New data show 69% of illegal border-crossers are being granted asylum

Almost 70 per cent of refugees who illegally cross the U.S. border into Canada are granted asylum here, despite the widespread public view that these border-crossers are not real refugees in need of protection.

    As someone who’s husband came to this country LEGALLY, which is an expensive and lengthy process – this pisses me off beyond words.

      As somebody that went through that expensive and lengthy, I am pissed off with you.

      • Thank you Canada for making it so easy for the US to get rid of illegals.

          We’ll probably be taking care of your black problem too after the 2nd ACW starts. :^(

            You really got that right!

        “…I am pissed off with you.”
        That didn’t quite come out the way you wanted it to, Willem. :^)

          LOL! Let’s eat, Grandma! vs. Let’s eat Grandma!

          I have to admit that sentence can use a comma or something.
          I will correct.

      Most people don’t like it when someone cuts in front of the line rather than waiting in line like most other people do and rightfully so!

    Once they file a refugee claim (they don’t even have to be accepted, they only have to file the claim), they are deemed homeless and so go ahead of Canadians who have been waiting for over a decade for government public housing or for seniors homes.

    In “santuary cities” like Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, they are given welfare benefits (money, free medication and dental care), though not legally entitled to it unless given “landed status”.

      As someone who just had to pay for significant dental work (100% out of pocket!) that *also* pisses me off. Excuse me while I go get my prescription for blood pressure filled. (Also 100% out of pocket.)

        All are equal but visible minorities illegally entering the country are more equal.

      • Lightstream

        I can’t even afford to pay for some of the dental work I need done.
        Gee, that ‘white privilege’ is really helping me.

      The Canadians who voted Trudeau in should have their asses kicked.

      Where are the porters to carry the bags?

      • JoKeR

        The RCMP will be along any minute to welcome them and apologize for not acknowledging them as the Master Race.

        • Clink9

          Hopefully they can wash their feet like the pope.

      • mauser 98

        damn… the indignity

        am sure their pan-seared foie gras , Hennessy VS in a Schott Zwiesel snifter was ready for them

        The RCMP? Royal Canadian Mounted Porters.

  • Lightstream

    As long a you’re a minority and dirt-poor you’re welcome in Canada.
    Trudeau would take in the world if he could get enough tax money out of us to do it.

    It always irks me how they; the Star, CBC, Globe; always, always seek the opinions of refugee advocates for these stories and almost never from outside critics. It’s like they want to shape public opinion to favour one side of the issue. 69% is inexcusable and 63% overall is a joke. With odds like that no wonder our system is overloaded when we reward these charlatans so regularly.
