Immigration Numbers Matter

As Canadians we often do not appreciate why the level of concern in the US concerning immigration. We should given our own dubious treatment of First Nations, Japanese and Blacks .

To keep it simple I use just two countries and their emigration to the US and Canada. In 2015 there were 3700 immigrants from Egypt , and 2700 from Morocco in Canada. In the US there was  192,000 from Egypt , and 76, 000 from Morocco. In other words 48 times more Egyptians in the US than in Canada and 25 times more Moroccans in the US than in Canada.

Interesting, isn’t it.
