Yet Bahamians have come to the US after the hurricane. What Trump is not allowing (and rightly so) is for them to get TPS. There is no need for TPS when much of the Bahamas is still intact.

Try yet again.

So, what you are saying is that Canada isn't allowing any Bahamians to come to Canada. Got it

Are you saying Canada is not allowing Bahamian refugees stay in Canada?

Is that what you are reading into my posts? If so Reading comprehension isnt one of your main skill set. If Bahamians want to come to Canada i'm sure they will be welcomed.

Then how come Canada is not stepping to take these hurricane refugees? Canadians like to brag about their free healthcare and high standard of living. I am sure these refugees wouldn't mind to settle in your country

Or is this a case of NIMBY?

Wonder how many ASKED to come to Canada, rather than a short ferry ride of fewer than 100 miles away. Can't imagine why they would do that, right?

Why wouldn't they ask to come to Canada? After all, people from all over the world ask to come to Canada. Why is Canada waiting for them to ask instead of offering to take them in?

Maybe Trump should offer some of them jobs at Maralago instead of importing employees from Eastern Europe. They're hiring and always claiming that no Americans will take the jobs. The guy who doesn't like immigration has always hired foreigners. Why not Bahamians?

I heard we're going to send them 10,000 Popeye's chicken sandwiches.

Well it’s tropical storm Humberto. On its present path it will rearrange the rubble on Abaco.

I'm sure if they ask they will be welcomed just like these Syrian refugees were helped https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater .
No building walls or putting kids in cages just humanitarian and respectfull treatment.
