Canada’s immigration policies are just as warped as America’s—but in a whole different way

Two bordering countries sit at the top of immigrant-inflow lists in either absolute or per-capita terms. Both rank in the top 10 for immigrant-friendly environments on the latest Migrant Integration Policy Index (MIPEX). Both grant birthright citizenship. Unlike most countries in the world, neither require citizens to carry official photo identification, which along with their liberal immigration policies makes life easier for undocumented immigrants.

But one has been portrayed as the devil, and the other an angel. Can you guess which two countries we’re talking about?
