Toronto’s Emergency Shelters Are Being Overwhelmed By Illegal Border Crossers

As the Trudeau government continues to allow our border to be disrespected, the crisis worsens.

With the illegal border crisis continuing due to inaction on the part of the Trudeau government, Toronto’s emergency shelter system is bursting at the seams.

As noted in a recent Globe & Mail report, “a wave of asylum seekers has descended onto Canada’s largest city.”

“Many of them are families. All are in need of housing, adding pressure to Toronto’s already-strained shelter system in a high-priced city with limited affordable housing. To deal with the pressure, the city asked two colleges to open their student dorms to refugee claimants for the summer and there are plans to erect four tents in the city to serve as extra shelter space later this year.”

Shelter usage has nearly doubled, and the trend keeps going up.

Keep in mind, the Toronto shelter system was designed to be used by Canadians in need, and the influx of illegal crossers means there is less space available for our citizens.

The report also notes that the number of refugee claims made in Canada has reached a record high, with 55,360 claims still outstanding.

Disturbingly, rather than look for ways to stem the flow of illegal border crossers and ensure that taxpayer resources are used on helping taxpayers, there is a growing effort to convince everyone that the growing influx is the ‘new normal.’

‘“We are at the beginning of this new normal, the very beginning,” says Francisco Rico-Martinez, co-director of the FCJ Refugee Centre, who expects more arrivals from Central and South America – people fleeing violence who no longer see the United States as an option.

With pressures likely to grow, “we have to get ready,” he said, by adjusting long-term planning and viewing this shift with a global perspective.

In Toronto, which last year reaffirmed its status as a sanctuary city, all residents receive full access to city services, regardless of their documentation status. Children can attend school, families can access health care or social assistance and people can apply for work permits while waiting for decisions on their claims.”

This means we are being asked to accept a situation in which taxpayers pay more and more to fund services for people who entered Canada illegally. This will weaken our social programs, meaning worse healthcare and worse education systems for Canadian citizens.

Unfortunately, it’s no surprise that the Trudeau government is doing nothing to end the crisis. They want Canada to be a ‘post-national state,’ and such a state won’t do anything to prioritize our own citizens.

I hope that the city of Toronto is paying for this themselves, but of course not, they are asking for every ones tax dollars to cover this huge expense, illegally. If these corrupt politicians want a sanctuary country or city they should themselves have the money etc to cover these costs, not expect over taxed Canadians in a no longer existing country to lose everything to make their illegal unfair agendas work, again we do not have a real Canadian government, a government for Canada not one for these radical agendas to bring our country to collapse, re hurting the… Read more »

Those from Mexico, Central America and the Middle East had more than enough money to make it all the way to Canada. They illegally cross the border and now get a free ride?? Nope, life costs money. Stay in a hotel, eat out, pay for taxi’s or travel. No need whatsoever to provide everything for free while Canadians get pushed to the back of the line. Torontonians – don’t pay for anything. demand equal treatment and benefits. Register in a nice hotel with room service, claiming “refugee – no english” and rent out your house or apartment. Walk into any… Read more »

A national coalition of 120 organizations dedicated to ending child poverty released a report last week entitled ‘Campaign 2000.’ The top 10 Federal ridings for child poverty rate are listed. Toronto Centre, Ontario (Liberal) scored at 40%, just happens to be Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s riding. Toronto Centre has a high percentage of visible minority, immigrant, and Indigenous children and families. Yet, Toronto City Council will be building pre-fab structures at a cost of 2.5 million each for the influx of illegal immigrants. The structures will be placed on vacant city property based on transit and social services access.… Read more »

SEND THE ILLEGALS TO JIHADI JUSTIN TRUDEAU PALACE HOME AND TO EVERY LIBERAL MPS HOME AND TO EVERY MEDIA HOME AND OFFICES AS WELL.
NO WONDER I LIKE TRUMP. HE LOVES HIS COUNTRY VERY MUCH, WHEREAS LOVES HIMSELF FIRST BEFORE HIS COUNTRY.

I listen to the voices of muslims who are afraid of the dangers they see unfolding right before their eyes in Canada. Many of them fled from persecution rape and torture into Canada only to encounter their problems right here in Canada.

Anyone who got past kindergarten could have predicted that one — well, with the obvious exception of the one what allowed this to happen.

The invasion and ultimate destruction of Canada continues and will be ramped up in the coming years. This is what happens to a people and society who do not value their heritage and culture. This is what happens to people who think that all cultures are equal, they are not.
