A new bill could mean asylum for protesting Canadian truckers
New Mexico representative Yvette Herrell (R-N.M) is planning to introduce a bill that would offer asylum to Canadian truckers involved in the vaccine mandate protests.
Herrell said in a statement on Twitter:
“I am introducing legislation that would temporarily grant asylum to innocent Canadian protesters who are being persecuted by their own government. We cannot be silent as our neighbors to the north are treated so badly,”
Protests against the COVID-19 protocol measures in Canada have carried on for weeks. This has resulted in blockades that have impacted the Canadian economy negatively, which officials in the US are afraid may cross towards their country.
