Canada blasted for ‘needlessly punitive’ immigration detention system

Despite progress made by the federal government in the past year in addressing some systemic issues with the detention system, the group said its treatment of immigration detainees, including children and individuals with mental health issues, continues to violate binding international law.

    Yes, because it goes against feminist Trudeau’s own policy that Canada has no borders. And the CBC is upset this morning, about the heart breaking story that illegal immigrants that walk over the border, are having to wait so long to get a hearing. Its a good thing it doesn’t stop them from getting all sorts of free stuff.

    Already bearded men claim to be unaccompanied children. Any whiff of preferential treatment, and all migrants will also claim that they have mental heath issues. Then they’ll claim that the immigration process is the cause, and ask for their $10.5 million.

    Why are we still a member of the UN? Apparently “arbitrary detention, as well as cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment” against *ahem* CRIMINALS includes better health care than most citizens get, free dental and eye care which no citizens get, and free room and board. The horror, The horror.

    Canada must not question or detain Muslim immigrants or you will be outed for your Islamophobia!

    When there is nothing else, always raise the issue of non existent international law.

  • Say what now? Has anyone been paying attention to what has been going on for the past few months?

    Is this the same as not having “food security” while North Korean children are starving?
