Door knocks in the dark: The Canadian town on front line of Trump migrant crackdown

Jaime French was jarred out of bed in Emerson, Manitoba early one morning this month by pounding at her front door, just yards from the U.S. border. A face peered in through the window, flanked in the darkness by others.

Outside were 16 asylum seekers, arriving at one of the first houses they saw after crossing a lightly monitored border between Canada and the United States.

“They banged pretty hard, then ‘ring ring ring’ the doorbell,” said French, a mother of two young girls. “It was scary. That really woke me up.”

The town has become the front line of an emerging political crisis that is testing Canada’s will to welcome asylum seekers.

    The really scary parts are all the shouts of “Allahu Akbar” in the middle of the night!

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Ah, no. That only happens at Quebec mosques until the federal government and CBC claim “Allahu ackbar” was never said there at all.

      • Liberal Progressive

        But doesn’t Allahu Akbar just mean “have a merry Christmas”?

        • Etobicoke_Gladiator

          For many leftists, it just might mean that along with the obvious Islam = peace jibberish.

    They are lucky the invaders knocked as opposed to breaking in and taking what they want and murdering and raping the owners.

      this summer

      • Exile1981

        Thats when the bands of hundreds start crossing and turning the town into a no go zone.

          The silver lining in this dark cloud will be that they will dissapear for a couple of months a year to visit family and friends and holiday back in their war torn shit-holes after establishing their welfare entitlements.

        • Flame

          With the time it will be like French city Calais.

    • mobuyus

      Let them acclimatize please.

  • PaulW

    What I fear is that at some point, the knocks (more like hammer blows) in the middle of the night will be from the sharia-compliant police, dropping by to ensure that the government’s diversity agenda is not resisted. Do not underestimate how dangerous this situation is and may become to the freedoms and security of Canadians.

    Give these dirtbags directions to 24 Sussex Drive.

    So how long are you going to put up with it Canada? How many robberies, rapes, stabbings and beheadings will it take before the RMPC is told to turn these parasites back at the border? How much are Canadians willing to pay to house and feed them for their inbred generations, or to provide them transport back to the hellholes they made of their own countries? Which Canadians will be chosen to die for the sharia these parasites worship? People of Emerson, Canada, say no to these foul animals and say no to the idiots at the RCMP. If either come to your homes and community meet them with shotguns in hand. Protect yourselves.

    • Alain

      How long you ask? It will continue unless we get a party and leader who puts the safety and welfare of Canadians first, and that won’t happy under a Liberal, NDP or Green government. In fact it is not even certain it will happen under a CPC government.

      • Canadian Born

        You are right, we don’t have one person in Canada, that has the balls to stop this invasion. As this grows Canada will end up with Sharia law, and it will be our grandchildren that will suffer the most. The welfare of Canadians aren’t even on the agenda from this government.

        • Alain

          It seems that the only slight hope is for this to antagonise the Trump administration enough to invade in order to put an end to it. I would prefer to have our own patriotic party and leader to end it, but I don’t see anyone with that potential at present.

    • G

      How long fire the RCMP turns them back?
      Did you actually say the !! RCMP !!?

      Those gutless, useless bureaucrats won’t do anything to migrants.

      • G

        Sorry jell man I’m ridiculing the cops not you

  • Get used to it, Canadians. You voted for it.

  • Maggat

    All the time, forms filled out, money paid, more waiting, to get my WIFE over here and these pricks waltz across the border into welcoming arms. Oh Canada, where in the hell are you headed.

    • Alain

      Yes, I went through the same thing when I brought my wife here having having married abroad. We also had to show that she had no criminal record and had a clean bill of health along with proof that I could provide for us without becoming a burden on the country. Neither of us was insulted and thought it was just common sense at the time. I should add that my wife gets more than a little annoyed when other immigrants come here and demand to change things for their benefit, refuse to assimilate and worse refuse to learn the language and expect to get all government services in a foreign language.

        Got a friend, his wife is from Poland. Don`t get her started on this bullshit.

        • disqusW6sf

          Do you have opposing thumbs?

  • LairdKintyre

    These stories are positively bone chilling. A remote house in a sparsely populated border region in the dead of night. And a family inside and all of a sudden their backyatd in filled with a dozen or more hungry old desperate people of questionable backgrounds with some desperate men included. It’s only a matter of time before in one of these instances someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed and our Government does nothing. How will you spin that Justin? Will you berate Canadians for defining their families and homes? Will it be considered Islamophobia not to open your home and allow the migrants to do as they please? And what would that Entail? Where will you draw the line when it comes to appeasing these people? Looting? Squatting? Pillaging? Helping themselves to our wives and daughters due to a urgent sexual emergency? Time to do something about this Justin.

    • Alain

      What you describe is already a common occurrence for Americans living in rural areas bordering Mexico. I suggest that as criminal and dangerous as some of those illegal Mexicans, holds of Muslim invaders are worse.

  • Morticiaa

    Who needs laws or borders let them all in.
    Seriously why are they allowed to stay
    USA they should all be sent back
    For USA to deal with

  • Canadian Born

    If the people were smart, they would have pooled together rented a van or bus driven them to Ottawa and dropped them off at the PM’s residence and let Junior deal with it Then charged the government for their time and the cost of the trip. If something isn’t done about this, it is going to get a lot worse.

  • A Hamilton Guy

    He doesn`t give a shit; most of these people don`t vote lieberal.
