Exclusive: Almost half of Canadians want illegal border crossers deported

The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months is becoming a contentious issue in Canada.

Although there has been broad bipartisan support for high levels of legal immigration for decades in Canada, Trudeau is under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants.

He is questioned about it almost every time he appears in parliament, from opponents on the left, who want more asylum-seekers to be allowed in, and critics on the right, who say the migrants pose a potential security risk.

Police Drag Anti-Mass Migration Campaigner Off Streets for Asking Anti-Islamophobia Protestors Questions

Anti-mass immigration campaigner Tommy Robinson was verbally and physically abused by demonstrators on an anti-Islamophobia march on Saturday, after approaching them and attempting to engage in conversation. Police detained him and ordered him off the streets, saying this was “easier” than “taking on” the aggressive protestors.

YouTube faces social media storm over LGBT-blocking ‘restricted mode’

YouTube says it’s looking into concerns about the company’s current “Restricted Mode” — a voluntary feature aimed at blocking mature or potentially inappropriate material, but which is seemingly indiscriminately filtering out content by and about the LGBT community.

Over the weekend, a host of high-profile LGBT artists and creators — including Canadian musicians Tegan and Sara, YouTube stars Tyler Oakley, Rowan Ellis and Gigi Gorgeous — called out the online video company over the restrictions, a feature the company offers “to help screen out potentially objectionable content that you may prefer not to see or don’t want others in your family to see on YouTube.”

Journalists were assaulted by left-wing protesters at Toronto free speech rally

David Menzies, a journalist with The Rebel and Lauren Southern, an independent journalist, were assaulted on Sunday, March 19, 2017 while covering the protest in support of free speech at Toronto’s Nathan Philips Square.

Left wing protesters who participated in a counter demonstration swarmed Menzies and Southern and pushed them out of their area while chanting “Nazi scums”. In both cases Police officers intervened and separated the journalists from the crowd.

UK and European ISPs Now Blocking Jihad Watch — How You Can Combat Online Censorship

Canada is introducing “measures,” specifically in Quebec, to block illegal gaming sites, which I would bet my last Loony on being leveraged in the same way, as soon as they criminalize “Islamophobia,” a.k.a. any criticism of jihad and the violence and crime that go hand-in-hand with Islam.

So today, some Internet providers just block this and other sites, giving the impression that site is “down,” not available, mockingly suggesting, “please try later.” We will be seeing far more of this, and there is little anyone can do to stop this from being implemented further.

Paris: Migrants And Far Left Join Forces, Throw Molotov Cocktails At Police & Smash Up A Bank

Algerian flags mingled with Antifa banners as migrants and left wing extremists gathered on the streets of Paris to attack police and protest deportations in a “March for Justice and Dignity”.

The event was nominally organised to protest alleged police brutality in the case of an individual identified in the media as Theo — but despite that individual speaking out against the escalating violence in France, marchers used the occasion as an opportunity to bombard police with Molotov cocktails and burning flares in extraordinary scenes on Sunday.

Pro-EU rallies gather thousands in dozens of cities across Europe

Thousands of people have gathered in Germany and some other European countries on Sunday for a weekly rally to support the EU against what they see as a threat of political radicalization and nationalism to European unity.

People waving blue EU flags marched in Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologne and dozens of other locations, according to Associated Press and photos posted on social media.

Philadelphia’s Largest Cinco de Mayo Celebration Canceled in Fear of Immigration Crackdown

The decision to cancel El Carnaval, Ramirez said in an interview Friday, was “sad but responsible” in light of the immigration crackdown by federal authorities.

He said the entire Mexican-American community, both those here legally and those undocumented, are disheartened by reports of large-scale arrests and detainments by officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

British Law and Sharia Law

It’s important to talk about the law and to clarify what we mean. If we say “the law” we tend to mean the law of the land. So if I’m in Britain and I say “the law”, I mean British Law, the law that governs Britain.

Upon questioning about the presence of sharia law in the UK, the government response has essentially been that there is no sharia law in the UK. What this means is that because sharia law does not have the weight of state behind it, i.e. the state does not enforce sharia law, there is no sharia law. But there is.

Large march in Paris caps off international weekend of anti-racism

Over 10,000 people demonstrated in Paris yesterday, Sunday, against racism and police violence. The “March for Justice and Dignity” was called by the families of victims of police violence, who are overwhelmingly from black and Arab backgrounds.

Parties of the left also joined the march, as well as trade unions and dozens of local anti-racist and pro-migrant organisations.
