This article by John Ivison is noteworthy since he exposes serious asylum abuses in Canada – Budget officer finds illegal migrants entering via a ‘loophole within a loophole’.
It’s bad enough that the actual costs of illegal migration are a tremendous burden to the taxpayer. However on top of that we are now discovering that illegals are taking advantage of serious weaknesses within the system – thereby possibly threatening public safety:
This means a migrant can cross into Canada from the U.S. between official entry points, avoiding the Safe Third Country Agreement that would have otherwise made them ineligible…
Once a claim has been made, the migrant can access Canada’s generous welfare system as he or she navigates the asylum claims process that gives them multiple hearings and appeals. In the meantime, they can effectively sponsor other members of their family, who can then arrive as regular migrants — also avoiding the Safe Third Country Agreement.
Ivison goes on to explain how relatives being brought in by that illegal anchor person can extend way past immediate family members. You would think the government would take all steps necessary to resolve this problem. And yet they seem to be dragging their heels.
Of course, if the ultimate goal of this Trudeau government is to flood the country with “irregular” Liberal voters before October 21, 2019, then I suppose they would have very little incentive to deal effectively with the problem.
Andrew Scheer is putting forward a motion to stop Canada from signing onto the UN Global Compact for Migration! Good for him. (h/t Cara in comments)
