Oh, so Canada got 400,000 asylum seekers flooding their southern border in a span of about 7 months? I did not know that. I am sure Canada would welcome and open their border for 400,000 people in that time span a d let them join 11,000,000 illegal aliens currently existing in their country

Those syrian refugees probably had to stay in a refugee camp for years somewhere in Turkey and vetted religiously by UNHCR before Canada gave them travel docs to immigrate to Canada.

But It's totally the same thing like whats going on at US/Mex border, right?

No trouble at all. It is another dud with nothing more than rain.

In most of the USA, people affected by storms etc, band together to help rebuild. They move in with relatives or others and start rebuilding. These people run away? Who do they think is going to rebuild for them?

For, example, back in the 80s, the Soviets were sending Jewish people to the US. The US government kept asking synagogues to sponsor these refugees. At first the synagogues were happy to help. Then it got to the point where they were getting so many refugees that it burdened them both financially and emotionally---thus compassion fatigue. To add insult to injury, it was later found out that many of these people sent here weren't Jewish at all. It turned out that the Soviets dumped a good number of their prisoners on us. The end result of that is an active Russian mafia in Russian neighborhoods in NYC.

Time for your country to step up its game.
These Canadians on C-D remind of me when I was living & working in SE Asia(mostly Vietnam and Cambodia). When I was first arrived there, I was shocked to see how many homeless children on the street begging for money and food. It is something you don’t see back home in America. At first I was very generous by giving those kids money and buying them food, but as time goes by I started to realize hey I cannot continue to give those kids money or I will be homeless myself when I run out of money. Then I realized & understood why the local people do not care about the homeless kids.

Canadians on C-D act all high and mighty because they are not sharing a border with Mexico, or have 11 million illegal aliens living in their country, or have 400,000+ asylum seekers flooding their border in a span of several months. This is why they act high and mighty because it is not happening to them.

The World Isn’t Ready For Climate Refugees

"Rising sea levels, wildfires, drought or a slow-moving hurricane can all threaten your way of life as surely as a bomb. But unlike victims of war for whom the causes and effects of the threats are clear and codified, there are no protections for environmental migrants."

Nope:
Why some Hurricane Dorian survivors are staying on Abaco: ‘We believe in bouncing back.’

“Everybody just can’t leave,” said Cornish, driving past water-clogged vehicles with missing windows, brown vegetation and collapsed houses on the lonely stretch. “I am going to stay and try to build, put it back together. I am an Abaconian. We believe in bouncing back.”

The Bahamas are part of the British commonwealth counties.. let them handle it and take in refugees and help rebuild. The US needs to give humanitarian aid if asked but nothing more.
