NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCHR) warned today that the international community is about to face a refugee crisis worse than what’s happening in Syria — and it involves Americans!
With a Donald Trump presidency looming, hundreds of thousands of Americans are already readying plans for a massive exodus, fleeing to the north and south of the border (Canada and Mexico), as well as to countries in Europe and Asia.
Already, Canadan Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that his country is building a wall along the US.-Canada border in anticipation of the exodus to North America. Trudeau said Canada will make Trump pay for the cost of building the wall.
The United States Post Office (USPO) is reporting being overwhelmed by both new and renewal passport applications, while foreign consular offices throughout the United States have confirmed a spike in visa applications.
It is estimated that as many as 150 Million Americans, mostly Democrats, are expected to flee the U.S. starting in November this year, right after the presidential elections. Compare that with 4.6 Million Syrian refugees!
Among those who have reportedly applied for foreign visas are Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz, a Canadian American, and Marco Rubio, a Cuban American.
Unconfirmed reports say that the Obamas have purchased a home in Nyang’oma Kogelo, Kenya, birthplace of Barack’s father.
TORONTO, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today announced that the Canadian government will soon build a wall along the U.S.-Canada border to keep out Americans expected to flee once Donald Trump is elected president of the United States.
Today’s announcement is a dose of Trump’s own medicine. When he launched his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, he announced that he will build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to prevent Mexicans and others from entering the country. Trump said that he will ask Mexico to pay for the cost of building the great wall. Recently, he said he had just decided to make the wall 10 feet higher than his original plan.
Similary, Trudeau said that his government will bill the Trump administration for the cost of building the U.S. northern border.
As the probability of a Trump presidency becomes stronger by the day, many Americans have vowed to flee the U.S. for Canada and other countries in Europe.
The handsome prime minister said that Americans can still enter Canada legally, with a valid visa. However, he said only Americans from the red states will be required to secure visas. Those from the blue states can enter Canada visa-free for a period of 90 days.
SYDNEY, Australia (The Adobo Chronicles) – It is not uncommon for the U.S. State Department to issue travel advisories to Americans visiting or living in countries where there is violence, safety concerns, or terrorist threats. But it seems the tides have turned.
At least a dozen countries (and the number is growing) in Asia and Europe have issued travel warnings to their citizens to postpone if not altogether cancel their scheduled business or leisurely travel to the United States because of serious and credible concerns about their safety.
The Foreign Affairs Departments of these countries issued the travel warning following the latest mass shooting that killed 14 and injured scores of others in San Bernardino, California. It was the latest in a pattern of gun violence in the U.S., and was the 355th mass shooting for the year.
The foreign governments have indicated that their travel advisories will only be lifted if and when the U.S. Congress passes a comprehensive legislation banning assault weapons and instituting more stringent regulations on gun ownership.
Republican legislators and presidential candidates appeared unfazed by the travel advisories, threatening instead to completely eliminate the U.S. visa waiver program which grants citizens of certain foreign countries a visa-free visit to the U.S. for business or pleasure.
Wall Street investors are now nervous about the impact of the travel advisories on their respective businesses and fear that another stock market crash is in the offing.
