CBC White Guilt Special Of The Day…

Oh my, a nice Nigerian couple who are allegedly here as “skilled workers” and whose paperwork wasn’t even processed yet decided to have an anchor baby in the USA so the child would have a good future.

Rules say out you go. The CBC says we should cry Crocodile tears.

    This case sounds questionable to me. Note that this family resided in the UAE (Abu Dhabi) on renewable resident/work visas and the Gulf states would never give them permanent resident or citizenship papers. Perhaps, their work visas were not going to be renewed so they decided to move to either the U.S. or Canada rather than be forced to return their own “lovely” African state of Nigeria.
    This immigration tactic has been going on for years in the Gulf states and it should be stopped. It used to be that families would arrive in Canada, get their landing stamp in passports and then promptly return to their jobs in the Gulf by crossing the border to the U.S. and flying out of the there. I think controls have on actual residency requirements in Canada have been tightened up now but Im not sure if they’re working. So many people from third world countries use the Gulf as an interim pathway to immigrate to the West if they can initially obtain Gulf employer sponsorship on worker resident visas. They stay in the Gulf for a period of time, earning decent salaries, work experience and then typically try to immigrate to the U.S., Canada, Australia using “immigration consultants” in the UAE. Once they can become permanent residents (landing status?) here they can eventually obtain their Cdn. citizenship/passport.
    In this case, this family is at least qualified under Cdn. skilled worker program visa but their anchor baby in the U.S. during months of residing there seems unusual although legal? I wonder if their work qualifications in the medical field will have to be upgraded at our expense to meet Cdn. standards. Why didn’t they qualify under the U.S. H1-B work visa program, given that they spent months in the U.S. to have their “anchor” baby and have medical work experience in demand in the U.S to qualify under the HB-1 visa. Also, qualifications from Nigeria or the UAE in the medical field are not necessarily the same as Western standards. The mother’s name is Deborah so they might be Christians which is a plus.

    started reading an article in the Star (yeah, I know but we get if for free at work, and I was really bored at lunch). couldn’t get through two sentences. A serious vomit reaction.
