Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a shot at President Trump’s immigration order on Saturday when he said Canada would welcome refugees rejected by the president.
According to a Trudeau spokeswoman, Kate Purchase, “The Prime Minister is looking forward to discussing the successes of Canada’s immigration and refugee policy with the President when they next speak.”
Theresa May: “The United States is responsible for the United States’ policy on refugees.”

Trudeau allowed in over 39,000 Syrian refugees soon after he was elected, and he recently posted a picture of himself greeting a Syrian child at the Toronto airport.
“We have been assured that Canadian citizens traveling on Canadian passports will be dealt with in the usual process,” Purchase said.
The U.S. State Department said that Canadians with dual citizenship from Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and Libya would be denied entry for the next three months.
The mayor of the Canadian city of Toronto, John Tory, called his city the most diverse in the world and said, “We understand that, as Canadians, we are almost all immigrants and that no one should be excluded on the basis of their ethnicity or nationality.”
PM Trudeau has said that when he meets with President Trump, he plans on discussing Canada’s refugee policy.
