Canadian taxpayers are going to keep getting fleeced.
We recently learned that illegal border crossers have cost Canadian taxpayers $270 million.
And if you thought the illegal border crossing crisis couldn’t get worse, think again.
It turns out that family members of illegal border crossers are using a loophole that allows them to be basically guaranteed entry into Canada.
Here’s what a memo from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) said:
“Recently, CBSA officers are noticing another phenomenon: claimants who have recently arrived in Canada as irregular migrants and have refugee claims in process are acting as an anchor relative for other qualifying family members. This means that these family members can present themselves at a port of entry and not be considered as irregular migrants. Also, they can’t be refused entry under the Safe Third Country Agreement (STCA).”
This means that illegal border crossers – who are already using a loophole – are having family members come to Canada – also using a loophole.
So, for everyone who enters Canada illegally, an untold number of people could also enter Canada.
This goes to show why refusing to secure the border is such a serious problem. It is creating an ever-growing number of people who can enter Canada against the will of our country, pushing legal immigrants to the back of the line and adding to the burden on our social programs.
And while the establishment media refuses to say “illegal border crossers,” we know that crossing into Canada illegally is exactly that: Illegal.
Yet, that illegal behaviour is being rewarded by the Trudeau government, and that reward is getting even bigger when people entering illegally can then get their family members here.
The government must get tough and remove all incentives to illegal crossings. Every day they refuse to do so only confirms that they are more loyal to those breaking Canada’s laws than they are to Canadian citizens.
