Trudeau’s Reckless Refugee Tweet Hurt Manitoba


The tweet received an overwhelming response, with over 427,000 retweets and 779,000 likes. It helped establish Trudeau as the “nice” guy, in contrast to the “mean” Donald Trump.

There’s only one problem:

Simply put, our immigration system does not welcome everyone. If that were the case, we wouldn’t have border guards and we wouldn’t have a border services agency. The whole idea behind the existence of an immigration department is to decide who can enter our country and who cannot.

The facts are that some people will be welcomed, and some people won’t be. No country can afford to just let everyone in.

That’s why Trudeau’s tweet was an example of virtue-signalling. He got to show how “open” and “kind” he was, without taking real actions.

    I cannot express how much I loathe this poseur.

    On the bright side, for the few who are deported they’re going to be pretty surprised when it’s back to their homeland and not just back to the States.

    2019. It can’t come soon enough. PM Kellie Leitsch and President Donald Trump standing together will be a magnificent and long awaited sight for us all.

    I have 2 questions:

    Why are the Horsemen assisting the illegals over the border?

    WTF is with the $840 million to Syria? What is the significance of this particular number?

        I think the numbers mean something, like significant dates on the Muzz(lunar) calendar. Apparently 9/11 and 7/11 had such significance. A lot of the dollar amounts on the list you provided are not rounded. They look strange, therefore I think they have some kind of meaning. Also things get complicated when you wonder if the posted amounts have been expressed in Canadian $. International transactions are usually done in US$ and the Canadian $ has been trading down since Trudeau came to power.

      With every donation overseas, it appears as though Trudeau pulls the figure out of his a$$. And they are always in the 100’s of millions. We don’t have enough money to help Canadians with good medical care or enough food or affordable housing, but we can borrow the money to send to Crapistan.

        In addition to squeezing every last nickel out out of Canadians, they are also selling our gold. You are aware that we no longer have any gold reserves?

        • k1962

          I do recall that.

  • F—ing idiot.

    You take them in, Justin, and pay for them with the money you inherited from your dad.

    These illegal border crossings have been happening for years. It really is nothing new.

    With that said there was a noticeable uptick in the numbers of crossings after the election of the Liberals and well before Trump was elected. It seems the Harper Conservatives were a deterrent.

    So yes, Trudeau and the Liberal government is wholly to blame for the current wave of illegal border crossings. They practically invited them to come and those crashing our border saw them for being the weak, incompetent buffoons they are. And a Somali in the role of Minister for Immigration doesn’t help either.

    The question is what are they going to do about it? I predict they’ll drag their feet on this issue for long as they can in hopes it will go away so they don’t have to do anything in fear of hurting their immigrant vote base. And then they will continue to ignore it all the while lie to us that we have a properly functioning immigration system and our borders secure.
