As a result of the recent immigration executive order illegal aliens and refugees are fleeing elsewhere than our country. But now it seems they are headed to Canada. One Farhan Ahmed is doing just that. The 36-year-old refugee is one of about twenty-four who marched across the Canadian border. They went to the small town of Emerson.
They broke records in a single week of people who fled the United States. Several lost fingers to frostbite in the freezing cold. At one point it got to be -4 degrees Fahrenheit. One man, Wayne Pfield told the media that refugees often stop at his establishment the Emerson hotel asking if hey have reached Canada yet.
Often the police are called and then the people are taken to the nearest border outpost. There they can file an asylum claim. RCMP Corporal Paul Manaigre said the following about those who cross the border there.
“They usually call us if they’re cold or lost, and we find them on the side of the highway.”
However, an agreement with the government of Canada makes it so that asylum seekers fleeing the United States cannot lodge claims in Canada if they first landed stateside. It only applies to border checkpoints, airports, the train stations.
Canada’s Border Services Agency has noted that statistics have approximately doubled in each of the last four years from 321 cases in 2015-2016. Beginning in April there have been about 403 new cases.
The majority of people come from Djibouti, Ghana, Nigeria and Somalia. Some case workers are noting that people are saying it’s their fear of Donald Trump making them leave the United States. Immigration Partnership Winnipeg’s Hano Al-Ubeady said,
“It saddens me to see refugees flee not only their country but also a safe, democratic country like the United States.They have to take another risky journey to make it to another safe place — Canada.”
However, what everyone is failing to note is that the temporary order which only limits travel from seven countries was temporary. Not to mention it has temporarily been halted and is no longer being followed while it sees its way through the judicial system. Thus there is no danger to them now or ever.
This is nothing more than liberal fear mongering created in order to depict the White House as some World War II-era dictator.
