“The primary aim of Canada’s immigration policy should be to economically benefit Canadians and Canada as a whole. It should not be used to forcibly change the cultural character and social fabric of our country. And it should not put excessive financial burdens on the shoulders of Canadians in the pursuit of humanitarian goals… Despite Canada already accepting more immigrants that (sic) almost any other country, both the Liberals and Conservatives support an unsustainable increase in the annual immigration intake, and are using mass immigration as a political tool to buy votes among immigrant communities.” – Copy-and-paste from People’s Party of Canada email “Immigration: Reducing overall levels and prioritizing skilled immigrants issue” – August 7th, 2019.

Their reason for traveling here is emblazoned on the two helicopters they have brought with them – to ‘Defend Europe’.” – Marion MacGregor, “The push from Europe’s young new right” – InfoMigrants, May 4th, 2018.
“Even European countries that had long been seen as reliable bastions of centrist politics failed to defy the upsurge of populist nationalism. UKIP grabbed 31.7 percent of votes cast in Britain in the European Parliament elections, while in France the far-right National Rally took 23.2 percent. In Italy, the Northern League, led by Matteo Salvini, won 33.43 percent, up from a mere 6.2 percent in the 2014 elections. Elsewhere in Europe, Hungary’s ruling right-wing Fidesz party, which vowed to further tighten the country’s rules on migration, rolled up impressive gains with 52 percent.” – Emina Osmandzikovic, “Rise of anti-immigrant parties compounds problems for Europe’s Muslims” – Arab News, July 28th, 2019.
