Trudeau’s Failure To Stop Illegal Border Crossers Could Cost Canadian Taxpayers Over $1 Billion By End Of 2020

That’s money that can’t be used to help Canadians.

The accumulated cost of Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government’s failure to protect Canada’s border is set to reach over $1 billion by the end of 2020 if open border policies remain in place.

The Parliamentary Budget Office says the cost of illegal border crossings in 2017 was $340 million, and will reach $400 million by the end of 2019. Considering that Canada is on pace for at least as many – if not more illegal crossings in 2018, and considering that Justin Trudeau shows no sign of protecting Canada’s border, the illegal influx is likely to continue.

As a result, the total cost of illegal border crossings could reach up to $1 billion by the end of 2020.

Even the CP noted that PBO head Yves Giroux “warned that $340 million could become an annual cost if Canada doesn’t seen any decrease in the number of irregular asylum seekers.”

And of course, that’s just the cost to federal programs like health insurance. It doesn’t even include all the costs to municipalities and provinces.

Every dollar of that $1 billion is a dollar that isn’t being spent on Canadian citizens. It’s money taken away from our infrastructure, from our healthcare, from our schools, from our military, and it pushes Canada further into debt and will be used by Liberal politicians to ‘justify’ tax increases.

It’s a fundamental reality: Open borders hurt Canadian citizens, and it’s vulnerable Canadians who will pay the biggest price.
