Fearful of Trump’s America, asylum seekers from across the globe stream into Canada

Every hour or so, a taxi pulls up at the end of a remote country road in upstate New York and deposits another load of anxious and weary passengers.

From here, it is steps across a gully to the Canadian province of Quebec, where police stand ready to arrest anyone who enters illegally.

Undeterred, the travelers drag their suitcases across a makeshift dirt bridge, past a sign that declares in French and in English, “No pedestrians,” and surrender to the waiting officers.

    Protip: You aren’t a refugee if you have a luggage set.

    • Observer

      It looks like new luggage.

      • BillyHW

        It’s much more and better luggage than I have. I’m sure their phones are nicer too.

        • Alain

          Same goes for myself and my family members.

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      Most have luggage sets that MATCH!
      WTF!?

      • Alain

        I bet you don’t even have that. I know I don’t.

        • Drunk by Noon ✓

          Just about all my luggage is “family” luggage in that it was purchased over many years (decades), never at the same place, and never the same collection.
          Back in the early 1970’s, you should have seen some of the crap that passed for luggage.

          • Alain

            For the record when I was young and engaged I actually bought a set of expensive matching luggage. Then after our wedding in Japan we went to Guam for the honeymoon where all my expensive matching luggage was stolen at the airport. Fortunately I had our passports, money and important documents in a separate carry-on type bag with me at the time. We never recovered the luggage nor the contents which were a lot of brand new outfits for both of us. The airlines only allowed us to purchase a cheap suitcase and some local cheap cloths for the stay, but we both decided that we would not allow that to spoil what was a great honeymoon. The hotel was great, the beaches clean and the ocean so clear without pollution. Had a wonderful time in spite of the unfortunate event upon arriving. Since then I never bothered to invest in expensive luggage much less matching luggage and furthermore have never had any of it stolen.

    Who built the “makeshift dirt bridge” – the RCMP?

    • Watchman

      One of the most well known and easiest ‘refugee’ crossing points to Canada is about 3 miles west of Champlain, NY and the official Blackpool border crossing: https://www.google.com/maps/@45.0073777,-73.5172265,16.96z?hl=en

      Easy to get to, apparently the local cab companies seem to know it, not too far from a large town, and more importantly not an official border crossing but now has Canadian border officials permanently there ready to detain crossers without first officially denying them entrance.

      As you can see from the map, at one time in the past Roxham road allowed vehicles to drive between the US and Canada, until the road was ripped up and turned into a ditch across the road and the dirt piled up at the ends of the cut. There is no bridge needed, but obviously some has dumped some gravel there to make it easier for foot traffic. The stones in the foreground were originally put there as part of the vehicular deterrence.

  • The Deplorable Rosenmops

    Grow a pair Trudope, and turn these grifters back at the border.

    • Liberal Progressive

      The only issue is if they have liberal Canadian values. If they’ll vote Liberal then we’ll take them all!

      • The Deplorable Rosenmops

        Of course.

  • Liberal Progressive

    Thank goodness we aren’t racists so we will give them free health care, free dental care, free furniture and government housing or senior housing ahead of those lazy Canadians.

    • BillyHW

      I suspect you’re still slightly racist. Off to the re-education camp with you!

      • Liberal Progressive

        But I just came back and the Young Liberals say that I am now thinking correctly!

        • BillyHW

          That’s what all filthy racists say!

          • Liberal Progressive

            I’m Sorry. I’ll call the party and leave a message for them to come and pick me up again.

          • Liberal Progressive

            You were right.

            I talked to Liz Jackson from the Young Liberals and she told me to not think about racism and if I did that proved I was a racist!

            So time for some re-training.

    The fleebags must have heard how much Justin loves diversity.

    • J. C.

      The only thing `diversity` leads to is higher taxes, bedbug-infested hotels, and eventual riots and terrorism…

    Welcome to Trudeau’s Sunny Ways Canada. Where border controls don’t exist, and the police will even help you over the border. But if your grandma wants to fly to Saskatoon, she is strip searched at the airport. And the media and political elites, will make sure if your a border invader, you will get everything free.

  • Ed

    “…The husband, who said he would be returning to Sudan to tend to business interests there, scooped up the children for a farewell squeeze, then wiped tears from his face as he watched them walk to the border with their mother.”

    Classic definition of a refugee. Going to Sudan to tend to business interests, and back when it suits his fancy.

    We’re idiots.

    • Alain

      No need to ask what that business interests would be. It is the Sudan and there is only one thriving business there.

  • barryjr

    Just put them on the first plane back to wherever they came from. Take the money wasted on these invaders and give it to needy Canadians.

    • Alain

      No need to spend money on their airfare; just prevent them from crossing the border. That really is not that difficult to do.

      • shasta

        Perhaps the Canadian army has a few Lewis guns left over from ww1 that could be put to good use.

    They are fearful their government handouts in the USA are far lower than what they will be given in Canada.

    • Gary

      They want to enjoy the benefits in Canada before they turn it into the $hit-hole swamp the crawled out from and then find another SUCKER-nation they can BILK. .

  • LairdKintyre

    My forefathers have been here for centuries. Fighting for British North America and the Dominion of Canada, and building this great nation. I find it an affront to men like my forefathers that this disgusting invasion is allowed to happen. Its time Canada and the USA joined forces to detain these people. Find out who they are, bar them from future entry and send them back to where they belong

  • LairdKintyre

    These invaders come in taxi cabs and get put up in hotels. My forefathers came here in masted wooden ships when men wore tricorn hats and they hewed their homes out of trees they felled themselves. Thesr people arent what Canada needs

  • Gary

    Just wait until the ISIS supports in the USA see how easy it is the drag a suitcase bomb across our border and slaughter hundreds of people plus our Military and Border guards in a confined area.

    I would never allow an illegal in the USA to cross the border towards me with a large package or suitcase because it would mock all the Security at airports where carried objects must be examined.
    There are Human Rights law the Job safety laws where an employee can refuse work if it can get them killed or injured.

    Justin is a coddled moron that doesn’t believe that there is evil on Earth because he grew up in a wealthy white area and went to White schools and married into a White french catholic family.
    He would dare marry a muslim palestinian sunni muslim or Black muslims because he’s a closet-racist like almost every white Liberal in His party while the Muslim MP’s are homophobiic jew-haters . Maryam Monsef is a jew-hating homophobe from Iran that has NEVER denounce her homeland stoning women to death or hanging gays in public.
    She committed Citizenship fraud when she LIED as a ” refugee ” from Afghanistan that fled on a donkey and made it to Canada.

    • John Boy

      MP and Trudeau-confidant Omar Alghabra was the head of the Canadian Arab Federation who says that Hezbollah and Hamas are not terrorist organizations and who previously expressed an open hatred of Jews.

  • Oracle9

    Canada’s back! In Justin’s image. To hell with the rule of law.
