Why is the Boston paper trying to discourage them? If they are one of the "unwanteds" without big bucks, pack up the SUV and drive on over and become an illegal. If you get caught, demand that the Canadian gov't give you welfare and a court date before an immigration judge to appear in a year or so just like they do all those people who de-plane with no ID. Then if you show up in court, tell the judge you must be permitted to stay because the people from Jesusland will get you if he sends you home. That should do it.
How true. Isn't the Bible up there full of language that merits "hate crimes" up there? Just mentioning that you had to listen to a Bible passage or hear the word God, should be enough for them to give them refuge.
Yeah - tell him you were just sitting peacefully at home watching one of your Queer Eye for the Straight Guy DVDs, when a couple of Jesusland agents came up to your house on their bicycles and asked if were interested in (gasp!) hearing the Word of Jesus Christ as put forth in the Book of Mormon.
And then, after they left and you drove your hybrid down to the organic market to pick up a warm soy milk to calm your jangled nerves, you passed by a church and it (horror of horrors!!!) had a cross outside!
Instant political asylum.
