Canada & The South: Immigration Differences

A large number of Canadians have also began to immigrate into the United States. Immigrants coming in from the north don’t pose as much of a problem as is the case with immigration from the south.

The biggest difference is that most people coming in from Canada are Europeans, like the dominant White America, and are seen as brothers by our society and seamlessly integrate into it. They are usually looking for better opportunities in the US, are usually able to speak English perfectly, and have a better skillset that can be put to use. A situation that is welcomed by U.S. Immigration Policy.

Although there are some from Canada who are attempting to escape law enforcement, the criminal incidence of Canadians in the US is much lower than the immigrant criminal activity from Mexico and other nations south of the U.S. border. Considering the drug cartels and the lawless nature on the border, the differences are like night and day.
