Canadian Council For Refugees Rips Trudeau Government For Lying About Advantages Of Crossing Illegally

The evidence of the Trudeau government’s continued deception is impossible to ignore.

The Canadian Council of Refugees is ripping the Trudeau government for telling illegal border crossers that there is “no advantage” to crossing the Canadian border illegally.

As reported by Althia Raj of HuffPost Canada, the head of the Canadian Council for Refugees says the Trudeau government messaging is false.

“The reason that people come irregularly is because that is the way to avoid the Safe Third Country Agreement. I don’t understand on what basis you could say you don’t have an advantage by doing it. I mean, the advantage is you can make a claim [while] you would be immediately found not eligible if you presented yourself at a point of entry,” said Dench.

Obvious advantages

Because of the actions of Justin Trudeau, and now the Liberal Quebec government, it is obvious that there are big advantages to crossing illegally.

Illegal border crossers are getting accommodations, welfare, and possibly work permits. They are getting healthcare services, and are able to stay in Canada for months before their asylum claims are heard.

And – as Dench points out – the very fact that their claims are being heard in the first place is the biggest advantage of all.

At this point, the Trudeau government is planning to keep all of those things in place, which means the incentive to cross illegally remains in place.

As a result, the illegal crossings will continue.

Of course, the government could easily stem the flow of illegal crossings. Andrew Scheer listed several good ideas, including extending the safe third country agreement across the entire border – which would make it impossible for illegal border crossers to make asylum claims and thus eliminate the incentive to cross.

And yet, Trudeau has ignored all warnings and ideas about the growing border crisis and our broken immigration system, just as he has ignored the Canadian Council for Refugees. It’s a sign that Trudeau’s arrogance is consuming any last remnants of judgement and common sense that may have remained in the government.
