Thousands of Refugee Immigrants Moving to Canada From Minnesota

Donald Trump has had focused much of its pre-poll campaign on the points of border management of the US. After being sworn as the president of the United States he is trying to live up to his promises and turn them in to reality. Trump took the charge to impose strict regulation to control immigration in the country and stretch tight regulations for refugee immigrants.

He also targeted to impose an executive ban order for immigrants from the seven Muslim majority countries, namely, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen. Minnesota, a midwestern U.S. state bordering Canada and Lake Superior, holds a reputation for welcoming refugee immigrants.

The number of refugees in this largest lake based region also include those coming from the seven above mentioned Muslim major countries. Donald Trump’s executive order has already set a sense of fear of deportation to the countries from where they actually hail. Many of them have begun fleeing to Canada, illegally immigrating to a small Manitoba town, Emerson, which is just across the border to claim refugee status.
