The Trudeau government is ramming through its plan to boost immigration levels, despite survey after survey showing that Canadians oppose this idea.
An Angus Reid poll from August 2018 found that half of Canadians want lower immigration compared to only 6% who want increased numbers. Likewise, another Angus Reid poll from earlier that month, which focused on illegal immigration, found that two-thirds of Canadians believe we accept too many asylum seekers.
Federal Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen took aim at the Ontario government on Thursday, saying Doug Ford’s government is stoking fears around asylum seekers and is not offering solutions to the issue of illegal border crossers.
“They are not engaged. Instead they have unfortunately decided to engage in fear mongering and demonizing of asylum seekers, which is not what Canada is all about,” said Hussen in an interview with CBC News Network’s Power & Politics.
The minister was responding to a news release from the Ontario government that said the federal government does not have a “credible” plan to deal with asylum seekers crossing into Canada.
Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic will not sign the UN’s Global Compact for Migration (GCM), Croatian newsportal Direktno reports.
The website bases the decision on a Facebook post by Croatian TV journalist Velimir Bujanec. He asked her position on the GCM after a lot of people we’re interested in her stance.
In the answer his editorial board received, President Grabar-Kitarovic literally states: ‘Be assured I will not sign the ‘Marrakech Agreement’, Bujanec writes on Facebook.
Macleans published this Liberal Party propaganda piece on the UN’s Global Compact For Migration co-authored by Ahmed Hussen. As far as I know the compact is non-binding but as we have seen the Liberal government has opened the immigration floodgates and will no doubt use it as an excuse to support their irresponsible immigration policy.
One day after the Liberal government unveiled plans to ramp up immigration levels to 350,000 people by 2021, the Conservative immigration critic won’t say what she believes the figure should be.
The number is not the point, according to Michelle Rempel.
“Justin Trudeau has no credibility to set Canada’s immigration levels,” she said Thursday at a news conference.
Do read this, the Liberals are swamping Canada with unwanted and unnecessary levels of immigration and ramping up the “Temporary Foreign Workers” scam.
This is immigration policy designed solely for corporate and political gain, you are collateral damage.
Depressed wages, contrived shortages and increased costs of everything – you name it you’ll suffer it with a carbon tax on top.
Why Canada will lead the charge on the UN’s global refugee plan
Op-ed: The UN’s global compact on refugees could be a game-changer—and Canada is well-placed to help make it a reality, say two cabinet ministers and a UN official
Why does the MSM give this Canadian hater a platform?
Immigration detainee Ebrahim Toure finally free after more than five years
The 47-year-old failed refugee claimant was arrested by the Canada Border Services Agency on Feb. 23, 2013. He was jailed indefinitely because immigration authorities believed he would not show up for his deportation if it was ever arranged. In the end, the CBSA conceded what Toure’s lawyers had argued for years — that they could not deport him.
Toure…believes he was born in The Gambia and may also have a right to citizenship in Guinea, where he spent much of his childhood. But he can’t prove his claim to either country, and neither would issue him travel documents.
From the Star – Quebec provides a warning that Scheer should be careful about making immigration a campaign theme
We’ve seen enough of the Milk Man’s style to know there is no chance of immigration becoming anything more than than the usual vote buying scam. The CPC, LPC and NDP are no different on immigration, they may disagree on the means i.e Trudeau’s Open Borders scandal but in the end they all favour the same thing – continued mass immigration. And they are not picky about where the bodies come from. The CPC talked out of both sides of its mouth and were happy to facilitate a mass influx from Islamist states during their tenure, reaching a peak of 25% of the total annual intake.
Mass Immigration buys ethnic voting blocs and that is why no federal leader has the guts to say NO. Maxime Bernier has mentioned the Elephant in the room of bad immigration policy – Islam. No other leader will discuss the reality of Islam’s incompatibility with Western democracy. Instead we are fed propaganda, propaganda that is designed to humiliate and demonize anyone who dissents and points to the inconvenient truth about Islam, an inconvenient truth that is played out daily world wide wherever large numbers of Islamists have been allowed to settle. Islam is a violent supremacist cult, it does not “Do” integration.
To his credit Bernier also declared that immigration policy must serve the interests of Canadian citizens. That seems like common sense, just don’t expect it from any of the mainstream parties.
We are well on our way to becoming Sweden and it may already be too late to arrest the rot.
Some rich foreigners seeking Canadian residency under a special Quebec program for wealthy investors couldn’t point to the province on a map, while others submitted fake documents or disguised their assets — yet many of them were still accepted for immigration, former civil servants say.
The officials, charged with administering the Quebec Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP), say they were sometimes pressured into ignoring signs that applicants’ fortunes were founded on corruption or other ill-gotten gains.
Heron Gate mass eviction: ‘We never expected this in Canada’
Ottawa, Canada – Binto Mohamed hasn’t had a good night’s sleep since May. That’s when she received a letter telling her that her family of 10 had until September 30 to find a new home.
“There’s a piece of me missing, because of the stress,” she says, standing in the middle of her dimly-lit kitchen, the air thick and sticky in the overpowering August heat.
Mohamed, a mother of eight, knows her house is far from perfect.
The kitchen sink is about half full of dirty, brownish water; the drain hasn’t worked for the past year, and despite putting in a request to have it repaired five months ago, it’s still blocked.
I missed this story when it appeared in August. Funny that our MSM has not covered this diversity.
A Toronto man ordered out of Canada for being a member of the notorious crime gang MS-13 has won a reprieve — with a judge accepting that his MS-13 gang tattoos could lead people to think he is a member of MS-13.
The decision to grant René Pacheco another hearing to assess the danger of deporting him to his native El Salvador means the same tattoos that prompted his deportation order have now saved him from immediate deportation.
Assaults on ICE agents reached a decade high in 2017, and assaults on Border Patrol agents have also surged in recent years, according to new government numbers that seem to back up agents’ claims that illegal immigrants are increasingly looking to fight rather than flee.
The new numbers, reported by Homeland Security’s inspector general, could even be underselling the problem, investigators said, because the government doesn’t do a good job of tracking incidents, and agents and officers don’t always report them properly.
Abdoul Abdi had one advantage over Kevin Pinder.
He had an advocate, a tough lawyer who went to bat for him, and even two groups, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and Justice for Children and Youth, who were granted intervener status in Abdi’s most recent court case.
A study from the University of Basel has concluded that while immigration may have short-term economic benefits for Western nations, in the long term it could heavily strain a country’s welfare system.
Earlier this week, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced another massive enforcement operation resulting in hundreds of immigrant arrests.
The 30-day operation took place in several midwestern states and rounded up immigrants who had prior criminal convictions. Those convictions included child sexual exploitation, rape, attempted murder, assault, burglary, and drug trafficking.
