Canadians cool to migrants: Are Canuck attitudes inching closer to Americans'?Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has governed on a platform that has garnered international praise by refugee advocates for its welcoming stance. Four out of 10 respondents to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday said they believed those illegally crossing the Canadian-US border would make the country “less safe.” Forty-eight percent said they supported “increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally,” while 50 percent of Americans support “increasing the deportation of illegal immigrants,” according to a US version of the poll conducted the same week. Legal immigration has enjoyed high bipartisan support in Canada for decades.
