Will the U.S. now need to seal its northern border as well as its southern border?
Canada’s prime minister vows to take the refugees that the U.S. will not.
And he does in in a series of passive aggressive tweets – Liberal style!
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday responded to President Trump’s executive order banning refugees and halting immigration from several countries by welcoming those refugees to Canada.
“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada” Trudeau tweeted.

Trudeau has it wrong about persecuting people because of their faith.
National Review gives a break down of fact, and fiction, as it relates to the new vetting process:
First, the order temporarily halts refugee admissions for 120 days to improve the vetting process, then caps refugee admissions at 50,000 per year.
… Second, the order imposes a temporary, 90-day ban on people entering the U.S. from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. These are countries either torn apart by jihadist violence or under the control of hostile, jihadist governments.
… Third, Trump’s order also puts an indefinite hold on admission of Syrian refugees to the United States “until such time as I have determined that sufficient changes have been made to the USRAP to ensure that admission of Syrian refugees is consistent with the national interest.”
… Fourth, there is a puzzling amount of outrage over Trump’s directive to “prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality.”
So, while we fight to close the southern border from illegal immigration and stop the free flow of unwanted terrorists into our homeland, we might just need to do the same thing on the northern border.
It looks like the liberal Canadians won’t be any help in stopping the free flow of possible terrorists to North America.
