The persecution of Kellie Leitch

Is it any wonder the Trudeau government isn’t serious about illegal immigration? Minister Freeland’s grand pappy was a Nazi collaborator  who lied to get into Canada.

In George Orwell’s 1984, doublethink was the ability to hold two contradictory views at the same time, which is the way Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals think about Canada’s immigration and refugee system.

On the one hand, they tell us, the system is working fine and so any attempts to reform it – see Tory leadership contender Kellie Leitch’s call for interviewing would-be immigrants, refugees and visitors to screen them for anti-Canadian values – must be rooted in “Islamophobia” and racism.

And yet, they make this allegation knowing, for example, that among the many gaping holes in our immigration and refugee system, there are an estimated 200,000 to 500,000 undocumented (illegal) foreign workers in Canada, while the Canada Border Services Agency has lost track of 44,000 people, mostly failed refugee claimants, who simply disappeared rather than comply with removal orders from Canada.
