A terrorist can enter Canada as a refugee, and then be smuggled across the border which is far less secure than the Mexican border.
Absolute BS.

This blame Canada stuff is really getting tired. Even the comedy video posted by freak80 gives a nod to this phenomenon, when it jokes about the power failure, immediately blaming Canada when in fact it was caused by facilities in the US. The same with the lies that the 9/11 hijackers came through Canada.
On that note. Canada does not go around blaming other countries for people that the let into our country. We take responsibly for our borders, but you don't seem to want to do that for yours. It's simple, but here you go. YOU guys are responsible for WHO you let in. Not us. However, if you would like to let Canada take over your borders, we probably would be doing a better job.

Your " concerns " belong in the same comedic pile.

Are New Yorkers allowed to speak?

They experienced the horrors of 9/11 up close and personal, yet overwhelmingly reject Dump, and his idiotic bigoted policies.

By painting a dystopian picture of the "hellholes" Blacks and Latinos live in - - dog whistle garbage meant to trigger negative images of people of color? Don't make me laugh.

Maybe we should be asking what the track record is for terrorist events in the US...where did the perps enter North America?

I can't think of any who came through Canada...

There was one failed attempt to cross one of the land crossing into the US. He was stopped from entering.

Well let's see; those who brought down the towers were all in the U.S. on visas and none entered through Canada. Those committing a disproportionate number of violent crimes were among some 13 million who snuck across their southern border but, in the typical American need for a scapegoat; Canada is in the crosshairs.

EDIT: I want to add that the ACLU opposes the real ID for the same reason conservatives oppose it, for privacy concerns.

My personal views on a national ID have changed. I previously opposed it, but the Democrats National ID would have been a good thing in hindsight. Having biometric data of ever American would be great and it's absolutely necessary in the modern age.
You're wasting your breath with those who use the silly 'liberal vs conservative' pejorative nonsense to support any argument. They've not grown beyond nor learned "your mamma wears army boots" is the stuff of infantile boobs.

A unified biometric system of fingerprinting and/or retina scans is something all of North America could/should sign onto if it mean't streamlining the crossing from the subjective nonsense we tolerate now.

Like I said, it doesn't matter what Trump does, you haters will hate on him anyway.

If he included more countries, you'd complain. If he included less countries, you'd complain. If he included all countries, you 'd complain. If he included no countries, you'd complain.
Seems you righties have a dilemma, you hate Mexicans,you hate Muslims,,you hate women, you hate blacks,you hate the gay community and recently i'm seeing a hate Canada trend, and your hate for Liberals has become psychotic ,and you have the paranoid view that every one is hating on you weird distortions in the alternate reality.
