego isn’t “new”. They’re renovating existing segments. Fox is just being their usual fluffer selves.

Meanwhile in Canada some doofus left the back gate open and were being flooded with rat refugees!!!”

No, we’re not. Refugee claims are lower than they’ve been in years. A lot of that is simply because they’re no longer afraid of Trump.
