Trudeau welcomes refugees; U.S.-bound passengers turned away

Quote:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau welcomed those fleeing war and persecution on Saturday even as Canadian airlines said they would turn back U.S.-bound passengers to comply with an immigration ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

In pointed tweets a day after U.S. President Donald Trump put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily barred travelers from the seven countries, Trudeau said refugees were welcome in Canada.

"To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada," Trudeau said on Twitter.

A second tweet, also timed to coincide with outrage over Trump's immigration policy, included a 2015 photo of Trudeau welcoming a Syrian refugee at a Canadian airport.

Confusion abounded at airports around the world on Saturday as officials tried to interpret the new U.S. rules.

Trudeau has walked a fine line with the Trump administration, avoiding direct criticism while promoting the progressive policies of his one-year-old Liberal government.

We now have an easy and agreed upon solution. I was kidding before but it looks like PM Zoolander will take them all.

For a long long time.

I want Trump to start building a big wall on your northern boundary too. Just think of how easy it will be for all those jihadist that get into Canada on phoney humanitarian grounds to sneak into your country and commit mayhem.

Apparently you didn't get the memo. All of those US bound passengers with valid visas must now be allowed in by order of a federal court just a short time ago. If the ones in Canada want to use a bus as a mode of transportation to cross the Canadian border into the US they certainly can and will. With no obstruction by any executive orders. You'll probably be seeing them on the roads all weekend.

Riding the bus is cruel and unusual punishment. My company would fly you to the job site by passenger jet and if you got fired, you get a free bus ticket home, to give time to think about what got you fired.

The temporary order only affects those who are at airports being detained who have proper visas, which is estimated around 200. That is a far cry from Trump's order being shot down.
