TORONTO -- Flooded with traffic from millions of Americans considering fleeing the country, Canada's immigration website crashed Tuesday night.

Throughout the election, many comedians joked that there would be a flood of citizenship changes if Donald Trump were to win the election. With more than 25 states voting in Trump's favor as votes were tallied at 9 p.m., those Americans began investigating what it might take to cross the border permanently. 

Many who wanted more information were greeted with an internal server error -- the website couldn't handle any more traffic. 

Despite that, millions of Americans cast votes in favor of Trump. Follow election coverage here.
