CANADA – The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau plans to accept and accommodate more than 250,000 American refugees in case Donald Trump is elected as US president.
The Prime Minister was keen to stress the possibility of a mass exodus of American citizens on Canadian soil in case the controversial Republican candidate for the US presidency wins his presidential election.
“In the event of a mass exodus of American citizens, Canada will always be a hospitable country for people persecuted or fleeing difficult living conditions. We always reach out to refugees of all countries.” said the Prime Minister at a press conference this morning
Immigration Minister, the Honorable John McCallum, expects up to 1,000,000 American refugees by 2017 if Donald Trump is elected president.
Reportedly, Immigration Canada claims to have received more than 350,000 requests for information on Canadian citizenship status since Super Tuesday when Donald Trump won several important states.
“The more Trump advances, the more we are overwhelmed,” assures spokesperson for Immigration Canada, Amanda Singh. “Our whole 2016 budget is already gone since it was necessary to enroll extra workforce to successfully process all applications and even then, it is far from sufficient for the task” she admits, visibly under stress.
Several celebrities including Miley Cyrus, Macaulay Culkin and Nicolas Cage have threatened to leave the country in case of a victory by Donald Trump.
“If Trump is elected, it makes me sad, but I have no choice,” commented Miley Cyrus to the Rolling Stones magazine this week.
“I could never live under a president like him, it would be like living under the Soviet dictatorship of Hitler,” she explained.
According to latest reports, a number of celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Kanye West have shown interest in purchasing houses in the Toronto area and have already contacted real estate agents.
