Toronto Sun: “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has finally followed through on a major election campaign pledge – a promise he made not to Canadians, but to Mexicans. As of this week, Mexican travelers are now permitted to enter Canada without a visa.”
“The decision to lift the visa requirement for Mexicans will surely win Trudeau favours with his buddy Enrique Peña Nieto, Mexico’s President. But what will it mean for Canadians?”
Peña Nieto last summer: “Canada and Mexico are fully convinced that international trade and regional integration are the main powerhouses of shared economic growth and social well being.”
All of this got started at the Three Amigos Summit in June where Obama said, “The integration of national economies into a global economy… that’s here, that’s done. The question is under what terms are we going to shape that economy.”
The problems with an influx of illegals remains to be resolved. Citizenship and Immigration Canada reported refugee claims (more than 25% Mexican) increase of about 26% in 2008. The Visa rule was implemented in 2009 and in 2014 the increase had dropped to about 1%.
After Obama spoke news media questions focused on Trump and the possible renegotiation of NAFTA.
Obama: “Unless you are a Native American, somebody somewhere in your past showed up from someplace else, and they didn’t always have papers. We’ve had times throughout our history where anti-immigration sentiment is exploited by demagogues.”
Where did Native Americans come from?
Trump is changing the Obama border and trade rules, something Obama obviously feared at the summit. Why do the Canadians want to sacrifice their country for socialism?
