Jacques,
Those kids flooding over the southern border are a legacy of the covert and not-so-secret Ronald Reagan / William Casey CIA wars in Central America.
This can all be traced back to Reagan.

Jacques,
I was at Goodwill the other day and I bought the book "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand for 79 cents.
I go through there every week buying books. I thought I'd check it out and see what all the hub-bub was about.
I bought Henry Kissinger's "The White House Years" the last time I was there.
You can find some good books there, but you have to hunt for them.

I wonder if old Jacques and the rest of his fellow Canadians would be receptive to 30K-50K of our poorly educated and fatherless inner city youths from the likes of Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta and Los Angeles crossing the border seeking "refugee" status in Canada?

Never an end to the blame game by you democrats. Actually they are a failure of our leaders to secure our border. We could easily stop the human trafficking if our president believed it was important. He is the leader of the country and has great influence over what priorities the country focuses on. This is just another issue he is using to blame the republican house for the problem. The senate has never been the problem, until of course it is no longer controlled by the do nothing democrats.

I doubt you will find Atlas Shrugged a very good book. Rand is no fan of big government and neither is John Galt. I do hope you read it though. The whole thing. It took me four days.

1. You're way out in left field. I never approved, nor have I lauded this mass illegal immigration of children from Central America to the United States. If you check my posts, you'll even see that I deplored the situation and said something to the effect that I didn't want that kind of situation to happen to anyone;

2. Loose made a very logical comment on the reason why all these refugees. Look it up.

3. I don't know about your situations in Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta and Los Angeles as we don't have anything even close to that here. As "savant" LRS says, "it's all societal". During the Vietnam conflict, we did welcome over 10,000 draft dodgers, agree with it or not. In spite of subsequent draft dodger amnesty by the U.S. gov't, most of them and their children and grandkids are still here.

4. Refugee status in Canada? Did you know, in spite of the fact we don't share a border with a have-not country like Mexico, we welcome more refugees per capita than the U.S. does? Did you know that? I published the figures about a month ago. Toronto, a city of over 3.5 million, has a population comprising over 55% not born in Canada.

Many countries welcome more refugees both in numbers and per capita than the U.S. Did you not happen to see all these North and south-of-Sahara Africans arriving on the tiny island of Lampedusa in Italy? Formidable problem, that.

But, hey, that doesn't mean the U.S. i not doing its share. It is. I repeat, the illegal alien migration to the U.S. from Mexico and Central America is a tragedy, a difficult-to-solve tragedy that I would not wish on any country, particularly not our neighbour the United States.

Canada and the Vietnam War

American war resisters in Canada[edi

See also: War resister

American draft dodgers and military deserters who sought refuge in
Canada during the Vietnam War would ignite controversy among those seeking to immigrate to Canada, some of it provoked by the Canadian government’s initial refusal to admit those who could not prove that they had been discharged from [American] military service. This changed in 1968.[8] On May 22, 1969, Ottawa announced that immigration officials would not and could not ask about immigration applicants’ military status if they showed up at the border seeking permanent residence in Canada.[9] According to Valerie Knowles, draft dodgers were usually college-educated sons of the middle class who could no longer defer induction into the Selective Service System. Deserters, on the other hand, were predominantly sons of the lower-income and working classes who had been inducted into the armed services directly from high school or who had volunteered, hoping to obtain a skill and broaden their limited horizons.[8]

Starting in 1965, Canada became a choice haven for American draft dodgers and deserters. Because they were not formally classified as refugees but were admitted as immigrants, there is no official estimate of how many draft dodgers and deserters were admitted to Canada during the Vietnam War. One informed estimate puts their number between 30,000 and 40,000.[8] Whether or not this estimate is accurate, the fact remains that emigration from the United States was high as long as America was involved militarily in the war and maintained compulsory military service; in 1971 and 1972 Canada received more immigrants from the United States than from any other country.[8]

Draft dodgers[edit]

Estimates vary greatly as to how many Americans settled in Canada for the specific reason of dodging the draft or "evading conscription," as opposed to desertion, or other reasons. Canadian immigration statistics show that 20,000 to 30,000 draft-eligible American men came to Canada as immigrants during the Vietnam era. The BBC stated that "as many as 60,000 young American men dodged the draft."[10] Estimates of the total number of American citizens who moved to Canada due to their opposition to the war range from 50,000 to 125,000[11] This exodus was "the largest politically motivated migration from the United States since the United Empire Loyalists moved north to oppose the American Revolution."[12] Major communities of war resisters formed in Montreal, the Slocan Valley, British Columbia, and on Baldwin Street in Toronto, Ontario.

==========

So, turns out I was wrong. Number is more like 30,000, almost as many as today's Central American refugees. And, not to forget, our population at that time was less than 31 million, a 10th of yours. We had to absorb a large number but hell, we got the cream of the crop.

And don't come back with the usual knee-jerk reaction, to wit, that draft dodgers or war resistors were traitors and cowards. The ensuing debacle proved them right and for that they'll never be forgiven. Being right is not always popular.

One last note : I agree with the war resistors and those that came to Canada. And surprise for you, I ALSO agree with those that stayed, served and risked their lives. True patriots taken advantage of by a gov't that declared war on a non-threatening country based on the fabricated Gulf of Tonkin incident. 58,000 brave men and women who died for nothing. Add almost a million wounded, some permanently.
