Several whiny editorials have been posted up around the internet by liberals who are apparently upset that Canadian immigrants don’t get subjected to the same scrutiny as ones coming from Muslim countries, and that these immigrants and visitors apparently get extra benefits.
Despite the fact that Canada is generally a safe country, whose visitors and immigrants are easily vetted because Canada actually keeps paperwork and track records of all who come through its lands, liberals are playing their favorite card, accusing the Trump Administration of “racism”.
The US has cancelled hundreds of visas for those coming from Muslim countries in favor of vetting those applicants more closely – seeing what can happen to crime rates when you let in people indiscriminately. In Europe for example, weeks of riots, crime sprees, and terrorist acts have been the direct action of immigrants from Islamic countries.
Look at what this editorialist for the Independent wrote:
And you’d be right. Because this is the villainous explanation for the bill – which would allow certain Canadians to spend more time per year in America than in their native land – provided by its cosponsor, Republican Ted Yoho of Florida: “We want people with good standing to come here and stay as long as they care. We come from similar backgrounds, we believe in the same thing. There’s no assimilation [necessary]. The morals and mores we have are pretty much the same as they have, so it’s pretty much an easy transition.”
I have spared readers the endless “sic” markers which would otherwise be littered across this paragraph. But let us dwell briefly on the semantics.
“Similar backgrounds” doesn’t sound to me like an invitation to 55-year-old Muslim Canadian immigrants. As for no “assimilation” necessary… Well no, there wouldn’t be, would there, since those friendly, older, ever-so-similar Canadians would be from the same “background” as older Florida Americans.
