Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has previously issued a call for Canada to openly accept immigrants.
Now, it seems Canadians are unfavorable of such an invitation.
Per The Hill:
Forty-six percent said they opposed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s handling of increased numbers of undocumented immigrants crossing into Canada through the U.S., while only 37 percent supported his decision and 17 percent did not state an opinion. Forty-eight percent said they were in favor of ramping up deportations of those who entered the country illegally.
That signals a stark increase from a separate Ipsos poll in January, which found that 59 percent supported Trudeau’s policies, and 41 percent disagreed.
The Hill reports the growing opposition to Trudeau’s acceptance of immigrants:
The poll’s findings come as Canada faces an influx of undocumented immigrants from Mexico, who are leaving the U.S. amid fears of President Trump’s long-promised crackdown on illegal immigration.
