American voters watch US Election Day results ,triggers crash of Canadian immigration website

Ontario,Nov9:The one-stop shop for Canadian hopefuls slowed to a crawl late Tuesday as droves of disenchanted Americans inundated the immigration website.

The Immigration and Citizen portal sputtered, repeatedly crashing as Election Day results showed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump snagging wins in Ohio, Florida and Missouri.

 An attempt to access the site prompted an “internal server error.”

A spokesperson for Canadian immigration did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the website problems.

Left-leaning voters have threatened to ditch the United States for their northern neighbor ever since the real estate magnate kicked off his White House bid by disparaging Mexicans, Muslims and women.

Cape Breton Island officials begged Americans to consider a move to their northern island in the Atlantic Ocean should Trump wins.
