"Rook" has some thoughts about American refugees.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is getting prepared to accommodate nearly 250,000 American refugees if Donald Trump is elected US president in November. The Prime Minister was keen to stress the possibility of a mass exodus of American citizens on Canadian soil in case the controversial Republican candidate for the US presidency wins his presidential election. “In the event of a mass exodus of American citizens, Canada will always be a hospitable country for people persecuted or fleeing difficult living conditions,” said the Prime Minister at a press conference this morning. “We reach out to refugees of all countries living under dictatorships and persecution,” he reiterated.
Immigration Canada claims to have received more than 350,000 requests for information on Canadian citizenship status since Super Tuesday when Donald Trump won several important states. “The more Trump advances, the more we are overwhelmed,” assures spokesperson for Immigration Canada, Amanda Singh. “Our whole 2016 budget is already gone since it was necessary to enroll extra workforce to successfully process all applications and even then, it is far from sufficient for the task” she admits, visibly under stress. “But Ottawa has promised us its full cooperation on this question,” she assured.
The same can be said for New Zealand and Australia. Between the two countries they have received over one million requests for immigration information, including application forms. Even Iceland has received numerous requests from Americans regarding the rules and requirements for obtaining Icelandic citizenship.
The same response is anticipated by these foreign governments should HRC be elected. The U.S. would be likely to lose Americans to other countries in similar numbers in response to an HRC presidency.
So, under Obama we lost more than a million jobs to other countries. But under either Trump or HRC we may lose more than a million of our citizenry. That will lower the unemployment rate, but will that be an improvement? Probably so, because anyone who would desert their country over a moronic POTUS hasn't been paying attention the last eight years. They will leave by natural selection.
