Canada detaining record numbers of Mexicans seeking entry

Canada detaining record numbers of Mexicans seeking entry

Maybe Canadians aren’t as nice as they seem…

Reuters has discovered that Canada has detained at least five times as many Mexicans than in the previous two years due to new visa requirements.

This stat is interesting considering the fact that Canada has portrayed itself as welcoming and America as a bad guy to Mexicans. From Reuters:

Canada’s detention of Mexicans surged more than tenfold from 24 in November to 331 in April, the data show. The number of Mexicans filing refugee claims more than quadrupled from November to March.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to lift the visa requirement, imposed by the previous government, during the 2015 election campaign in an effort to improve bilateral relations. Visitors from Mexico can now apply online for an electronic travel permit in a process that takes minutes.

With the visa requirement lifted, more Mexicans have drifted towards Canada, especially after harsh words from President Donald Trump. On the campaign trail, Trump regularly stated that Mexico sends its criminals and bad people to the states.

Well, Canada’s border agency has the ability to “detain foreign nationals indefinitely on no charge if it believes they pose a danger to the public, if their identities are unclear or if they are deemed unlikely to appear for removal or for a proceeding.”

Did Trump have a point then?

Welcome to Canada?

Also, is Canada as welcoming to Mexicans as Trudeau portrayed the country? After all, lawyer Ali Esnaashari, who has represented some of the detainees, told Reuters that the agency has applied “significant pressure on detainees to willingly leave instead of fighting to stay.” He continued:

“They’re usually offered: ‘You can be in detention or you just go back and withdraw your request to enter the country,'” he said. “Most of them end up spending a night or two at the immigration holding center and then they go on the plane and go back home.”

Reuters noticed these numbers spiking back in March. This is what authorities told the outlet at the time:

Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Minister Ahmed Hussen has said his department is monitoring the situation.

“It would be premature to draw conclusions or to speculate on future policy at this point,” Hussen’s spokeswoman, Camielle Edwards, wrote in an email Friday evening.

There can be a very high price for virtue signaling. maybe the mexicans will fight the muslims or they can join them in the destruction of a free Christian nation.

Cool, lets put buses on the U.S.border.Any immigrant with proof of the electronic travel permit gets a free ride to Canada. Maybe Justin can let them stay at his house.

And thanks Justin, we’re really going to appreciate the increase in fossil fuel production from the tar sands.

And if we run out of Mexican Nationals with the travel permits, then let’s just start sending any Mexican Nationals here illegally. Keep in mind Mexico’s own bi-polar policy towards Central American wanting into Mexico.

Half the time they rob, rape and sometimes murder Central Americans. The survivors are thrown back across the border to the south.

Half the time they help smuggle them into our country for a bribe.

Since illegal Mexican invaders are inherently virtuous by international definition, let’s pass the virtue on to Canada.

Guess there’s good reason it’s called “The Great White North!”

Clearly ex-President Obama needs to go there right away and give one of those finger pointing “that’s not who we are / wrong side of history” speeches.
