Default Amazing News We Never Hear About

A place to post quite surprising bits of news which goes under-reported or which we hear little or nothing.

Postings should be fact-checked and/or come from news (or information) sources which are generally held to be reliable. No fake news here!

Since around the time President Donald Trump took office, thousands of immigrants in the U.S. have fled north to Canada seeking asylum. -- https://nationalpost.com/news/canada...orthern-border
------------

Edit:

When I first read that, I assumed (rather too quickly) that these were American citizens seeking asylum in Canada. But many are probably not US citizens.

However, as early (in Trump's tenure as president) as October of last year there had been a marked increase in American citizens crossing the border into Canada and pursuing asylum or immigration. (I'm not easily and readily finding more recent reports, but will look into it.)

The Trump administration is driving Americans to seek asylum in Canada

Yeah.

And now for a little comic relief. ("Coming in through the back door.")
