Pat Gray Unleashed

A Canadian member of Parliament issued a Trump-like warning to immigration lawyers in California

Canada is warning illegal immigrants in the United States to refrain from crossing their border illegally warning that the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will, in fact, deport them not to the United States, but to their country of origin.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unleashed Pablo Rodriguez, the whip for the majority Liberal Party in Canadian Parliament, to a room filled with immigration lawyers and immigrant rights leaders in California to warn them not to encourage their clients to cross into Canada illegally.

"Get the facts and make a decision based on the right facts, before leaving your jobs and taking your children out of school and going up there hoping to stay there forever," he warned. "Because if you don't qualify … you will be returned, and, in this case, not to the United States. You will have lost your status and would be returned to your country of origin."

Apparently, immigration officials in Canada are worried that Trump's fierce immigration policy in the United States will propel more illegal immigration to Canada -- something the Canadian government is proactively trying to avoid specifically referencing the instance in which thousands of Haitians lost their status in the U.S. ad crossed into Canada creating havoc and backlog.

The irony of it all is that Rodriguez said that while Canada is "an open country" immigration must be done legally. Isn't that what Trump has been saying?

"You can't just come to Canada and cross the border and stay there the rest of your life," he said. "We want to avoid a humanitarian crisis along the border."
