Supporting the influx of Refugees in Canada
Here it is. The new direction the Gangsters out Blog has taken is a loud and clear support for the huge influx of refugees from all over the world coming to Canada from the United States. This is a national emergency because public funding is limited. We need to open our hearts, open our wallets and open our homes to support them privately.
Recently we met a wonderful family from Colombia and Honduras with two amazing young children that came to Canada as refugees. Both parents were working in Houston for three years with valid green cards. All of a sudden the green cards were revoked and they were forced to leave with no place to go. The reasons why they can't go back to where they were living before that is private. The bottom line is that Donald Trump's revoke of the Statue of Liberty has taken hard working families and made them homeless. It is a national disgrace.
I will update a list of links where people can volunteer or donate. Since the United States has dropped the ball it is time for us to answer the call and meet that need just like we did during WWI and WWII. Perhaps it's time to move the Statue of Liberty north to higher ground. Peace.
The Inland Refugee Society gives free English classes for refugees. They need donations because they have refugees staying in homeless shelters that can't afford buss passes to attend their free english classes. Donating $10 or $20 would help them immensely.
In the words of Martin Luther King "He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat. He is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgement seat. Oh be swift my soul to answer him be jubilant my feet while God is marching on." Like a waving flag yo.

The most logical and simple solution in Canada is to give the refugees temporary social insurance numbers so they can work. If they want to come here and work then let them. The influx of refugees will create a boom in construction.
