New Votes and expanding their voting base is the real reason for the Left’s obsession with refugees. It has nothing to do with compassion. Nothing!
You see the Left knows that new voters from the developing world represent permanent political power for themselves. That’s all that the Left cares about.
Canada: Refugees in 2015, Syrians now citizens in time for 2019 federal election
By Maan Alhmidi, The Canadian Pres, August, 10, 2019:
Ahmad Almahmoud has dedicated time every day to follow the news, wanting to be an informed citizen for this fall’s federal election.
He is one of 25,000 Syrian refugees that were resettled in Canada between the October 2015 federal election and February 2016. More Syrian refugees have landed in the country since then, with Statistics Canada numbers showing almost 60,000 being resettled as of this past February.
Now, he is on the verge earning his citizenship as others have done so he can do something on Oct. 21 he wasn’t able to do in Syria — vote in a free and fair election.
The Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party has held power in Syria since 1963, including almost 20 years under Bashar al-Assad following three decades of his father’s rule. The party has survived multiple uprisings, including the Arab Spring demonstrations in 2011 that led to the ongoing civil war.
Fleeing a war-torn country to exercise democracy in Canada has been a huge shift for Almahmoud and other Syrians.
“The democracy, the elections, the transfer of power peacefully and seamlessly — it’s all new to us,” Almahmoud said.
