The Trump Effect is Working: Canada’s border officials detain record number of Mexicans


Two things are happening here. 
1. The United States is enforcing immigration laws already on the books aka the law of the land.  2. Canadian PM annouced to the world the Canada is welcoming one and all to their country so Mexicans are fleeing to Canada the way draft dodgers did during the Viet Nam era.  Sound like a win-win to me, right?   

NY Post reports Canada’s border authorities detained more Mexicans in the first 67 days of 2017 than they did annually in any of the three previous years, according to statistics obtained by Reuters.

The spike comes immediately after Canada’s federal government lifted its visa requirement for Mexican citizens in December.

Many Mexicans looking north have shifted their focus from the United States to Canada as President Donald Trump vows to crack down on America’s undocumented immigrants, about half of whom are Mexican. On Friday, Reuters reported, immigration judges were reassigned to 12 U.S. cities to speed up deportation.
