SHOCK: Canada Doesn't Want Illegal Immigrants Either

Due to Trump’s tough talk on immigration, more and more illegal aliens are choosing to go to Canada. Now, Canada is saying enough is enough.

“We remain unwavering in our commitment to offer protection for those determined to flee war, persecution or terror,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship. “But there is a lot of false information in those communities. Not having or losing status in the U.S. is not grounds for an asylum claim.”

Translation: Trump making you feel unwelcome in the United States doesn’t mean you’re welcome in Canada.

The harder line signals a massive shift from Canada’s previous intentions.

After Trump launched his travel ban from seven Muslim-majority countries, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to Twitter to write: “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada.”

Unfortunately for Trudeau, too many people took him literally: illegal immigration to Canada is up nearly 80 percent since July.

Complicating the issue is the fact that a large number of Canadians simply don’t want their borders opened to everyone. Back in March, nearly 40% of Canadians said that mass illegal immigration would make Canada “less safe.”
