Will US need to seal the northern border too? Justin Trudeau thumbs Trump in the eye with open invite and a photo

President Donald Trump may want to think hard about sealing the northern border with Canada following a statement Saturday from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump signed an executive order Friday to keep “radical Islamic terrorists” from entering the U.S., temporarily halting refugee admissions for 120 days to improve the vetting process and barring refugees from war-torn Syria. The order also temporarily bars travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Trudeau took to social media to welcome these refugees.

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada,” Trudeau tweeted.

The liberal prime minister followed that tweet up with a photo of himself offering a warm smile as he greets a small girl — never mind that it’s “15-year-old teens” with full beards that are of more concern.

As for Trump’s hard line stance with the media, Time offers a great example of why the president feels the need to call the press out.

In an article reporting on Trudeau’s actions, Time’s Katie Reilly wrote:

“Trudeau’s stance on immigration stands in stark contrast to Trump’s. Canada has said it will allow 300,000 immigrants to enter the country in 2017.”


The only problem with that statement is that the U.S. allows over 1 million legal immigrants to enter the country each year.

And Canada has its own strict immigration policies.

More from the Daily Caller News Foundation:

A top law firm known for obtaining Canadian visas for U.S. citizens says there are three main ways to get in: by having in-demand job skills, by owning a business or having a high net worth, or by having relatives already there.

Canada’s official immigration page also sets a high bar, listing opportunities to “immigrate as a skilled worker,” “immigrate by starting a business and creating jobs” or “immigrate by investing in the Canadian economy.” […]

It also maintains a refugee category, but targets people who have already been displaced “outside their home country,” and not those who want to move from their home country to Canada.
