There’s no such thing as refugees from the United States

Canada is a welcoming country with a proud history of accepting and resettling some of the world’s most vulnerable and persecuted people. There are refugee success stories all around us, and we should always have space in our country to protect those fleeing violence and oppression.

We should have no patience, however, for those who take advantage of our generosity by purposely thwarting our immigration and national security laws.

The recent surge in asylum claims being filed in rural Manitoba is one such example.
