Mayor Francis asks the feds for help to deal with influx of Mexicans
Doug Schmidt and Dave Battagello, The Windsor Star
Published: Wednesday, September 19, 2007

With city shelters filled and a surge of further refugee claimants expected to flood into Windsor, Mayor Eddie Francis is pleading for financial help from Ottawa.

"When there is a possibility of adding thousands to the local social assistance system as a result of refugee claimants crossing the border into Windsor, we will become overwhelmed and our current resources will not suffice," Francis wrote in a letter sent Wednesday to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Good!!! Now Canada can have some of that which they keep trying to tell our country to accept. Now they will find out how much those people will cost them and it won't be that long before some Canadian citizens start screaming about the people they want the U.S. to take in without bitching. They will learn soon enough the problems they will have.

Get the word out to all of the illegals that they can seek refuge in Canada. Provide maps to the border crossings and the welfare offices up there. That will save the US money from having to deport them and then Canada can reach a sort of diversity nirvana with the influx of newcomers. It is a win-win in my opinion.

I hope we drive them all up there. It would serve them right.

Oh wait! Didn't they go up there to do the jobs no Canadian would do? LOL
