The issue of illegal immigration is a very difficult one that requires difficult decisions be made. No matter how much we "love" people, or how
much respect we have for them, the truth is that borders are necessary for a country to survive, and as such mass illegal immigration can cause many
problems. Many people on the left feel that Trumps immigration policy is inhumane, and feel that we need to act with compassion to the illegals
(which I do agree we should treat everyone with as much compassion a possible while enforcing our laws).
I have think that I may have came up with a solution to the illegal immigration problems of the United States. Probably the most progressive leader
of a country in North America is Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada. He has vowed to treat illegals with respect and compassion, and has even
personally accepted refugees. This is great! Now granted, estimates show that Canada has less than 300 thousand illegals (from all the info I could
find), but Trudeau is compassionate and knows that these are good people that will help his country.
The solution is simple; take all of the 11 million illegals in the US and humanely and comfortably ship them to Canada! There would be no splitting
up of families, everyone can go! Think of the benefits to the illegals. They would now be in a progressive paradise that would treat them with
respect, give them free health care, guaranteed standards of living, and have a leader that absolutely loved them. And the people of Canada will have
open arms, and won't be like some of the racists in the US that want to control illegal immigration!
And Canada would benefit too! Many progressive defenders of illegal immigration in the US say how much illegals help the economy and how they
increase diversity which is a strength. Why should the US reap all of these benefits? Lets be generous neighbors and share this wealth with
I know people would feel this is unprecedented, but its not. Just this week, Mexico has offered transit visas for African migrants in their country
to travel to the US.
But this is ok because they would be better off in the US. So by the same standard, if the 11 million plus illegals would be better off in Canada,
why not send them there? Canada is so progressive, it is clearly a better place for these illegals to be.
And Canada has already taken steps to relax its immigration stance under Trudeau.
Trudeau has even joked that he would welcome Americans fleeing the US if Trump wins.
So surely he would be willing to take the illegals that Trump would be unfair to.
Ultimately, I think this would be a win for both Canada and the illegals immigrants. This would also be a victory for progressive ideologies, as it
would no doubt show how these illegals make Canada a much better place.
With all of this in mind, I don't see how this isn't a win for all parties involved.
