It’s a deluge!
Canada has a huge illegal immigration problem, and by all appearances, it looks set to become worse, not better, due to the Canadian government’s complete lack of will in dealing with the issue. As The Rebel’s Brian Lilley tells it, up to 500 people a day are streaming illegally across the border. This mass immigration is adding more than 180,000 people per year at that rate, provided it doesn’t rise.
But unfortunately, the liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has welcomed these so-called “refugees,” as opposed to sending them back to their original place of settlement. In many cases, these immigrants are of Haitian descent, and they were given “Temporary Protected Status” after the devastating Haitian earthquake of 2010. But that measure allowed them to stay in the United States only so long, and now that U.S. President Trump is promising to send many of these people back to their country of origin, they’re fleeing across the border to Canada in ever-greater numbers.
In fact, so many people are crossing the border now that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have begun to house them in Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, in a move that recalls the sheltering of victims of the Hurricane Katrina disaster in Houston’s Astrodome. Many of those people took years to resettle in their home state at an incredibly high cost to the U.S. federal government.
Unfortunately, the Canadian government’s new policy toward immigrants treats them all the same, whether they enter Canada legally or illegally. This means that certain terrorists can and have been afforded protection under the law that they wouldn’t otherwise have been given. With legal immigration already approaching 300,000 people per year, the resources of the Canadian government are wearing thin, as is the patience of that country’s citizens with this massive wave of people.
Watch as Brian Lilley explains why most Canadians shouldn’t be so excited to welcome these border-patrol dodgers with open arms.
