This shows there are no lengths the Trudeau Liberals won’t go to in order to politicize things.
Omar Alghabra is facing intense criticism after he seemingly tried linking German Jews fleeing fascist persecution in the past, to people entering Canada illegally from the U.S. today.
Here’s what Alghabra tweeted:
“On Nov 7th, the PM will apologize for turning away the St. Louis. As we continue to promote human rights globally, we must reconcile with our mistakes at home. We turned away asylum seekers without giving them due process and dignity. We must learn from our history”

While Alghabra and the Trudeau Liberals will try denying it, people could see the terrible comparison Alghabra was trying to make.
One huge irony here is that the Trudeau Liberals have shown zero willingness to confront, or even mention the horrific anti-Semitism being preached at some mosques in Canada.
Also, the Trudeau Liberals have routinely referred to illegal border crossers as “asylum seekers,” even though they are fleeing from a safe and democratic country. In fact, Canada and the U.S. have extradition treaties with each other, so unless the Trudeau government is about to admit that they think the U.S. is somehow ‘fascist,’ then even they have to admit that the U.S. is safe.
Therefore, to even hint at a comparison between German Jews fleeing the impending Holocaust, and people illegally crossing into Canada from a free and democratic nation is absolutely awful.
And people made it clear what they thought about Alghabra’s comments:
Please stop. I'm Jewish & lost a lot of family bloodline in the Holocaust. Some were blocked from emigrating in the lead up but I don't hold it against the people of today or paste peoples as a whole. Forgive yourself and let go of this insincere narrative. (I'm an immigrant too)

Do u know nothing of history @OmarAlghabra ? The Jews were fleeing certain persecution. These asylum seekers are living in the United States.

Amazing, Omar. I weep for Canada that someone like yourself is in government. The whole toxic federal Liberal lot of you need to be kicked to the political curb next year at election time.

Although I salute any apologies which are required to reconcile that fact that as a Nation we have made mistakes. But for the LPC to use this to support the unsupportable illegal immigration polcies is deplorable.

This is appropriate, even if the Nation has formally apologised for this in the past. Do not cheapen the apology by trying to make political points with it, or try to draw a parallel to other refugee situations. Nothing compares to the genocide of six million Jews.

I can’t believe you would conflate these two issues in a brazen attempt to score political points. It’s vile.

Tanja Hunter summed it up well indeed, in a way that encapsulates the political approach of the entire Trudeau government. “It’s vile.”
