Because the Trudeau government shows continued weakness and refuses to secure the Canadian border, our country is going to face another big wave of illegal border crossers.
In the wake of the Trump Administration promising to end a program that gave about 60,000 Haitians temporary residence in the United States, analysts expect Canada to get a big new surge of illegal border crossers.
It should be pointed out that Canada had offered similar temporary residence in the wake of the Haiti earthquake, and the Trudeau government actually revoked that protection before the U.S. did – something you rarely hear in the establishment media.
As noted by the CP “Stephane Handfield, an immigration lawyer who represents asylum seekers, said he expects a high number of Haitian refugee applicants again next summer. He said many Haitians believe all they need to do to settle in Canada is to reach the border and fill out an application for refugee status. Jean-Pierre Fortin, president of a union representing customs and immigration officers, said he too expects another wave of Haitian asylum seekers over the next few months. “We’re still trying to manage the crisis from last summer,” he said.”
Weakness will lead to more illegal crossings
With Canada’s public services already stretched passed their limits – considering governments are running massive budget deficits – more illegal border crossings will mean higher taxes and fewer services for Canadian citizens.
Had the Trudeau government made very clear that zero asylum claims will be accepted from illegal crossers, and taken steps to boost the number of border security officers (and military) on the border, it would have created a strong deterrent effect to stop people from crossing.
Also, they knew that this decision from the U.S. was coming, and should have prepared for it.
Instead, the government has done nothing except send a few MPs to talk about how people shouldn’t try crossing into Canada. That approach is far too weak, and the comments in the report above make it clear that it has failed.
The Trudeau government is more focused on being politically correct than they are on strengthening respect for Canada’s borders, and as a result, a big influx of illegal border crossers is undoubtedly on the way.
