Who Has a Harder Time Getting Into Canuckistan . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
. . . Islamic Terrorists or American Citizens?
If you answered the former, think again. If you answered the latter, you know our America’s neighbors to the north, well.
The fact is that while thousands of Muslims with terrorist backgrounds continue to flood into Canada, due to its lax immigration laws and lack of sufficient background checks (even more lax than our own in America), Canadians are getting tough on the evil, dangerous . . . Americans!:

Americans are finding it increasingly difficult to get into Canada, as border agents with better access to American criminal databases are turning people back for offenses ranging from assault to drunken driving to shoplifting. . . .
“An indiscretion can be anything from a DUI to when you were 18 and scalped tickets to a Red Wings game.” . . .

Randy Kutter, a firefighter from Princeton, Minn., had been taking fishing trips to Canada his entire life. But Canadian border agents barred him in 2005 because of two DUI convictions in the 1980s.
“I couldn’t fault any nation for trying to protect their borders,” Kutter said. “I think that people who have paid their debt to society need to be forgiven at some point.”
Although the United States has similar access to Canadian records the policy here does not appear to be as stringent. Michael Friel, a spokesman with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says convictions for crimes like DUI, simple assault, disorderly conduct and breaking and entering do not make a person inadmissible to the United States.

Yup, this is the country that allowed many malefactors, like the Khadrs–a family of Bin Laden advisors and mujahideen (one of whom, Omar Khadr, is at Gitmo for trying to murder Americans), to enter, no questions asked. But when it comes to Americans, if you stole a pack of gum when you were 15, stay home, eh?!
If only our border agents, the guys from Customs and Border Protection, were allowed by higher-ups to be this tough. Or at least tougher on admitting Muslims–a significant portion of whom wish to do harm–into our midst.
Well, no-one ever accused Canad of not having a problem setting its national security priorities straight. This is the country, after all, that recently hauled conservative Ezra Levant to a star chamber to be inquisitioned over publishing Danish Mohammed cartoons.
Priorities, priorities.
“(Un)Welcome to Canada.”

That begs the question: Why would anyone want to go to Canada? Their health care? I can’t think of any reason, really. I’ve been to Toronto, Montreal and Quebec. Ho hum. Although I hear that Vancouver is beautiful and very un-Canadian. In other words, interesting.

If they can keep Americans out based on minor misdemeanors, it’ll be a lot easier to get appointments in cities like Buffalo if we return the favor and screen out all the Canadians escaping their perfect health-care system.

You guys are ridiculous. The US has has the exact same laws for Canadians entering the US. Not one Canadian can enter the US with a criminal charge, including dui, assault. (unless it is pardoned, which is a painstaking long ordeal) Maybe the guy who got two DUI’s shouldnt be driving in the first place. I know I don’t want to be on the road when he is.
And why come to Canada….beautiful scenery, national parks, fishing, shopping (well not so much with the weak American dollar), economic boom in the west, and yes our FAR superior health care. I could go on and on. Canada is a great country and please don’t be so ignorant in your posts. And Debbie, you have many Canadian fans, I don’t know why you would profile Canada into a Pro Terrorist Nation. You realize there are more Canadian troops in Afghan than any other NATO country.

Ya take the good with the bad in life. Tundra Tabloids reports that Canada has announced that it will be pulling out of the UN-sponsored Durban II conference.

The US Immigration guy is dead wrong. Nobody can get into the USA if they have a DUI. Pardons are possible, but Osama himself would have an easier time getting into the USA than somebody with a DUI.
