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.
Canada: Muslim migrant with nine bombs strapped to suicide vest takes 13 hostages inside bank
“WARMINGTON: Vaughan hostage taker wore suicide vest, demanded to speak with Trump,” by Joe Warmington, Toronto Sun, December 14, 2017:
Demanding to talk to United States President Donald Trump, the 25-year-old man had nine bombs strapped to a suicide vest, a detonator in one hand and a gun in the other.
And he was threatening to use his entire arsenal inside an RBC branch — at the corner of Major MacKenzie Dr. and Dufferin St. in Vaughan — where he had up to 13 hostages Wednesday.
“He was waving his gun around,” said a person who was on the scene. “He was not demanding money. He asked for no money. He said he wanted crystal meth and he wanted to talk to Trump.”
He also asked for panicked bank employees to call police.
Police are working to determine whether his arsenal or threats were real. But York Regional Police did not take any chances. After a robot was deployed inside the bank, two officers took him out with gunshots.
“I am glad that they did,” said one person who was inside the building before being told to get out by police. “It was a scary situation when a guy has bombs and a gun.”
This investigation is still very much in its early stages with forensics to determine what was authentic. The province’s Special Investigation’s Unit, which investigates police shootings, was all over this taped-off scene Thursday.
One source who was on the scene said officers tried everything they could to get the man to surrender and to free his hostages.
“In the end there was no negotiating with him. He didn’t want to talk anymore,” said the insider, who described him as appearing emotionally unstable.
One of the working theories is suicide by cop. Little is known about the dead man so far. The SIU had not yet released his name.
Who was this mystery man and why did he drive a car from the Bathurst St.-Teston Rd. area four kilometres to the bank with a suicide vest?
“He is Middle Eastern,” confirmed a police source. “I believe he’s originally from Egypt.” One witnessed [sic] said there was no references to any religious or terror allegiences [sic] in the man’s rantings. The only thing political was the name “Trump.”…
“Foreign terrorist travellers” will be given “reintegration support”
That means that the Trudeau government will shower money upon them, in the mistaken assumption that poverty and lack of economic opportunity that cause terrorism. Then they will be shocked, shocked!, when some of these men return to jihad anyway.
In reality, these jihadis are enemy combatants. They joined an entity that is avowedly at war with Canada, and has called for jihad massacres on Canadian soil. They should not be allowed back in.
“PATHETIC: Trudeau Government Calls Jihadis ‘Returning Foreign Terrorist Travellers,’”
…Here’s what Trudeau government spokesman said Dan Brien (obviously using PMO approved talking points), when asked about Canada’s policies on ISIS fighters coming back to the country:
“Returning foreign terrorist travellers and their families, specifically women and children, require the appropriate disengagement and reintegration support.”
While the “reintegration support,” is the most disturbing part, the fact that the government is trying to “rebrand” dangerous Jihadis as “returning foreign terrorist travellers” is absurd.
This is disgracefully manipulative wording by the Trudeau government. These people weren’t sightseeing in a place terrorism happened to occur. They were actively fighting on behalf of a brutal terrorist organization.
It unfortunately fits with a troubling pattern of the Trudeau government prioritizing political correctness above all else, and seeking to downplay what is a real threat to the Canadian people. After all, other countries are trying to eliminate Jihadis before they can return, while the Trudeau government seems most worried about sounding “nice.”…
In Manitoba, 80 people were intercepted after crossing the border. In British Columbia, 102 people were stopped.
But the vast majority – 5,530 – crossed into Quebec in the first part of the month, where people can easily cross a ditch at the end of a rural New York state road into Canada.
The influx into the predominantly French-speaking province was led by Haitians who had been living legally in the US, protected by a programme that extended temporary protection from deportation to Haitian citizens after the devastating 2010 earthquake.
The Trump administration has hinted it will not extend that protection when it expires in January 2018.
The lunacy continues! School cancels Mother’s Day and Father’s Day celebration in “effort to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and also nurture our students who are part of non-traditional families.”
According to a report from First Coast News, a letter about the cancelation of Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day was sent home to parents of first and second graders from staffers at Albert McMahon Elementary School, located in British Columbia, Canada.
“As Mother’s Day and Father’s Day approach we have met as a Primary (Grade 1 and 2) team to discuss our core values,” reads the letter. “In an effort to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and also nurture our students who are part of non-traditional families, we have decided to encourage those celebrations to take place at home. Due to this, the children will not be making gifts at school to give on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. We feel each family knows the best way to celebrate with their own family.”
Next to Britain and European Union, Canada is the other western country being neutered by Islam. The left is vehement when it comes to no religion in school. Then comes Islam and the left couldn’t wait to switch from burning their bra into putting a burqa, turn schools into mosques and teach children how to pray to the Muslim allah. What a mental retard.
