    Default Canada Says Only 28 Americans Have Applied for Trump-Related Refugee Status

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Before the election, plenty of celebrities—a[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]pledged to pack their bags and take off for Canada if Donald Trump won.


    But since that fateful day, more than a month ago, C[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for Trump-related refugee status. And none appear to have come from Hollywood, despite the large number of celebs who threatened to cross the northern border is Trump became president.


    Canadian officials say that there was a “bump” in requests for refugee status following Trump’s election—or, at least, that there seemed to be a bump in November, which immigration lawyers attribute to the political change.






    “The rhetoric coming from the (U.S. political) discussion… was filled with a lot of concerning language, including hate, exclusion, deportation,” one Canadian immigration lawyer told Canadian state news. “I could see why people would be concerned for their own safety, their own lives, and evaluate whether they could live (there).”


    Of the 28 who applied, it’s possible none will be approved to relocate to America’s northern neighbor. The CBC found only two successful claims for asylum out of hundreds of cases filed from the U.S. since 2010. There was no successful claim out of the 170 filed in 2015.


    If you aren’t fleeing an unjust war, or fleeing actual threat of death, Canada is likely to decline your request. If you’re not applying as a refugee, the Canadian legal immigration process can take about a decade to navigate.


    As for whether any Hollywood celebrities are among the 28 asylum seekers, the Canadian government won’t say, since refugee applications are private. But the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] appear to have stayed put, even under the threat of a Trump Administration.

    Bryan Cranston, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Barbara Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Raven-Symone, Neve Campbell and Chloe Sevigny all seem to still call America home.


    Several, including Cranston, Schumer and Dunham, have now said they were “merely joking”—to the great disappointment of millions of Americans.

    Only 28? Crap. I had hoping for a quarter of a million ...... at least. Sorry Canada.

    28 huh? Not surprising.
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    This remind me of those "piece loving people" who moved to Canada to avoid the draft during the Vietnam war. I made the mistake of voting for Carter (I was rather naive in my youth and not very well informed), Among the many bad decisions that Carter made, one of the worse, was to pardon those who went to Canada to avoid the draft, so while I was risking my life in Vietnam, those "piece loving people" were starting business and making themselves rich while laughing at the USA laws.

    I'd be insulted. Why would Canada want to take them in? Generally, to

    emigrate to Canada, you need money, job skills they want, i.e. show a

    redeeming social value. They are starting to protect their work force.

    Gotta wonder why the Liberals didn't threaten to move to Mexico. Given their opinions on immigration, you'd think they would want to live in a place that's chock-full of Mexicans, and totally run by Mexicans, too. They'd even help make Mexico more diverse!
    "Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon for its work." Isaiah 54:16

    "Now there was no blacksmith to be found throughout all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, 'Lest the Hebrews make themselves swords or spears.'" 1 Samuel 13: 19

    "Each of the builders had his sword strapped at his side while he built." Nehemiah 4:17-18

    "Let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." Luke 22:35-38

    Maybe you've been on vacation for a few years. Liberals don't want to lay down and sleep in their OWN

    mess, they just want YOU to. They don't want to be the victims of their own bad attitudes and outlooks, they

    just want to make sure YOU are.

    SO Mexico would be out, they don't want to live THERE.
