Sales of Maple Leafs and Manchester United jerseys in Miami just went through the roof.
Its the Canadians we need to be most worried about though!
Wow- no profiling at all, is there? How disgusting. Well, if this passes it will quickly be struck down.
Wow so it's official that presumed innocence depends on race/origin? I'm sure Hispanic Canadians won't get harassed at all then. That big 'ol can of worms just bust open didn't it?
Um... no... We're very friendly and just looking to buy up Florida and annex it from the United States...OH LOOK JELLYFISH!!!
Good effing god, this sounds like a 19th century immigration policy. So if you have a polish accent you have to show your papers, but if you sound german or english you're all good to go? Wow.
Florida's Cuban community used to be solidly Republican. I can't imagine that being the case given this.
The Cubans will vote for whoever guarantees the trade embargo to the island continues...
Canadians (snowbirds) spend a lot of time and $$$ in Florida.
Also, doesn't florida have a large russian community? That's not western european. so when a russian with an accent gets pulled over they will be asked for papers?
not likely.....more likely; the florida cop would just assume the guy's from new jersey
Does sound imperialistic to divide Europe like that. Europeans typically get swarthier looking the further East you go, generally.
Darker 5 o'clock shadows.
Ohh, well then in that case that's not really true. I'm of ukrainian ancestry and much of my family is blonde haired with blue eyes, as are many ukrainians. Where as Italians are not eastern european, but many tend to be quite dark.
I'm calling shenanigans here.
Some state representative wrote a stupid, racist bill?
OMG. Stop the presses.
It's not like THAT'S ever happened before.
Don't sweat it.
Canadians are the most ethnically diverse country in the World, and yet we can get in.
But who wants to? I mean, it's Florida for God's sake!!!
I was under the assumption that Canada was actually a significant source of illegal immigrants? Canadians overstaying their visas.
So do Europeans.
Colour me confused too.
Do people not know what Florida is like in the Summer??
Me, using Toronto as the basis of my ramblings.
Fifty or sixty years back, the joke along Panama City Beach was that the Canadians would come down in the winter with a five-dollar bill and one set of underwear--and never change either. That changed, and the Canadians became favored customers. And they now own a good bit of it...
I was visiting with some Canadians down on Caicos Island and one lady commented, "The US is wonderful place to shop, but I certainly wouldn't want to live there!" So giving Canadians a walk on immigration status makes good sense. Doesn't waste a cop's time.
Pretty much the same for most Europeans.
You can have it!
Not at all, JohnHenry. Countries like India have dozens of different ethnicities. Canada is over 80% white... it is much less ethnically diverse than the US.
(Note: maybe you meant to say that the major cities are among the most diverse, which is true.)
The problem with illegal immigration is coming south of the border, not north. Plain and simple.
