Well there ya go.........but as the Wizard of Oz said, "Not so fast, NOT SO FAST"

"However, Mendicino's spokesperson said that Canada only resettles refugees that have been referred by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, adding a complication to the Canadian government's willingness to assist the U.S."

"I certainly think that we have the capacity within our existing levels plan to accommodate more refugees," Canadian Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino toldReuters.

However, Mendicino's spokesperson said that Canada only resettles refugees that have been referred by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, adding a complication to the Canadian government's willingness to assist the U.S.

The Biden administration faces a worsening situation at the southern border, with no end in sight for migration to the U.S. Since Feb. 1, approximately 630,000 people have attempted to cross the southern border illegally, according to federal data.

ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING ATTEMPTS REACH NEW HIGH UNDER BIDEN: 180,000 IN MAY

Of that figure, more than 275,000 were from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Another 243,000 were from Mexico, and the remaining 111,000 were from countries other than those four. The U.S. government does not disclose how many may have already claimed asylum nor who will seek permission to stay in the country after being released here.

Biden has vowed to accept 125,000 refugees from around the world in fiscal 2022, which begins in October. Canada's 2021 cap is 36,000.

Mendicino and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas spoke last week for the first time since Biden took office. In their call, they discussed their migration and border goals.

Imagine - a country that actually exercises soverign authority over who does or does not enter their country. I never heard of such a thing.

Looks like Canada doesn't want thousands of destitute and unskilled welfare seekers, many of them carrying diseases, also many of whom are trafficking drugs, women, and kids. Once here, they remain in hock to the cartels, who are financing all this rush to the border

The interesting side effect of what Biden is doing that had to have been unforeseen by the regime is the accelerating rush of Hispanics already here to the GOP a trend Trump had focused on.  The GOP won three Texas mayor elections in McAllen,Arlington, Ft. Worth.  Democrats may want them to move on to Canada now.

Well, the headline catches attention.  That's the important thing.  Who bothers with details?

Will Mendicino look the other way if Mayorkas flies illegal aliens into Canada and then flies an empty plane out like they've done in American states?

This is my favorite passage of the article. 125K + 36K = 161,000

So... what to do with the rest... what to do, what to do?

I've made the suggestion that America seed the Rio Grande with a whole bunch of Salt Water Crocodiles, which can in fact flourish in fresh water.   Put heavy barriers in place to contain them in specific areas of the river and finish the border wall to eliminate the possibility of them migrating inland.   They're among, if not the largest crocodile and are the most aggressive obviously having a really big appetite.

My other suggestion was deemed too harsh.  I thought it was very good and environmentally sound.  Build a bunch of catapults and provide any that get across the river a free ride back home.

Well I understand there's an individual with very large home with an ocean that's a proponent of the open borders America endures.

Note that on a country population per capita basis, the existing population of the USA is about 10 times that of Canada - so Canada's cap of 36,000 is actually a ratio of three times that of the USA.

Yeah, but they aren’t then going to also take in five times that amount in illegal aliens who will enter whether they get refugee status or not. Makes it a lot easier to be generous.

What - you didn't know that Taco Bell was voted as the best Mexican restaurant in the U.S. in 2018 and 2019?

Is Taco Bell Mexican???  NO  NO  NO

Taco Bell was founded by  Glen Bell , an entrepreneur who first opened a hot dog stand called Bell's Drive-In in  San Bernardino, California  in 1948. Bell watched long lines of customers at a Mexican restaurant called the Mitla Cafe, located across the street, which became famous among residents for its hard-shelled tacos. Bell attempted to reverse-engineer the recipe, and eventually the owners allowed him to see how the tacos were made. He took what he had learned and opened a new  stand  in 1951. The name underwent several changes, from Taco-Tia through El Taco, before settling on Taco Bell. [5]

Glen Bell opened the first Taco Bell in 1962 in  Downey, California . [6]

In 1964, the first  franchisee  opened, in  Torrance, California . In 1967, the 100th restaurant opened at 400 South Brookhurst in  Anaheim . The first location east of the  Mississippi River  opened in  Springfield, Ohio  in 1968. [7] [6]  Original Taco Bells featured walk-up windows only, with no indoor seating or drive-thru service. In 1970, Taco Bell went public with 325 restaurants.

It is presently owned by PepsiCo.

Of course it's not real Mexican food!

If I want authentic Mexican food, I go to the Mexican Bakery down the street from me where only one of them speaks English fluently. Or... there's always the Taco Truck that parks down by the local steel mills that comes out of "Mexican Town" in Detroit. 

If I want authentic Middle Eastern / Mediterranean food, I go to Dearborn, MI where the majority of the staff speaks Arabic and broken English... or ask my daughter's stepmom to hook me up, because she's Lebanese. 

I suppose Dearborn ruined me in regard to Middle Eastern cuisine, that and working with Chaldeans and Lebanese people. I have yet to find good Middle Eastern food otherwise. I tried a place in Southfield once and nope... not even close! Hell, the "cooks" at that place were white dudes and an Asian lady.

LOL. Back in the 1970s my partner and I opened in Toronto what we hoped would become a chain of Mexican restaurants but our experiment failed - there wasn't much interest in Mexican food back then.  Eventually a fairly good one opened up near where we lived and we went there now and then for burritos and fried ice cream.

The only place I had good Mexican food was in ... Mexico and it was far better than just good, it was outstanding!

Of course that makes sense.  I assume that the Beavertails, butter tarts and poutine made in Mexico doesn't compare as well.

Mmmmmmmmmm Poutine.

I'm surprised that Poutine didn't become a thing in places like Michigan, Vermont, or NY.
