CANADA SCARED OF EL SALVADORANS INFLUX AFTER TRUMP’S DECISION:’PLEASE DON’T COME HERE’

Flip Flop Prime Minister of Canada
  • 2017 – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:  “To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith.”
  • 2018 – After Homeland Security announced it was withdrawing Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, for 200,000 Salvadorans: If you don’t qualify for refugee or asylum status, don’t try to cross into Canada.

OTTAWA – When the Trump administration issued an immigration ban on citizens of seven majority Muslim countries a year ago, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent out an unambiguous tweet about Canada’s stance on refugees and asylum seekers.

“To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength,” Trudeau wrote on Jan. 28.

But when U.S. Homeland Security announced this week that it was withdrawing Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, for 200,000 Salvadorans, giving them 18 months to sort out their immigration status permanently or face deportation, the reaction from the Canadian government was more muted.

 

Fearing an influx of newcomers crossing “irregularly” into Canada from the United States, the Canadian government has embarked on an information campaign to discourage Salvadorans from trekking north, as thousands of Haitians did when threatened with a loss of protected status last summer.

The government announced that it was planning to send Pablo Rodriguez, a Spanish-speaking member of Parliament, to California in the coming days to speak to community groups, lawyers and Spanish-language media. His message is simple: If you don’t qualify for refugee or asylum status, don’t try to cross into Canada.

 

“Canada has a robust and structured immigration system that must be respected,” Argentina-born Rodriguez told La Presse newspaper in a French-language interview. “Before leaving your job, pulling your child from school and selling your house to come to Canada, make sure you understand the rules and the laws. Because if you don’t fill these criteria, chances are you’ll be returned, not to the U.S. but to your native country.”

The government also says there are plans for a “targeted digital campaign” aimed at TPS-affected communities.

    Those drug dealing, raping, murderous MS-13 gangbangers must scare the hell out of Obama wannabe. Apparently, Trudea is an Obama wannabe with exception.
