Due to Trump’s Immigration Crackdown, Immigrants Flock to Canada Instead of the United States
President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown has foreigners flooding to Canada instead of the United States, according to an analysis from Forbes.
Recent data shows that the number of foreigners immigrating to Canada rose a remarkable 26 percent from 2015-2019 while the number of legal immigrants coming into the U.S. fell by 7 percent from fiscal year 2016 and fiscal year 2018. This number is expected to decrease further as Trump continues to enact his agenda, with a potential second term just around the corner.
Meanwhile, Canada is getting ready to open its floodgates for even more immigrants under the far-left rule of chronically blackfaced Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau’s bureaucrats more-or-less boast that the immigrants will be coming in to replace the native population.
“To further ease the challenges of a shrinking labor force and an aging population, our new multi-year immigration levels plan sets out the highest levels of permanent residents that Canada will welcome in recent history,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.
“Canada is benefiting from a diversion of young Indian tech workers from U.S. destinations, largely because of the challenges of obtaining and renewing H-1B visas and finding a reliable route to U.S. permanent residence,” said Peter Rekai, who founded the Toronto-based immigration law firm Rekai LLP.
While there are members of the Trump administration who are pushing for a Canada-style immigration policy, they have not had success with their plotting up to this point. President Trump’s policies on immigration have remained somewhat restrictive.
The recent U.S. Census report implores the country to open the flood gates for many more immigrants, and operatives from Washington D.C. think-tanks are echoing that line.
“Higher international immigration over the next four decades would produce a faster growing, more diverse, and younger population for the United States,” the Census report concluded.
“We desperately need immigration to keep our country growing and prosperous,” according to William Frey, a demographer with the Brookings Institution demographer who writes books on Census data.
“The reason we have a good growth rate in comparison to other developed countries in the world is because we’ve had robust immigration for the last 30 to 40 years,” he added.
Although Wall Street may be thrilled and GDP numbers may look impressive, ordinary Americans continue to suffer at the expense of this “growth” that is ballyhooed by the experts. Bigger corporate profits, helped along by mass immigration, mean lower wages for American workers.
As former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett explained last year, President Trump has shattered economic records because he has ignored the Washington D.C. consensus on how to grow the economy.

Mass immigration would jeopardize the incredible progress made by the Trump economy, despite what the corporate lobbyists may be saying.
