How is it possible that those who fought for ISIS are just allowed to walk back into Canada without being thrown in prison or deported?
The disturbing weakness of the government continues, as they appear to be passively sitting back as people who fought for ISIS come back into our country.
According to a recent report, 60 people suspected as participating in “terrorism-related activities” have returned to our country. The government calls them “extremist travelers,” probably in an effort to downplay the threat of returning ISIS fighters.
As noted in the report, the 60 number “includes Canadians, permanent residents and those who have visited Canada multiple times.”
What makes this so disturbing is that the domestic danger may rise as ISIS is defeated overseas. Even without a geographical base, more and more Islamic State fighters will be leaving the middle east, and they could be a serious terrorist threat in Canada and countries around the world.
Canada has faced ISIS-inspired attacks, including the attack that killed Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, the Parliament Hill attack that killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo, and the recent Edmonton attack where an ISIS flag was found in the attackers car.
Jail and deport them
It’s a no brainer. Those who went overseas to fight for ISIS have no business coming back to Canada. Aside from Justin Trudeau and his pathetic “a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian” rhetoric, common-sense Canadians know that ISIS fighters should be in jail or somewhere other than Canada. After all, having Canadian citizenship doesn’t make it ok to join an organization that seeks the destruction of Canada.
The weakness of our government here is pathetic, and there is immense hypocrisy in how these ISIS supporters are being treated compared to how good, law-abiding Canadian citizens are treated. This was pointed out perfectly in a comment on a Global news story about returning ISIS fighters:
That post is 100% correct, and it shows a terrible hypocrisy in our government that must be brought to an end. The government should be respecting the rights of law abiding citizens and punishing those who wanted to fight for an enemy of freedom and enemy of Canada.
The Conservative opposition must immediately push for returning ISIS fighters to be jailed, or deported. Anything less is total weakness that puts Canadians at risks.
