Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is facing a major backlash over his government’s open door immigration policy, with new polls showing a majority of Canadians view his approach as “too generous” to non-citizens.
According to the Wall Street Journal, a whopping 58% of Canadians view Trudeau’s policies as “too generous,” up 5% from the same time last year.
Even more troubling for Trudeau, nearly two-thirds of those asked -over 65%- say the 30,000 asylum-seekers entering the country from the United States is “too much for the county to handle.”
“Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s open-arms policy on refugees is facing pushback at home,” writes the WSJ. “A poll published Friday by Vancouver-based Angus Reid Institute indicates Canadian anxiety over asylum seekers entering the country by foot from the U.S. has intensified from a year ago”

TRUDEAU IN TROUBLE: Canada Poised to Place REFUGEES in HOTELS as Crisis Escalates
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continued to come under fire this week over his government’s seeming inability to tackle the nation’s swirling refugee crisis; floating a proposal that would place the migrants in hotels throughout the country.
During a last-minute press conference, Trudeau’s critics lashed out at the policy; demanding answers over how many refugees will be placed in hotels, where the hotels will be located, and who will foot the bill.
“The reality is that Justin Trudeau has failed on all of these fronts. Frankly, I believe the Prime Minister has ruined what was once a fair and orderly system that focused on protecting the world’s most vulnerable and aiding their integration into Canada,” said one conservative member of Parliament.
“This is because since January 2017, over 30,000 individuals have illegally crossed the border from the United States into Canada and subsequently claimed asylum in our country,” she added.
Neither Minister Hussen nor Minister Blair can tell us how many people will be put in hotels after crossing the border. #CIMM

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.”
Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now? Also FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood. pic.twitter.com/xqAqfPnRoZ
