Canada Immigration News: Allegedly Not Accepting Americans Anymore; Asks to Move to Another Country

Canada immigration is experiencing a surge after Donald Trump is proclaimed president elect of the United States. While half of the population who voted for him are celebrating at home, it looks like the other half are looking for a way out.

Prior to the US election, Canada has shared that Canada immigration is more than happy to accept Americans who are not happy with the election results. The idea must have come from the intense rivalry of the Hillary Clinton voters and Trump voters.

Unlike previous elections where whoever wins is accepted as the country’s president, this year is different. Voters who love Clinton hate Trump and vice versa. And we use the word hate not dislike.

For instance, celebrities who are pro-Clinton have said that they will leave the country if Trump wins. Cher even said she’ll leave the planet if Trump becomes president.
