Trump travel ban could help Canada

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 6, 2017

This was an interesting little nugget buried in an otherwise mundane news report.


Trump’s travel ban will aid Canada. The boy and the man photo from

It seems that some of those migrants from the Middle East and Africa, trying to get in to Canada across our northern border, actually intended to get to Canada anyway by first obtaining visas to travel to the US.

Here is the story at Arab News:

The recent wave of migrants to Canada originated mostly from East Africa and war-torn nations such as Syria.


Federal police and immigration officials said some refugees appeared to have intended from the start to come to Canada after flying to the US on a visitor visa.

Failed asylum seekers are illegal aliens!

Others decided to come only after they were denied asylum south of the border, or because they feared deportation amid the current US crackdown. [Trump should be able to bring those numbers down by DETAINING those who failed to be granted asylum! They shouldn’t be wandering loose around the US anyway!—ed]

From Jan. 1 to Feb. 21, a total of about 4,000 people filed refugee claims in Canada, up from 2,500 during the same period last year.

The figure includes border jumpers and those arriving from the US at border checkpoints.

Local officials say at least 180 asylum-seekers have crossed the border near Emerson since January.

So, if Trump’s expected new EO does ban travel for a time from 6 or 7 mostly Muslim countries, less should be getting in to the US on a false pretense, and consequently less would be heading to Canada from here. Right?

Here are a few of our previous posts on the latest buzz on the Canadian border. Here is another one.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau plans to spend $650 million over the next three years to promote third-world abortions and other “reproductive health” issues, he announced Wednesday, to commemorate International Women’s Day.

    It’s money for programs that women in developing countries don’t even want, say critics of Trudeau, Canada’s first self-described “feminist” prime minister who has promised to expand abortion services across Canada and around the world.

    Trudeau told reporters Wednesday afternoon that Canadian taxpayers will be doubling Canada’s current funding of international “reproductive health services,” family planning and “sexuality education.” He did not mention “abortion” in his remarks, except by euphemism.
