Canada should welcome up to 30,000 DACA young people facing deportation in U.S., senator says

Canada could gain from the Trump administration’s decision to end a program that has allowed young, undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States for years, says Ontario Independent Sen. Ratna Omidvar.

In an interview on CBC News Network’s Power & Politics, Omidvar said the program’s beneficiaries are precisely the kind of immigrants Canada should be pursuing for its economic migrant program.

…”On top of that, in order to qualify to be a ‘Dreamer’ you have to have biometrics testing, you have to have a criminality check. So this is America’s loss but it could be Canada’s gain.”

“On top of that, in order to qualify to be a ‘Dreamer’ you have to have biometrics testing, you have to have a criminality check. So this is America’s loss but it could be Canada’s gain.”

That last sentence is pure BS.

  • I want to know why these “Dreamers” didn’t become legal citizens. They’ve had years to apply.

    • Cooler to be illegal?

        Fewer taxes.

          Lower sentences for rape and murder.

      Lots of paperwork, and a green card for them is just as good in their eyes.
      They see themselves as Mexican laborers and are happy to remain Mexican.

      Odd given that this diversity appointment Senator laughingly claims “They speak fluent English, they’ve been educated in the U.S., most of them have been to college or university, some of them have work experience. They understand the North American working culture.”

      • Justin St.Denis

        Wow! Never base policy on presumption. Most sentient western-educated humans know that.

    • Justin St.Denis

      That would take TWO brain cells as well as the ability to rub them together! Not gonna happen. You know the rules. You can’t fix Stupid, but you can give it Canadian citizenship, welfare for life, and a separate set of justice system standards to accommodate their cultural propensity for things this culture deems illegal.

      Think about it.

      If the USA didn’t permit immigration, they never could have had a President Obama!

    • MS 13 are true Democrats!

  • Liberal Progressive

    We need these people and we need them now so that we can teach them enough English so that they can vote Liberal in the next elections!

    • Amen to that.

    • Observer

      That’s wacist to expect them to learn English. They didn’t need it in the US.

      • Etobicoke_Gladiator

        Even less in Socialist Canuckistan. *sigh*

  • ontario john

    But think of all the new Liberal Party voters?? And it will be quite entertaining on the Toronto news, when Latino gangs start fighting with the Black gangs.

    • How could i forget!

    • Justin St.Denis

      Sunlight flashing off the switchblades! It will make for fab news broadcasts once the full national CCTV network is installed and operating. Canadians will get to watch the gang wars, the jihadi attacks, the gang rapes, and everything else all in gorgeous living colour off CCTV feeds. Watching the country crumble into pieces will surely help the Canadian MSM stay afloat for the foreseeable future. And Canadians will be so entertained in the process. There is simply no downside to this, is there?

        ….but I thought diversity was our strength or something like that.

    As much as I’d like to see these illegals in our rear view mirror, what’s the advantage for Canada, other than they are assured of never voting conservative, when they do bother to vote.
    As a group, they will use welfare at about an 80% rate.

    • That’s considered a feature not a bug to our political class.

    30,000 gang bangers? More like 300,000 of them. I say let them all in on one condition:

    1) 1/3 have to live at Rideau Cottage,
    2) 1/3 have to live in Toronto

    3) 1/3 have to live in Ottawa

      The original “modern high-rise apartment building” was designed by LeCorbusier to house indigenous miners in Algeria working for French mining concerns. Thousands of such buildings were adapted (i.e. indoor plumbing, electric wiring, etc) and built across France and Western Europe to accommodate the “working classes”. In more recent years, such slave/drone residential solutions have been repackaged as “condominium living” and rendered fashionable.

      Now look at the evolving skylines of the cities you mentioned. The ease with which large swathes of the population can be managed under such circumstances is very revealing. It explains why – even in smaller municipalities – new developments feature clusters of homes seemingly cramped together on too-small properties. Provincial jurisdictions impose ridiculous population concentration standards on even the most remote municipalities/communities. It’s always been about control, but now it is more nakedly obvious than ever before. Next move, we’re going “off grid” completely.

        That occurred to me when I lived in Saskatoon.
        You can drive across the city in ten to fifteen minutes.
        I remember being on the edge of the city once in an under construction subdivision.
        The lots were tiny and the farmland stretched away in the distance for miles and miles.

      And one third have to live in the North.

    Pardon this graphic image, but no doubt Trudeau is cumming in his pants and frothing at the mouth imagining all the “child refugees” from the wicked fascist Hitler-like Trump entering Canada. Tax increase, oh yeah!!!

  • Oracle9

    When things get uglier in Canada, as they will, every politician who inflicts such policies on this county will, I hope, face the consequences.

    The only understandable motivation for pursing such policy is lust for personal political power. This is the caliber of most leaders today, regardless of political party.

    Why must I feel that I have moved to another country without moving? It used to be that if I wanted to experience some “exotic culture”, I would travel to some foreign land, and if I fell in love with the same I would try to immigrate to the same place.

  • F— you, Omidvar.

    Some of us recognize that when it comes to DACA, President Trump is playing chess, while those who are trying to undermine his presidency are playing checkers.

    By threatening to rescind Obama’s DACA Executive Order in six months Trump has put Congress in a difficult if not an impossible position of having to pass DACA legislation within a 6 month timeframe.

    Further, those Republicans who openly support DACA will be lit up like a fourth of July fireworks display for all Trump supporters to see. These Republicans who are for giving away American jobs to DACA immigrants will without doubt face a challenge for the right to be their district’s Republican representative. Their duplicity will be front and centre for everyone to see and it will be recompensed accordingly.

    Trump has put in place the means to to identify these deplorable hating RINOs and he has put in place the mechanism to replace them with MAGA loving Republicans in future elections. Let’s hope he succeeds.

    Unfortunately, we don’t have a say in the matter. Our dear leader makes all of the decisions.
