Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau found himself in hot-water this week, with the nation’s top politicians demanding he address the escalating border crisis between their country and the United States.
According to Bloomberg, Trudeau is facing a series of “headaches” as illegal immigrants from the US pour across the border fearing potential deportation or criminal charges due to President Trump’s “zero tolerance policy.”
“Last August, more than 5,700 people were arrested crossing illegally into Canada — nearly all in Quebec, where at one point Montreal’s Olympic Stadium was commandeered to help handle the influx,” writes Bloomberg.
“There is a problem at the border, the border must be enforced,” said Ontario’s Immigration Minister Lisa MacLeod. “Ontario should be made whole for all of the costs that we have incurred.”
The border chaos began in January 2017, when the Prime Minister “welcomed” the world’s refugees following President Trump’s inauguration.
“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada,” he wrote at the time.
TRUDEAU TANKS: Canadian Prime Minister SAVAGELY MOCKED for India Trip DISASTER
Canadian Prime Minister and liberal “darling” Justin Trudeau was severely mocked -and at times harshly criticized- for his recent visit to India; with his country’s Indian and Sikh community slamming the left-wing leader’s actions and clothing as “insensitive” and “stereotypical.”
The Canadian First Family’s visit was riddled with cultural and political mistakes from the start; with Trudeau’s wife unknowingly posing for a photograph with a Sikh separatist convicted of an assassination plot against a prominent Indian leader.
“Obviously we take this situation extremely seriously,” Trudeau said after the photograph. “The individual in question never should have received an invitation. As soon as we found out, we rescinded the invitation immediately.”
The criticism went from bad to worse, with many on social media mocking the Prime Minister’s choice of “traditional” clothing; saying “FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood.”

TRUDEAU TURNS: The Canadian PM ‘BLAMES AMERICA’ for Immigration Problems
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is openly blaming the United States for his country’s illegal immigration problem; saying his negotiations to create an “invisible” border wall between the two nations have “fallen apart.”
Trudeau’s dramatic U-turn comes nearly 15 months after the liberal politician “invited” asylum seekers into Canada. Since then, nearly 26,000 migrants have traveled to the country after passing through the United States.

Trudeau first invited the world’s immigrants after President Trump announced his initial “travel ban” from specific, troubled-nations.
“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you,” he tweeted.
The Prime Minister now seeks to change the original law, requiring those seeking asylum in Canada to “first” register with their nation of origin; in this case the United States.
