Canada’s Immigration Policy Collapses
Policy becomes pretense; alleged leadership has the stench of abdication
When he campaigned for the job of prime minister one Justin Trudeau promised hard work and progressive values. He is delivering on neither and the wheels are falling off this government with predictable frequency.
Now, it comes to pass we no longer have an immigration policy. The border is wide open to Trump`s discards- refugees he arbitrarily kicks out of the US. Where Canadian citizens need a passport to cross the border, and a huge number of immigrants/refugees are waiting to be processed(up to an 11 year waiting period) Trump’s discards get the nod.
This government appears oblivious to the fact that dumping large numbers of refugees across borders can be a form of warfare as the social and economic costs of assimilating so many refugess can be debilitating; especially for a small country like Canada and for a mid-term government already running a 28 billion dollar deficit. Also, a government that has been previously warned by Immigration Canada costs are getting out of control and waiting times unreasonably long.
Refugees are always welcome but their arrivals must be based on a sane and sensible immigration policy based on our realistic ability to effectively and fairly assimilate them.
We must also address the cold hard fact too many of them arrive here as a result of homelands destroyed by warfare in which we have been complicit. Virtue signaling is nothing more than a naked hypocrisy.
Dumping refugees across borders becomes a very convenient tribute tax levied, as we are left cleaning up Trump’s immigration problems and in doing so we lay the way for more and bigger waves of asylum seekers in the future.
The collapse of our immigration policy comes at a portentous time as negotiations on the new NAFTA are just getting under way. Given the record of this government our much ballyhooed NAFTA initiative will go the way of our foreign policy and immigration policy-another smoldering train wreck.
We are a country where policy has become pretense, and alleged leadership has the stench of abdication:
Ever since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted his version of our immigration policy to virtue signal how it differed from the Trump administration in the U.S., the predictable has happened.
Illegal asylum seekers have been flooding across our border with the U.S., most frequently in Quebec.
The numbers are spinning out of control, with Montreal’s Olympic Stadium and other facilities conscripted to provide emergency shelter, traditional refugee services having been overwhelmed.
Plus, the emergency creation of a rapidly growing tent city set up by the Canadian army at the border, to handle the growing backlog.
None of this is surprising, given Trudeau’s tweet on Jan. 27, which read: “To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength.” #WelcomeTo Canada.
So far, there have been more refugee claims in Quebec in 2017 than all of last year,...Read More
