Illegal Border Crossing ‘Asylum’ Claims To Surge Past Legal Claims In 2018

The border crisis continues to escalate, as government inaction encourages more illegal crossings.

In a sign of how the crisis at the border continues to escalate, a new report points out that Canada is on pace to see more illegal ‘asylum’ claims than legal claims in 2018.

That’s according to an in-depth breakdown of the border crisis by Tristan Hopper in the National Post:

Writes Hopper, “There are so many Mounties needed to process illegal border crossings in rural Quebec that the federal government is now spending $250,000 to build an unofficial police station on the U.S. border. In Toronto last week, Mayor John Tory announced that the number of refugee claimants in the city’s shelter system has quadrupled from 459 per night in 2016 to an average of 2,351 in 2018. And at least one Quebec politician is calling for a border fence with the U.S.”

And as Hopper points out, “Illegal border crossers are outpacing conventional refugees for the first time.”

Of course, this is a direct result of the inaction by the Trudeau government, which is encouraging even more illegal crossings.

In today’s connected world, word has spread rapidly that Canada’s government is unwilling to get tough at the border, and is rolling out the red carpet for those who cross illegally. With that message spreading, more and more people are trying to enter Canada in violation of our border laws.

And while all this is happening, people following the legal process are being punished by getting pushed even further back in line.

Notably, while the Trudeau government has tried to downplay the impact of Trudeau’s irresponsible ‘welcome to Canada’ tweet, the report notes that the evidence shows Trudeau’s tweet was a catalyst for more illegal crossings:

“In a recent House of Commons speech, Conservative public safety critic Pierre Paul-Hus called the tweet “the root of” illegal border crossings. And the data seems to back him up. The month before the Tweet, the RCMP intercepted 315 illegal border-crossers. The next month that doubled to 678 — and kept climbing until it reached a peak of 5,712 by August, 2017.”

So, not only does the Trudeau government bear heavy responsibility for the surge of illegal border crossings, they are also responsible for the inaction that is making the crisis worse, and no amount of government spin can change those facts.

All Trudeau cares about is votes. He can say our country is welcoming and diverse but the reality is he doesn’t care what harm comes to Canadians as long as people vote for him.

How many Illegals are dangerous offenders? How many have criminal records? How many have health issues and test HIV positive? How many have just disappeared into society never to be found again?
We have many homeless Canadians, many with mental illness, many Indigenous with alcoholic issues, dirty water problems high suicide rates and poor housing. We do not do enough for these Canadians now, how are we expected to help the world’s problems?? Trudeau must act to stop those illegals. All the money going to the illegals should be going to help Canadians.

Brian Mellor, Justin has been very busy GIVING AWAY MULTIPLES OF BILLIONS to foreign countries for foolish reasons without hesitation. Justin has absolutely no regard for the people of Canada. One of the biggest problems I see is that Canadians aren’t even talking about these outrageous problems. Canadians small talk and discuss hockey scores, but we are NOT ultra mad and talking about the abuses we face via Justin and his arrogant dictatorship. Justin has no intention of dealing with the problems we face as a society. He disregards them completely.


There are more men than women coming through which should alert us particularly women, that these men are not just fleeing but came here on a purpose sent by their homeland gov.
Massive illegal migrations normally should be the UN problem but this one is all traitor Jihadi Justin Trudeau and radical mps own doing.


Legal law abiding citizens when encountered by illegals should take them to the media outlets that supports justin trudeau madness as well as to every liberal mps home or offices to be looked after since we have been denied access to our freedom and peace.
Every liberal mp who stands with jihadi traitor Trudeau should bear the major responsibility of their damage to us.


The Canadian Border is also a Provincial Border. Is it possible for the Provinces to block illegal migrants by setting out razor wire, particularly at the RCMP designated illegal crossings?

I have no objection to giving a portion of our surplus to those who live outside Canada, but we must look after our own family first. That means no homeless vets, homeless seniors, or homeless women and children. It also means no medical waiting lists, no judicial waiting lists and no national or provincial debts. THEN we can give a few spare loonies to the world. We cannot afford to support the poor and downtrodden of the world, and that includes those poor, downtrodden global bankers who lend us the money for our largess at compound interest, when there are… Read more »
