This Immigrant Left the U.S. To Seek Asylum In Canada And Regrets It (HBO)



Jose Castillo is an undocumented immigrant, who after 15 years in the U.S. uprooted his family, hid them in the basement of a church in Buffalo, and snuck them across the border to Canada to seek asylum.

It was supposed to be the end of his struggle — like tens of thousands of immigrants who have fled to Canada, Jose believed it would welcome him with open arms. But now, just 10 months later, he’s worried he might have made a huge mistake.

VICE News traveled to Canada, where Jose and more than 20,000 people are learning that the country isn’t quite as welcoming as they thought, and government officials are being dispatched to the United States to clear up the misunderstanding before another 20,000 show up.

  1. This is why I am a neocon. Everyone wants to come to the west so why not bring the west to them. I mean they are fleeing as “refugees” ?!?! a lil bit of some good ol’ freedom can do some good for Latin America

  2. He has it so haaaard. The moment he gets Canadian citizenship he'll be down in the US working illegally and selling drugs.

  3. fucevery G7 country has a great economy right now, esp the US, ditto China, but Russia's is crippled by an overdependence on oil (when oil prices halved 3 years ago, Russia was F$CKED) and G7 sanctions over the annexation of Crimea. So who wins from a trade war that stalls economic growth world-wide, including the US?
    The US NAFTA negotiator (Trump's man) states on his website that the US has a Trade SURPLUS with Canada overall, and has balanced trade with the EU, so Trump has to remove America's huge Trade Surplus in Services to even pretend current trade isn't fair, SO WHY IS HE DOING IT: THE ONLY BENEFICIARY IS PUTIN!
    PUTIN'S allies, using Russian bots to back anti-immigrant, ultra-nationalist platforms, have taken over Italy and Hungary since he took over the US presidency in '16 (most American's noticed), they almost got France, and have Canada and Germany in their sights.
    Trump announcing he wants Russia back into the G7 had ZERO backing in any branch of the US Govt, the Republican Party, or even his own Whitehouse, ditto his announcement of a Summit with Putin. British Intelligence tried to warn you, but now the fact that EVERYTHING Putin could want of a US President is the only rational that explains EVERYTHING Trump does is noticable to EVERYONE in America, except the obvious dimwits who get their News exclusively from Fox News and Trump's twitter account.king click bait ..

  5. Good! Tell all your friends we are NOT as friendly and polite as you people think. Next to get the boot is that moron Justin that invited you here.

  6. How many Nancy Pelosi has taken into her 4 million home? I thought so, also how many ever loving liberals are going to take into their homes or just leave their doors open at night? I’m a non white gay immigrant so spare me the bs virtue signaling no arguments from the left.
