“It is truly unfortunate the amount of anti-immigration hate speech happens today in 2018.”

It is truly unfortunate the amount of anti-immigration hate speech happens today in 2018. Whether it is online or in person it is constantly happening. Most recently I came across a video posted to Facebook that was shot in Toronto and it was a Caucasian man telling an ethnic family that they did not belong in Canada, despite the fact that they were born and raised in Canada. This type of hate speech occurs way to frequently on a daily basis and appears in all forms whether online or in person.

 

A close friend of mine just got married however her husband is a cuban citizen. It took them almost two years despite being married for him to come to Canada legally. The process was invasive, disappointing and very hard on her and her family as there were multiple times that they thought it was going to happen and then it did not. It was very difficult and even now is still difficult as he needs to learn how to live in a completely different environment.

 

Although my friend and her family call Canada home, her husband still feels that Cuba is home and is finding it very difficult to adjust, I am positive with time it will come and he will feel at home but until then it still remains a struggle.
