A deliberate misinformation campaign over social media is being blamed for the recent flood of Haitians illegally crossing into Canada.
Messages sent throughout the Haitian community in the U.S. reportedly told recipients that Canada was automatically accepting all Haitians. This supposed “WhatsApp hoax” even told them that Canada was paying the bill for all costs.
No wonder so many aspiring refugees have arrived on our doorstep in recent days.
But that’s not the only false information being spread when it comes to the migrant crisis on our southern border.
