Customs & Immigration Union Leader “Begging” For More Resources At Border, But Hussen Offers ‘Messaging’ Instead

“It looks like the government doesn’t take this seriously” says the leader of Canada’s Customs and Immigration  Union.

For a long time now we have seen that the Trudeau government doesn’t take Canada’s borders seriously.

Now, the head of Canada’s Customs and Immigration Union Jean-Pierre Fortin is saying the same thing.

As reported by CBC, Fortin is ‘pleading for more resources at the border’ as the influx of illegal border crossers is expected to increase.

Already, over 500 people illegally crossed the Canadian border at Roxham Road in Quebec over the Easter weekend, and it looks like that’s just the beginning:

“It is a clear indication right now … that there will be a major influx over the coming weeks,” Fortin told CBC.

Fortin says the government is not ready for an illegal crossing surge, saying ‘he fears border officers will be left understaffed and under-resourced.’ 

Meanwhile, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen doesn’t seem willing to strengthen border resources, saying instead, “How you get ahead of it is you’re always vigilant, you track the numbers, you also track the different nationalities that are coming in and you tailor your messaging to those people.”

Yet, the report points out that while the government focused messaging on Haitians, most of those crossing illegally now are Nigerians. This could render any ‘messaging’ campaign totally worthless.

Fortin is “begging” for the minister to give more resources, but says “It looks like the government doesn’t take this seriously. It seems for them that it’s going to disappear in six months to a year, and we don’t see that. We don’t see that at all.”

As a result, Fortin is concerned that “security could be compromised” and waits at the border will go up.

He also noted the contradiction between the government saying “don’t come to Canada,” but pointing out that “we are building almost a brand new facility on Roxham Road.”

Since visuals often overpower words, the government is encouraging illegal crossings by having RCMP carry the luggage of illegal crossers and building new facilities to house and process those who breach Canada’s borders.

No amount of ‘messaging’ can beat those images.

Canadian concern vindicated

Using their usual strategy of trying to gaslight Canadians, the Trudeau government kept saying they were dealing with the border problem and wanted to discourage illegal crossings, even as their actions encouraged those very same illegal crossings.

Now, we can see that the concern of Canadians about our weak border has been vindicated, with Fortin saying exactly what millions of us have known for months: The Trudeau government refuses to take the security and integrity of our border seriously.

By now it would seem that most Canadians would be aware of this but, as usual, the government is acting as if all those illegals crossing our borders are simply passive refugees with no criminal intentions but the reality is that some will and do have intentions to harm our country and in many cases, our citizens. Even at the best of times open borders would be a fatal mistake, which is why countries all have borders — not that that reality would register in the House on the Hill — actually, it does register, but they choose to ignore… Read more »


Any canadian citizen who are confronted with illegals and have no idea what to do with them, the answer is very simple: take them to the nearest liberal mps offices or to any media outlet. “Here are your illegals you allowed in, look after them and leave us alone. This is your mess, deal with them.”
Each one of the lib mps should be greeted with illegals at their doorstep. We are going to be treated like a dumpster.

My Canadian Brother and Sisters the plan of Soros, Trudeau, and his hand picked Minister of Immigration are carrying out the plan of Open Borders to all those who walk across and are welcomed by trudeaumaniacs. Immigration Judges are swamped and cannot do what is required of them to ensure that all those who come to this country are vetted. Now we do not have enough border personnel. Go figure, If you want to let people come in unvetted we are doing it under the arse we have as a PM. Not enough Immigration judges and not enough Border staff.… Read more »


The reports about who are those illegal immigrants are: at least 50% of them are heavy duty criminals. That is all we need to know.


Very Accurate comment, Liverpool Sailor…What a disastrous bunch in Office selling Canada down the River while Canadians sleep…easier to sleep than take Action!!

The Union is of the Front line Workers. These Workers along with the RCMP are being abused by the corrupt, vindictive and in your face Management of this Government. The methods used by this Dictatorship is now placing average Canadians along with Canadian Hero’s in danger of harm and death. Trudeau has placed a Minister who is able to be in favour of directing all of his efforts to accommodate his Children Of Islam Brothers and Sisters. Trudeau will illegally flood the Vote in his Favour 2019. Who is able to convince me this is not the Liberal intent.

Maryam musef recently introduced a bill to change our electoral system, making it easier for illegals to vote. Sure. She’s also the NON-citizen who LIED on her immigration form, somehow got elected MP and is now minister of women’s affairs — that’s rich, a non-citizen muslim in charge of chick stuff. And, I bet she voted for herself, several times.

The U.S. border security caught illegal border crossers walking across their border from Canada, Haitians, Romanians, German, and Guatemala border crossers. Instead of giving them support and housing until their claims are heard like Canada does. Instead, the U.S. immediately prepared them for deportation, turning the border crossers over to ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented ‘zero tolerance policy’ and warned illegal entry into the U.S. will NOT be rewarded, instead will be met with the full prosecution of the Dept. of Justice. ‘Enforcing the rule of law is vital to protecting a nation, it’s… Read more »


Trudeau want us legal law abiding citizens to look after his mess. In fact, he said that ‘ canadians wanted him to bring in those illegals’.


I agree Trudeau is breaking our immigration laws, it is not up to Canada to take in this illegal coming from the United States, I applaud President Trump and Jeff Session to enforce the laws of United States, to bad that we have a corrupt government that won’t follow Canada laws. Trudeau is the worst mistake and the enemy of Canada.


So just why would he be concerned and be wanting to stop his “friends” from just walking into Canada …??
Run that by me again, please … ’cause the only concern of his (and JT) will be if these illegals CAN’T just walk across the border …
This government will be the ruination of this once-great country … watch and learn …


The only thing that’s going to solve this mess is a new government. 2019 is coming, so I hope that Canadians will do the right thing and sweep his bunch of incompetents to the dust bin of history.


Only one answer to all this: DO NOT LET IN ANY NEW IMMIGRANTS, not even one, AND TELL THEM THERE ARE NO RESOURCES. Have a good day!


Sad to say but I do not think that Trudeau respects the law, in fact he has openly flaunted the law from making the sick, twisted gagging joke with Chretien about the assault of Bill Clennett to his flagrant taking of a major gift regarding his holiday. Frankly I do not think may I say that Trudeau respects, loves his country as he should, the question is to why.. ???

We need a zero population growth policy, by which for every refugee we take in we must expel a Liberal MP, senator or senior government worker. Sending Turdeau to Africa in exchange for a hundred Nigerians should increase Turdeau’s feeling of self-worth, and Canada would come out ahead. We could become the source of the world’s internet Nigerian money scams. “I am the widow of Canada’s crooked finance minister, and I need someone to help get his money back from the Bahamas….”

Don Taylor

turdeau and his govt should all be charged with treason, they are
all lower than a snakes belly, led by the the guy that never grew up


Since Zoros and the UN and the Clinton Foundation etc. put this Lieberal/NDP Bloc etc separatist government to destroy our country, can we not go to the world court? Have every foreign destroyer of our country charged and deported, along with all the Lieberals, The rich do not care what happens to us, or to these people seeking refugee status illegally, which will again hurt us all, not them. We do not even grow enough food in Canada anymore to feed ourselves, though we could be. We no longer have enough jobs left here to support all of us, though… Read more »


It is more evident every day that Liberals are the biggest liars and the most hated people in Canada.
Trudeau is offensive, Trudeau is disgusting, Trudeau is treasonous.
