Trudeau Tweet: Asylum Seekers and Words Faith

trudeau tweet: The Tories have argued that a Trudeau tweet from January 2017 is partly to blame for the influx of asylum seekers crossing into Canada from the United States, according to The Chronicle Herald. Conservative party spokesman Cory Hann says the ad was axed because the situation at the border is not about any one group of people. The tweet is rolled out as a carpet entering a broken fence and the words faith and diversity are visible. Hann says the image, which shows an actual person illegally crossing over the Canadian border, was originally used by a number of media outlets with stories about the surge in asylum seekers. A quote from a story in the Financial Post is superimposed on the image which says, Trudeau's holier-than-thou tweet causes migrant crisis now he needs to fix what he started. The full photo shows the man with a group of people carrying suitcases in Quebec, while the edited image used by the Conservative party singled out one man. ( As reported in the news.
