The Trudeau government is more interested in pathetic political correctness than they are in enforcing our laws.
As if there was any doubt, the Trudeau government has made it crystal clear that they have zero intention of dealing with the crisis at the border, and are instead doubling-down on weak political correctness.
As noted by the CP, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen is attacking the Ontario government for calling illegal border crossings what they are: Illegal.
“Last week a spokesman for Premier Doug Ford issued a statement describing asylum seekers as “illegal border crossers,” saying the influx has resulted in a housing crisis in Toronto and “threats to services that Ontario families depend on.
Ahmed Hussen, the federal minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, told a news conference today in Halifax that he’s “very concerned” by the comments made by Ford and Lisa MacLeod, the provincial cabinet minister responsible for immigration. Hussen, himself an immigrant from Somalia, says Canada has a legal obligation under national and international law to give a fair hearing to refugee claimants.”
Of course, Ford and MacLeod are correct here, and Hussen is wrong. It’s not ‘concerning’ to call illegal border crossings illegal, because that is simply what they are.
If someone enters Canada without permission outside of a legal border crossing it is by definition an illegal act.
What is actually concerning is Hussen’s refusal to call a spade a spade.
Think of the message this sends to people thinking about entering Canada illegally. They can see the minister of immigration actually criticizing Canada’s largest provincial government for calling the action illegal, while he does nothing to end the border crisis.
It will be even more of an incentive for people to enter Canada illegally, which means an even worsening betrayal of Canadian citizens and taxpayers, and a betrayal of those seeking to enter Canada the legal way.
As time goes on, the Trudeau government’s disloyalty to Canada just keeps on growing.
