I honestly never really cared who won the presidency. I didn't think it would have that much of an impact on us in Canada. But then the immediate
executives orders in the last month seems to have fcked with our country either directly or indirectly. Directly, trying to renegotiate NAFTA. He says
he wants to mostly change things about Mexico, but we have our doubts. Around 30 states have Canada as their #1 trading partner, so any change without
a clear plan going forward makes people nervous.
Indirectly, immigration and bans. I wonder do people in America still believe Mexicans are crossing the border en masse? There are a lot of central
and south Americans coming over your border, however I do believe the rate of Mexican immigration is in the negative, and has been for a couple of
years. To quote a South Park border patrol agent "awh we didn't want Obama to make it so #ty Mexicans wouldn't want to live here anymore(while they
jump the fence to get back to Mexico)"
Well seems Trump has scared enough people and made things #ty enough that people are illegally pouring over the Canadian border. And now we have to
deal with your immigrants and refugees. We have our own immigrants and refugees that we put through a system. Our country has a small population, we
can't handle the volume and we're also not used to fiercely guarding our southern border. These people are asylum seekers and we can't necessarily
turn them away. My point is Trump just indirectly caused a huge border problem for us that we did not see coming.

The last two things I talked about don't really bother me that much. This next one bothers me so god damn much. The article for the story is below. In
a nutshell: a born and raised Canadian citizen with no criminal record was denied entry into the United States. She isn't on any watch list. The only
explanation, which even she was very reluctant to believe, for her being denied entry is her brown skin. I mean even if she was being racially
profiled, she's of Indian descent, not Arab. Also she was with two white girls. She was detained for 6 hours, fingerprinted and photographed for no
I am 100% certain that when I cross the American border I can go on vacation or visit family without an immigration visa and without problems. I say
this because I'm a white male who speaks English, but I thought the same would be true for all Canadians. I mean we let your 18-20 year olds come up
here and drink before their legally allowed, least you could do is let a Canadian-Indian girl and her friends go down to a spa for the day you

It's the combination of things that bother me. I mean you cause this huge immigration problem for us on our borders that we're stuck dealing with. And
now you won't let our naturally born citizens visit your country? [SNIPPED]
