The Trudeau government continues to send a message that ignoring Canada’s borders has no consequences.
New info shows that just 135 illegal border crossers have been removed from Canada between January 1st and March 31st, 2018.
In that same time, the government reports over 5,000 people entered our country illegally.
According to the CP, “The government says border officials can only remove failed refugee claimants after they have exhausted all legal options available to try for refugee status, including applications to the Immigration and Refugee Board, appeals and other administrative measures.”
What this means is that the current system incentivizes illegal border crossings, because once people get their foot in the door, the government is very unlikely to remove them.
It’s a weak approach, that has been made far worse by Justin Trudeau’s irresponsible tweet ‘welcoming’ everyone.
Conservative Immigration Critic Michelle Rempel has noted that under the current government timelines, “it could be “decades” before all removals of illegal border crossers are complete.”
In the meantime, with illegal border crossings getting taxpayer-funded transport to their ‘preferred destination,’ work permits, and welfare, and it’s clear that the illegal crossings will continue unless we get a federal government that actually enforces our border and takes tough steps to discourage illegal entry into Canada.
And until that happens, Canadian taxpayers will keep paying the price.
