Thread: Should Canada take in US deportees?

    Default Should Canada take in US deportees?

    With Donald Trump's election win in the USA, he's promised to see that their immigration service deports millions of illegal immigrants. (Apparently there are tens of millions of people in question.)

    Should Canada offer to take in some of those millions?

    Sure. The Canadians among them, if that's the type that will be deported.

    Seriously -- I'm pretty sure there'll be no round-ups at all.

    So, another amnesty? 11 to 12 million? I don't think so. I think he'll push for some upholding of their laws first. Though something seen as a "round up", I doubt it.

    I read where about half are from Mexico and the other half from other countries around the world.

    Do we have jobs for celebs?

    Also, do we want to take back Canadians that moved away?

    A bit hypocritical for the celebs to want to move to Canada, they are wealthy enough to be insulated against most of what ails America.

    I think our current immigration standards, quotas, and procedures are adequate. Wouldn't fuss about the processing times decreasing and the efficiency increasing though, naturally.

    I bet there were a number of Canadians wanting to move to the U S when Captain Selfie was elected.

    ^ ha ha, go ahead. I'm not even a Liberal (perenially swing party/anti-Calgary cabal and no deeper) but that's so obviously false chest inflation. Go right ahead. Enjoy the warm Arizona sunshine!

    Just posting this so no one confuses the flood of Mexican tourists with US refugees.

    Canadian officials preparing for potential flood of Mexican migrants after Trump wins presidency
    Tourist visa will no longer be required for Mexican visitors as of Dec. 1
    By Kathleen Harris, CBC News Posted: Nov 10, 2016 8:53 PM ET Last Updated: Nov 10, 2016 8:53 PM ET
    Excerpt:

    Sources confirm high level meetings took place this week with officials at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and in other departments.

    The news comes as Canada prepares to loosen rules for Mexicans to enter the country by lifting a visa requirement on Dec. 1. That restriction has been in place since 2009.

    Talks on a plan to cope with a possible spike in asylum-seekers have been ongoing for some time, but were accelerated this week after Trump's surprise win.
    ...

    Asylum claims way down

    The number of Mexican claims referred to the Immigration and Refugee Board was climbing dramatically until it peaked at 9,511 in 2009. After the visa requirement was imposed, it dropped to 1,349, then continued to shrink to only 120 in 2015. Between January and June this year, there were only 60 cases, according to the most recent figures available.

    Government officials had suggested the visa requirement could be reinstated if the number of asylum claims from Mexico reaches 3,500 in any given year. But a news release announcing the policy did not mention any conditions attached to the change.

    Vancouver-based immigration lawyer Richard Kurland called that cap a "close the barn door after the horse has bolted" policy. He said the government should carefully track weekly intake and "flip the switch" if it exceeds, for example, 100 cases.

    "It is foolish to know claims will exceed 3,500 in a year, and do nothing during the year," he said. "We have the technology to be more nimble."

    ^By visa's do they mean working visa's or visitors visa's.? Do they think Mexicans will be applying for these visa's the asking asylum once in Canada?.

    I mean, if they cannot accept the outcome of their own democratic election process to the point where they leave the country, why would we want them to come here and spread that sort of dissident among us.

    They got back on the plane plane when they found out that there was no Whole Foods, kale was hard to find, and they couldn't get organic soy for their lattes topped with truffle oil foam.

    Clinton took the defeat more graciously than her supporters, at least on camera she did. I'm not sure if celebrity supporters help or hinder a candidate. I doubt it would influence me and a lot of other people I know.

    Yeah, and it's unfortunate for you that they are. You sound like you have been awake a straight 48 hours and are about to crash.
