The price of a U.S. Green Card held steady for the past 27 years at $500,000 USD, under an investment immigration program known as EB-5. That will almost certainly change this year, when the U.S. Congress votes on raising the investor's Green Card minimum to $1.3 million. So what is a millionaire to do when the U.S. tells them to take their money elsewhere?

President Trump's vilification of immigrants, including a restriction on their movements in the form of a travel ban for people from seven Muslim-majority nations, leaves many genius researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs feeling unwelcome in the U.S. even if they are allowed in.

As Part Of An Immigrant Family, Trump's Travel Ban Feels Personal

Mike Rowlands | Posted 02.09.2017 | Canada Politics
Mike Rowlands

There are those who dismiss President Donald Trump's travel ban as an everyday security policy. I say by proposing it in the first place, and by arguing for it so vehemently in the face of massive, vocal opposition, the Oval Office is betraying America's commitment to be "the home of the brave."

Jeff Paterson

I'm not sure who is advising the Black Lives Matter Toronto chapter. Social justice should be about resolving issues that exist and preventing new ones from popping up. Regressive justice and the approach of BLMTO seems to be creating division. They're stepping on others and provoking controversy. Making such outlandish commentary and actions, they become their own worst enemy.

Citizens clearly want to have a debate about immigrants and refugees. Some are worried, some are scared. Some are racists, but some actually aren't. We in Canada can certainly have such a debate, but not in the way Trump is doing it - or the way in which Kellie Leitch and Kevin O'Leary want to do it.

We have long maintained a sense of pride in being pro immigrant, refugee friendly, and a safe haven for all. This act of terrorism proved without a doubt that this is not the case.

When it comes to countering radicalization, Canadian policy has a different problem.

An immigrant from India, I arrived in Canada in May 1968. Canada is my chosen home. It is not perfect. No country is. But it is more perfect than most.
