Trump’s Immigration Crackdown Driving Illegal Immigrants To Canada
The recent crackdown on 7-Eleven stores sent an electric shock through the American economy that was felt all the way up to the Canadian border. As Trump cranks up pressure on employers hiring undocumented aliens, those undocumented aliens and others who are losing their status in the U.S. are looking for alternatives. One such promising alternative, at least according to recent trends, has been to migrate to Canada.
There is no doubt Trump is cracking down on immigration. The other day, President Trump decided to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for some 200,000 Salvadorans. A similar fate appears to be awaiting Hondurans in the United States. Previously Haitians and Nicaraguans had their TPS cancelled. What is more, recently, at a United Nations conference addressing global migration, U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley announced that the United States would not be continuing with the U.N. global compact on migration – another move in the Trump administration’s lock down on immigration policy.
