    Ah, the people Trump loves.

    I know Americans are notoriously ignorant when it comes to geography, so perhaps you're unaware that Canada doesn't have a common border with any Latin American countries, or Mexico.

    IT'S NO SECRET THAT U.S. students are horrible at geography and have been for some time.

    Donald Trump has complained that US border troops cannot “get a little rough” with migrants because “everybody would go crazy”.
    The president lamented that his military “can’t act like they would normally act” by being heavy-handed with refugee families.

    He blamed “horrible laws that Democrats will not change” and said he was considering deploying more troops to the Mexico border to stop migrants attempting to cross into the US.

    Speaking to reporters in Texas, Mr Trump said: “I’m going to have to call up more military.

    "But our military, don’t forget, can’t act like a military would act because if they get a little rough, everybody would go crazy. So our military can’t act like they would normally act, or let’s say another military from another country would act.

    COMMENT:-

    It appears that Mr. Trump would prefer that the US Army have the same freedom to kill people in other countries as the IDF does (or the same ability to beat people senseless that the Brown Shirts or Mayor Daley's Chicago Police Department had).
    How would Trump know service members can get rough. Its not like Ol Bone Spurs has first hand experience.
    And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p**sy. You can do anything." –Donald Trump

    For 2019, Canada will be admitting between 42,000 and 58,000 refugees.

    For 2019, the US will be admitting no more than 30,000 refugees.

    Taking the average for the Canadian numbers ([42,000+58,000]/2) , and adjusting for relative population size (37.06Mn vs 327.2Mn), that means that Canada is taking in (proportionately) 14.7 times as many refugees as the US is taking.

    The "Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the United States of America for cooperation in the examination of refugee status claims from nationals of third countries" came into force on December 29, 2004 - when George W Bush was the President of the United States of America would require the government of Canada to reject "Those People" should they travel across the US from the Mexican border and seek refugee status in Canada.

    You really aren't suggesting that the government of Canada should break the laws of both Canada and the United States of America are you?

    Quite right. All that Mr. Trump has to do is to declare war on Mexico and the US military will be able to "defend the United States of America from foreign invasion".

    That's it?

    There were 100,000 border crossers last month, on the US/Mexico border and that's the ones that we know of.

    Looks like Canadians need to step up, or shut up.

    He doesn't even have to do that.

    I only went back five years and I will admit that my search was a very fast scan, but I didn't find a single incident where "Mexicans soldiers/drug cartels henchmen that shoot at our troops". Possibly you'd like to provide links to the many hundreds of such incidents that I know you are aware of but which both the MSM and the US government are concealing from honest, hard-working, patriotic Americans?

    Then again, possibly you wouldn't.

    IF Canada had a border with them then Canada wouldn't be required (by both US and Canadian law) to refuse their requests for refugee status when they show up at the US/Canada border.

    I suppose that that little problem could be fixed by transferring ownership of California, Oregon, Washington and a one mile wide strip along the remainder of the US/Mexico boundary from the US to Canada, but I don't think that that is very likely to happen.

    So, since Canada is already taking (proportionately) over 17 times as many refugees as the US is taking that means that Canada isn't "doing its bit" does it?

    You do realize that, once the US government lets those people into the United States of America (whether on purpose or not), the terms of the laws of Canada and the United States of America PROHIBIT (with some minor exemptions) Canada from granting them refugee status.

    The solution for the US is really quite simple, don't let them into the US and then they can make a legal claim for refugee status in Canada.

    Don't blame Canada (or me) if the Republican administration of George W Bush insisted on, and got, the laws that the Republican administration of George W Bush insisted on and got.
