Quebec sees biggest increase in illegal crossings from U.S., RCMP says
Quebec is dealing with Canada’s largest increase in the number of asylum seekers crossing illegally into the country from the U.S., law enforcement officials said Monday.
It is an increase that refugee lawyers are attributing to uncertainty over immigration policies in the U.S., which have become a hallmark of the young administration of President Donald Trump.
Ivy League Schools Prepare To Sue Over Trump’s Immigration Halt

Asylum seekers crossing into Canada need life-saving supplies, says U.S. Border Angel
A member of the U.S. Border Angels, a group that provides life-saving supplies for people crossing the U.S.-Mexico border unlawfully, says Canadians have a duty to help would-be refugee claimants who sneak into Canada.

Hating Valentine’s: Why Islamists and the radical Left loathe the Day of Love
The train is never late: every year that Valentine’s comes around, the Muslim world erupts with ferocious rage, with its leaders doing everything in their power to suffocate the festivity that comes with the celebration of private romance. Imams around the world thunder against Valentine’s every year — and the celebration of the day itself is literally outlawed in Islamist states.
In the West, meanwhile, leftist feminists are not to be outdone by their Islamist allies in reviling — and trying to exterminate — Valentine’s Day. Throughout many Women’s Studies Programs on American campuses, for instance, you will find the demonization of this day, since, as the disciples of Andrea Dworkin angrily explain, the day is a manifestation of how capitalist and homophobic patriarchs brainwash and oppress women — and push them into spheres of powerlessness.
Prosecutors won’t file charges against Muslim student suspected of hate-crime hoax
The Washtenaw County Prosecutors Office will not file charges against a University of Michigan student suspected by the Ann Arbor Police Department of a hate-crime hoax, an official with the office confirmed Monday to The College Fix.
In November, a female University of Michigan student told police days after the election that a white man demanded she remove her hijab or he would set her on fire with a lighter, an allegation later deemed false by police.
“This office has declined to authorize charges in that matter,” Steven Hiller, Chief Assistant Prosecutor, told The College Fix via email. “The office will not comment further on this case.”
