Deported Mexicans Vow To Flood Into Canada - Immigrating To "The U.S. Is Over...Now It's Canada's Turn"

Tyler Durden's picture

Canada has been applauded in recent months for its decision to lift visa requirements for Mexican 'tourists' as of December 1st.  Rather than a visa, under Trudeau's administration, Mexicans are now only required to have a so-called Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) which can be purchased online for CAD $7.

As one media outlet praised, the move "provides a stark contrast to proposed policies from the US president-elect Donald Trump, who has said he will immediately deport between two and three million illegal immigrants and will build a wall along the US-Mexican border."

Not surprisingly, news of the rule changes in Canada quickly made the rounds in the migrant community with one recently-deported Mexican nationalist declaring that "For those without documents, I think (the United States) is over. Now it's Canada's turn."

Sure enough, in just the three months since Canada's visa rules were relaxed, the number of Mexicans interested in "vacationing" in Canada has soared over 300%. Sure, who wouldn't want to abandon the sweltering 70 degree heat in Mexico for a relaxing vacation in the frozen tundra of our northern neighbor in the dead of winter...it just makes sense. Per Reuters:

Canadian government data shows a tripling of Mexicans seeking to travel to Canada in the three months since the visa requirement was shelved.

 

It is not a firm indicator as many people could be genuine tourists. But tie it to a surge in calls and emails to immigration lawyers from recently arrived Mexicans looking for work permits, as well as the accounts of deportees like Rita and Mexicans already in Canada, and it suggests a new migration pattern may be emerging.

 

Seven immigration lawyers, consultants and activists told Reuters that requests for legal advice from Mexicans who had entered Canada since Dec. 1 had roughly tripled compared with the same period in 2015-2016.

 

Between December and late February, Canada has granted more than 61,500 eTAs (Electronic Travel Authorization forms) to Mexicans, about triple the number of quarterly tourist applications received in the year before the visa requirement was scrapped, official Canadian data shows. The true scale of Mexican immigration will only become fully apparent in June, when early arrivals on these eTAs are due to leave.

 

Flight bookings from Mexico to Canada also swelled 90 percent in January and February versus the same period in 2016, according to travel analysis company ForwardKeys, which reviews all major travel agency bookings. It is unclear what percentage of those bookings were made by people looking to work illegally in Canada.

Migrants

 

Of course, the problem with relaxed immigration policies is not attracting additional 'tourists' to your country but getting them to go home once their invitation expires.  As one migrant who recently immigrated to Toronto told Reuters, once his time as a 'tourist' expires he'll have no choice but to "stay and work illegally."

In 2015, Victor Avila, a 37-year-old architect from Oaxaca, returned home voluntarily from the United States after five years working illegally in Freehold, New Jersey. Shocked by the low wages in Mexico and traumatized by the local murder of his brother, he applied for an eTA.

 

Avila arrived in Toronto a few weeks ago and found work in a restaurant. He was in the process of applying for a work visa, but said he would stay on illegally for a year if it wasn't granted.

 

"I think for many of us in Canada, there's no other option but to stay and work illegally," he said.

Unfortunately, while Canada's relaxed travel requirements were applauded as an enlightened, progressive alternative to Trump's xenophobic, racist approach to immigration, under the surface, Canada's policies function much like Trump's proposals.  As immigration lawyers point out, while 'vacationing' in Canada is easy, getting a work visa can be nearly impossible and Mexicans with a criminal record are not welcome.

Many Mexicans believe the eTA is all they need to set up in Canada, but in almost all cases they are wrong, immigration lawyers said. The eTA does not even guarantee entry.

 

Even if they get past the airport, many low-skilled Mexicans hoping to work illegally are likely to be disappointed, lawyers said, noting that it's difficult for those entering on tourist visas to get work permits without an employer's sponsorship.

 

Some Mexican visitors told Reuters that Canadian immigration officials went through their phones and asked tough questions designed to trip up those seeking to stay and work illegally. While some got through, others were sent home.

 

Canada says those convicted of crimes, as well as gang members, are inadmissible, making it hard for criminally convicted Mexicans deported from the United States to enter.

Just ask Alejandro Becerra's how accommodating Canada's open-minded, progressive immigration policies are..

Alejandro Becerra's experience is a cautionary tale for Mexicans dreaming of a new life in Canada.

 

The 30-year-old former bankteller from Mexico City got a job offer to work in construction in Toronto and flew to the city on Feb. 7 on an eTA.

 

Becerra told a border official at the airport that he was coming as a tourist and showed him his return flight. The official didn't believe him and examined his phone, where he found messages discussing Becerra's job in Toronto.

 

Becerra spent the night in a detention center, and the next morning he was taken in handcuffs to a plane that would return him to Mexico.

Perhaps Mexicans are learning that our 'progressive' northern neighbor isn't so progressive after all...oh well, there's always California.

... it's not too easy for "illegals" to "take advantage" of Canada's free health care ...    >>> http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomers/after-health.asp

... "Getting a health card
To get health care in Canada, you will need a health insurance card from the province or territory where you live. You must show this card each time you get medical services."

... apparently, the health card has a picture ID of the individual and has a number that's hooked up to Canada's .gov database ... perhaps the picture ID can be forged but the number has to match the "ID number" on the .gov database ... and for each visit (to a hospital, clinic or walk-in clicnic) the picture is checked by the receptionist or nurse and the number verified when they enter the data on their computer ... apparently, it instantly flags a fake ID ...

... it's not too easy for "illegals" to get a job ... the illegal worker might somehow get a job that would pay them cash at whatever amount the employer wants them to get paid (and most likely, way below the minimum wage levels and often in hazardous conditions) ... also, if you're an illegal alien, good luck and try to find an employer in Canada who is willing to pay a fine of $50,000 if convicted of hiring an illegal plus imprisonment of up to two years ... >>>

http://www.cnmag.ca/issue-35/477-jobs-consequencesof-illegal-work-n00

... here's the full summary article about "Consequences of Illegal Work" in Canada by the Canadian Newcomer Magazine ...

 "You heard about it from friends, neighbours, relatives. You know it exists, yet you don’t find advertisements about it in newspapers and magazines. You know it is against the law, yet you heard from your friends that “they did it.” You desperately need money and you wonder – if maybe you too should… become an illegal worker. That is, to accept employment without having authorization to work from the Canadian government.

The authorization comes in the shape of a work permit – a document allowing you to accept employment in Canada. If for some reason you are not eligible (for example, if you are a student in your first year in Canada, a visitor on a tourist visa, a denied refugee claimant) and are considering undocumented employment, here are several basics you need to know.

First of all, it is illegal. As a Canadian immigration law professor Lynn Ruggles from Seneca College in Toronto explains, “A foreign national is not authorized to work without a permit. If she or he is working without one (never applied for one; permit expired; changed jobs without new authorization) or was working without one and has ceased to work, then that person is in breach of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA).”

The legal consequences of working without authorization are rather grim. “A hearing may be held at the Immigration and Refugee Board’s Immigration Division,” Ruggles explains, “where the allegation of working illegally would be presented.”

It is the Immigration Division member who decides “whether the foreign national failed to comply with IRPA,” says Ruggles. The decision that you have indeed failed to abide by the law would rule you inadmissible to Canada. This would lead to an exclusion order, which would prevent you from returning to Canada for one or two years.

Claiming that you didn’t know that you had to get a work permit will not help. According to Ruggles, an illegal worker can be found in violation of the IRPA on the grounds of non-compliance regardless of whether the worker knew or didn’t know that it was necessary to obtain a work permit.

The dry terms of the immigration laws might sound intimidating, but do they ever apply to the reality of busy restaurants or noisy construction sites, where nobody cares whether you have a permit or not?

To prove that you are working illegally, evidence is needed to show that services were provided in exchange for some kind of compensation. Immigration regulations state that “work” means “an activity for which wages are paid or commission is earned, or that is in direct competition with the activities of Canadian citizens or permanent residents in the Canadian labour market.”

Employers can avoid a paper trail by paying in cash. “You work, you make money, I don’t care about paperwork,” says Alexandro (not his real name), an Ottawa pizzeria owner who hired several foreign cash workers. “What can they – the government – do? If they come, just tell them you are on training. How can they prove that you are actually working?”

For employers who hire undocumented workers, penalties range from a conviction and a fine of up to 50 thousand dollars to imprisonment for up to two years.
 The CIC and Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) are the primary bodies that make sure the immigration laws are not being violated. The agency’s spokesperson Sabrina Mehes says, “Part of CBSA’s mandate is to investigate persons in violation of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.”

The agency preferred not to share how they detect foreigners who breach the country’s work regulations, but immigration expert Lynn Ruggles says that sometimes “immigration investigators may be made aware of certain employers who hire illegally, or other reliable information comes their way. Sometimes, it is by chance - a foreign national comes to the attention of the police (for example, through a traffic violation) and the police contact immigration officials.”

In theory, undocumented workers are protected by the same employment laws as Canadian citizens. But in reality, you are in no position to complain about getting less than minimum wage, not getting paid at all or any other aspect of your workplace.

“Non-status workers fear that if they complain about working conditions, their employers will notify immigration authorities of their lack of legal status, and the workers will be vulnerable to deportation from Canada. This fear, which is not irrational, leads non-status workers to tolerate conditions that are dangerous, exploitative and unlawful,” explains Audrey Macklin, an immigration law professor at University of Toronto.

“The fear is not unreasonable”, adds Naveen Mehta, a human rights lawyer with United Food and Commercial Workers Union. “You’ve got to remember: undocumented workers are not typically aware of employment law,” he says. “And even if they are, employers tell you: ‘Do the job or you are out, you are going home, we are going to call immigration on you’.”

“Employers pay them below minimum wage, and the safety standards often don’t exist in their jobs, they are always threatened,” says Mehta.

In their study of recent immigrants’ work experiences in the Greater Toronto Area, University of Toronto researchers Patricia Landolt and Luin Goldring found out what some of their interviewees had faced accepting precarious employment.

“They can be working seven days a week, they probably don’t have a bank account or have difficulties opening one, so their employer will pay them cash. So when you get paid, the control over what you get paid is lost,” explains Landolt. She says some of the respondents were owed thousands of dollars by their employers. Some stayed, hoping to get paid eventually.

Others gave up and looked for another job. “There’s a clear sense of being really vulnerable...[and] not just at work: if you are ill, if your house is burning down, people think twice before making use of calling 911 because they are in this precarious situation.”

Surviving in a new country can sometimes be a challenging experience. Working without authorization can make this experience even more stressful."

... and btw, illegals would have a hard time trying to find a place to stay (I heard that it is not a good idea to live in a shack in a farm when the weather hits minus 20 :) ... and the bitter cold in Canada is not the balmy temperature recorded in southern California from Fall to Spring ...

... the Trudeau government might be giving the illegals false hope that they could somehow survive in Canada ... on top of the reasons given above, the cost of living, gas, food, lodging and taxes in Canada are not for the faint-hearted ...

Too bad. You'll only have dishwashers and line cooks coming up. But look on the bright side, all those empty houses will be chock full illegals living 10-20 to a house. Each one leaching off er... benefiting, from your brittle system and sending money back to Mehiko where it can really do some good... or something like that...

Personally I doubt America is "over" to illegals. The media is hyping border crossings going from 10 per month to 13 per month as if it's an avalanche of new immigrants. Don't fool yourselves, corporate America WANTS illegals. Every small business owner and every corporation that employs menial labor overlooks the illegal nature of these folks because they = $$$. Our weak economy can't afford to pay Americans to do these jobs, it simply can't. Trump should know this since he dealt in the hotel industry. So, this is either just window dressing to try to placate those of us who have demanded we uphold rule of law on principle, or it is another fuse attached to the smoldering powder magazine of a global economic reset.

We need to fix our money, banking system and economy. The rest will take care of itself. I recommend we look at starting with the inside out method. I submit to you that we should read/re-read "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey. It's a free audiobook. Better yet, buy a few copies and pass them out to colleagues and friends and family. Seriously, I think it contains the bedrock on which we could begin a a SUSTAINABLE change in course back toward prosperity. Many of us naturally do some parts of it, but the more of us that earnestly assume and apply these principles on a consistent basis the closer we are to an actual restoration.

Sorry buddy, I mean your post seems factual, but what makes you think they will Actually enforce the laws? We have laws against that shit too here, and they are simply ignored.

@Peak Finance

>>> but what makes you think they will Actually enforce the laws?

... well, sorry to rain on your parade ... the immigration laws are not controlled by the courts nor Congress (unlike the US federal judges or snowflake representatives who could deny the US President an executive order) ... Canada is Parliamentary system and its Provinces do not have the power to over-rule the federal government ... again, not like the States in the US where they (for instance, the snowflake libtards in California, or NY or Illinois) often would ignore the US federal laws and setup sanctuary cities because the States somehow are allowed to do it ...

... in contrast, in Canada as detailed here >>> http://settlement.org/ontario/immigration-citizenship/immigration-laws/enforcement/how-does-the-government-enforce-canadian-immigration-laws/ >>> entitled, "How does the government enforce Canadian immigration laws?"

... it says:

Immigration laws are mainly enforced by 2 federal government departments:

  • Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) - IRCC is responsible for Canadian immigration and citizenship. Get information on IRCC policy, programs and services, application kits, and more.
  • Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) - Responsible for border services (port-of-entry services), customs and enforcement of some immigration laws in Canada. For example, CBSA officers work at borders and ports of entry, and handle arrests, detentions and removals.

... if you read carefully, you will notice that Canada, being a Parliamentary system, the Members of Parliament nor the judicial courts have no say in enforcing the immigration laws ... only the IRCC and the CBSA have any say in enforcing the Canadian immigration laws ...

... btw, if you have any more questions about Canadian immigration, just go ogle it (or do the web crawler) ... it took me just a couple of seconds to answer your question and, sorry buddy, you can wipe the smirk off your face now ;) ...

"apparently, the health card has a picture ID of the individual"

Mine doesn't.

PrayingMantis's picture

 

... you have the very old red and white card, with your name and number, without photo ID, right? ...(and you must be a senior citizen as well because that old red and white card had been phased out, I believe, more than two decades ago) ... and it was this old card that was passed around in the past and misused by "illegals"  which prompted the government to issue the new IDs with picture ...

 

so, your ha-ha-I-got-you statement, "Mine doesn't." is rather incomplete and misleading ...

 

... I don't know if you are or not a stupid Canadian (it just says JimmyCDN which I assume "JimmyCanadian") ... and if you're a Canadian which you claim you are, you would know that the new health card has a picture ID, your name and health card number on it (and it took me only a few seconds to find that out; check the link below) ... unless you're too obtuse to figure that out ...

 

... it says it here >>> and this is from the Ontario, Canada website (you can look up your provincial website where you live) >>> here >>> http://health.gov.on.ca/en/public/publications/ohip/card.aspx and here >>> "Renewing Your Photo Health Card"  <<< >>>http://health.gov.on.ca/en/public/publications/ohip/renew.aspx 

... again, it says: "Renewing Your Photo Health Card" ... duh!

Where are you coming from, what with that "red and white card" thing? We do not have a national health card, red and white, or whatever.
It's obvious that you are in/from Ontario. Oh how typical of an Ontarian to assume we all had red and white health cards (like Ontario did) at some point in our provincial lives.

... >>> "Where are you coming from, what with that "red and white card" thing?" <<<

@Lower Tones

... just right above your comment is a link that I posted for another ZH commenter (which I'd assume you were responding to), and if you click it, it would (and I trust you might be capable of clicking a link with your mouse or any other pointing device you use) shed some light to my "red and white health card" comment ... and to save you from an unnecessary mouse click, I'll just cut and paste the details ... and I'll even highlight it for you in italics (with chevrons so you won't miss it) in case you'd simply "want to" miss it ... >>> http://health.gov.on.ca/en/public/publications/ohip/card.aspx 

 

Your >>> red and white health card <<< needs to be switched to a photo health card because:

  • You received a letter requesting you switch to a photo health card
  • It is lost, stolen or damaged (e.g., card is broken, magnetic strip doesn't work)
  • Your name has changed
  • Your date of birth or other information has been recorded incorrectly (your provider may discover this while checking your health card)
  • A health provider has advised you that there is something wrong with your card or your coverage
  • You received notification from the ministry to register for a photo health card

 

... in case you missed it, yet again, it states ... > Your red and white health card needs to be switched to a photo health card ... which, if you'd try to analyze that statement, a "red and white health card" to be switched to a "photo card" most probably, (and I'm willing to go out on a limb on this), has no "picture" or "photo" of the "red and white health card" owner. I'm only hoping I wrote this whole thing and to be understandable in Canadian english.

 

... someone once wrote, and let me quote "Euripides" (c. 480-406 BC, tragedian of classical Athens) ... and this is what he wrote:

"Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish."


PrayingMantis's picture

 

... @ Lower Tones ... here's other links on the other provinces that, although their health cards are not in "red and white", or with a photo, the fact is, you'd still have to prove who you are when seeking health care in Canada ... note, I don't want to go past Quebec ... I'll give you that opportunity to check it out yourself ...

@JimmyCDN, take note as well ....

 

>>> British Columbia >>> http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/health-drug-coverage/msp/bc-residents/personal-health-identification/your-carecard >>> "If you are over the age of 19 and under the age of 75, visit an ICBC DLO with two pieces of ID to obtain a photo BC Services Card. "

 

>>> Alberta >>> http://www.health.alberta.ca/AHCIP/carry-your-card.html  ... note: if you check the image to your right, it says, "Health Card. Photo ID. Carry Both".

 

>>> Manitoba >>> http://www.gov.mb.ca/health/mhsip/mbcard.html ... note: if you check the image of the "card", it says, "Valid only if resident of Manitoba".  Obviously, you have to provide another piece of ID (a driver's license, perhaps? with a photo?)

 

>>> Quebec >>> http://www4.gouv.qc.ca/EN/Portail/Citoyens/programme-service/Pages/Info.aspx?sqctype=service&sqcid=3892 

... under "Required Documents"

To have a correction made to the last name, first name, birth date, or sex, the original of one of the following documents must be provided:

  • Birth certificate or a copy of the act of birth
  • Canadian Citizenship Card or Certificate of Canadian Citizenship
  • Document issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada
  • Certificate of change of name
  • Certificate of change or designation of sex

The person must also provide 2 pieces of identification, one of which must be a photo ID, among the following:

  • Québec health insurance card or a health insurance card issued by another Canadian province
  • Québec driver's licence or a driver's licence issued by another Canadian province
  • Birth certificate or a copy of the act of birth
  • Passport
  • Canadian Citizenship Card (wallet size with a photo)
  • Certificate of change of name or of designation of sex
  • Document issued by the Québec or Canadian immigration authority

 

... so you see, @Lower Tones, when @JimmyCDN wrote: "Mine doesn't" referring to my comment about a "red and white" Ontario health card having a picture ID, he still needs to supply any of those ID documents required by the health care providers in Canada ...

 

... and here's another quote from "Cicero" (106-43 BC, Roman philosopher and statesman) ... "I am not ashamed to confess  I am ignorant of what I do not know."

It may sound like Canada is on the ball but it's like any other country, the individuals in the country that are using illegal workers know the loop holes and things to say to not get caught up by being fined and such. 

 

PrayingMantis's picture

 

>>> "...it's like any other country, the individuals in the country that are using illegal workers know the loop holes and things to say to not get caught up by being fined and such." ...

... that's so true, Buck ... in fact in the past, there was no penalty to Canadian employers who, in one way or another, encourage illegal workers to break the immigration law.  However, to solve some of the "loophole" issues, the Canadian gov raised the penalty to $35K which curtailed illegal worker hirings somewhat and raised it again to $55K plus 2 years in prison for those who hire illegals (check the link in one of those replies I did above).  It might be really tough to find a Canadian employer who would risk all for hiring an illegal worker just to be "politically correct".  In the US, companies like Starfucks would even flaunt and advertise they will hire 10,000 refugees (short of calling them what they really are, illegals, because only US citizens, permanent residents, green card holders and work visa permit holders should be the only ones allowed to work in the US).

But that's not the issue here.  Canada is so desperately looking for workers (legal or otherwise).  During the recent Calgary boom years, they brought in huge numbers from desperate english-speaking countries like the Philippines to work at fast food joints and were given work permits because there were absolutely no available people to work the joints. And in the caregiver section, Canadians (with children and old-age senior dependents) actively sponsored nannies and caregivers from other countries in order for them to be able to work (the same scenario in Hong Kong where nannies and caregivers are so well in-demand because the HKers have to work either in business or elsewhere). And this is where the difference lies. Canada needs people to work (due to her slow population growth) and given the chance, illegals or non-Canadians (from all over the world) are actually encouraged to apply for work visa.  This is different than companies creating loopholes to buck the Canadian system and the government cracks down on them because these companies would create an unsafe work environment for these illegals or non-Canadians; let alone not paying them the right wages.

Most Americans are in denial and instead of accepting the true stats that one-third of Americans are unemployed or on welfare, (out of approx. 300 million total population, almost 100 million are "out of the labor force", another one-third are children and the rest work part-time or full-time or .gov tit-suckers) the US leaders would instead call them 5% unemployed and the rest of the one-third unemployeds are "out of the labor force", "unemployed food stamp recipients" or "on welfare" (which if you stare at the statement, it would give the same concept ... "not working" or "unemployed".  And worse, Americans keep electing useless idiots like None See Pelosi or that treasonous Hanoi songbird from Aridzona, John McStain, and wonder why the system doesn't work.

Half of Americans fail to see the advantages of having President Trump tackle some of these issues. However, due to "deep-state" pressures, most especially from the Military-Industrial Complex, POTUS might have been forced to raise unnecessary defense spending, which analysts say, was already far more than all the other countries' defense budgets combined. Well, Trump is not stupid ... who wants a military-induced coup-d'etat when the MIC didn't get their way?

There are other questions to ask ... one is, how does a country like Canada with only (approx.) 36 million population and with an effective unemployment rate of 6% could afford free health care, and in some cases free housing, welfare, free education through high school and still maintain a high-standard of living compared to the current atmosphere in the US? Perhaps it's because the people in Canada (legal or otherwise) try to work together, peacefully ... (none of these Berkeley-or-Baltimore-induced-riots-funded-by-Soros that undermine peaceful co-existence happening in the US).

Perhaps, a study on "rat in a cage" population research could shine a light on America's dilemma ... here's one such study by John Omaha, Phd, that one might find interesting (unless one turns a blind eye) ... and, on those "Alpha" males or females, just substitute the names of current and former US leaders from the POTUS down to the lowly .gov bureaucrat in Congress or State government, including the 16 "intelligence" agencies, political action commitees, NGOs, Soros, the Klingons (Bill and Hiliary) et.al., to get the bigger picture >>> http://culturechange.org/issue19/overpop_terrorism.htm ...

... partly, it says, "Many people will find it difficult to compare human populations to rat populations. Many humans will suffer for that cognitive impairment. When a pair of reproductively competent rats are placed in a closed space and provided with sufficient food, they will reproduce and reproduce until the space is filled with rats. At a critical density, wars break out. Some rats, alpha males, claim territory and defend it. Others attack. Sound familiar? Only difference between rats and humans is the language-making capability of the human left brain. We humans give names to our territoriesó"World Trade Center" is one. The right brain, impelled by drives and emotions, is the fundamental force operating here. The left brain makes "reasons" for what the right brain is going to do anyway. Some of these "reasons" are: democracy, Islam, God, Allah, terrorist, Third World, globalization.
What we are seeing is the result of an exponentially increasing population. This is population biology at work. Anthropologists and population biologists studied all the wars in history for which adequate data were available. They learned that war breaks out when the percentage of the population consisting of single males in the age range 16-26 exceeds a certain fraction of the total population. Whatever Osama bin Laden may call it, whatever Al Fatah, or the PLO, or Jonas Savimbi, or Mexican President Fox, or the Australians who refuse to allow the Indonesian refugees into their country, whatever the East Timorese may call it, the Afghanis, the Pakistanisówhatever name is given is not correct; the correct name is overpopulation."

This seems to apply to the current US scenario and perhaps President Trump is trying curtail these "overpopulation" (wall, extreme vetting, America first, etc.) in favor of giving the benefits to the current US citizenry.

... and may God bless America, indeed!

Don't forget the Welfare Industrial Complex.  Welfare is a big employer of Democrats at good wages, benefits and pensions.  Crony capitalists profit from Section 8 rents, hack pill mill doctors and on and on.

When they flood into primary schools, Canada will understand the concepts of "Public daycare" and "Diminishing Education" the way we do in the US.

Who are the retards that downvoted Mantis factual posting?  You don't like reality, so you downvote it?  There is always Huffington Post if you need an alternate reality fix.

The U.S. chain migrates, so it creates an army of spies.  The preceeding Mexican's teach all their secrets to the subsequent invading Mexicans.  They know all the tricks and loopholes.  They have buddies that can help them get jobs through an informal network.  Mexicans are fully up in the panties of America.

Canada's system does not use chain migration.

That said, there are always greedy people who want to take wage arbitrage on somebody elses labor value. Some criminal minded Canadians will find a way to use Mexican labor.

Legal,illegal it is all good to the (((DEEP STATE)))

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That any Alien being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof on application to any common law Court of record in any one of the States wherein he shall have resided for the term of one year at least, and making proof to the satisfaction of such Court that he is a person of good character, and taking the oath or affirmation prescribed by law to support the Constitution of the United States... And the children of such person so naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under the age of twenty one years at the time of such naturalization, shall also be considered as citizens of the United States. And the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens: Provided, that the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States... United States Congress, “An act to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization” (1790).

When you have non-Whites deciding immigration policy, I think you've reached game-over as a country.

Sam was fired from National Review by Bill Buckley for telling the truth about a certain group:

Mass Immigration Eats Through The Melting Pot
March 04, 2004 Sam Francis

It's also interesting he acknowledges the Jewish connection, since it's becoming increasingly obvious. Mr. Karnow, as he makes sure to tell us at the end of his column, is Jewish himself, and so, he also made sure to tell us, was Kallen. And one reason they like immigration so much is precisely because of what it does to the "Anglo Protestant core" of American civilization.

A couple of years ago, the Forward, the principal Jewish newspaper in the country, reported a remark made by Leonard Glickman, president and CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, in explaining why his organization was promoting the resettlement of Somali refugees in the United States: "The more diverse American society is the safer [Jews] are." Mr. Glickman is not alone.

Perhaps for much the same reason, Jewish John Podhoretz, David Brooks and several others don't much like the very concept of an "Anglo Protestant core."

Unlike most conservatives, almost all of them rushed to endorse President Bush's amnesty proposals as soon as he announced them, and some like Mr. Brooks have rushed to denounce the Huntington article.

Jewish Americans played a crucial role in pushing for mass immigration throughout the last century, and there's no more reason that should be a secret than there is that Roman Catholics have pushed hard for banning abortion.

Unfortunately, there is a secret about it—because people who mention it tend to get smashed as "anti-Semites."

It's a just a temporarily bigger trickle into Canada. America has many so social justice warriors in positions of authority between the source and Canada, it would take decades of crackdowns to actually change anything in a meaningful way. But, by all means don't let me stop you from gloating over absolutely nothing.

There should be a line on your tax return for voluntary contributions. Should read:

Enter here the # of illegal immagrants you would like to send to Canada @ $7 each. Please multiply by $7 and add to total amount due. America thanks you.

We should also bus them to Canada.

Some irony in that...

If they are flying in or using a boat to go Pacific or Atlantic Ocean route fine.

Otherwise, stop plugging up our sewers and putting wear-and-tear on our roads.

Sounds like we need to start planning the Canadian Wall, especially since the Canucks seems to love Islamic Jihadist's.

Now we are talking.  Since the Canadians have long since wanted to express their moral superiority, they now have a wonderful opportunity to accept 50 million 'immigrants' to infest their schools, health care system, and housing market.  In fact, if you are Canadian, make sure you really show up the Americans by doubling their food stamp and housing subsidies.  Thanks you so much for helping our neighbors to the south!
