On Monday, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen publicly rebuked Ontario’s new government for using the term “illegal border crossers” in a press release.
“I’m very concerned by Premier (Doug) Ford and (provincial) minister (Lisa) MacLeod really making statements that are difficult to understand when it comes to how they’re describing asylum seekers,” Hussen told reporters in Halifax.

…However, the book is far from a compendium of data or simple background on the topic. While composed of fewer than two hundred pages of text, it manages to provide a lot of thoughtful intellectual analysis of why immigration policy cannot be conceived in exclusively economic terms. This conviction has several principles underlying it. One is founded in an assessment of how and why multiculturalism works in tandem with high levels of immigration to undermine a clear sense among the nation’s newcomers of what is to be an American. The authors show that this stands in stark contrast to what took place during earlier periods of immigration when Americanization was very much expected of immigrants, and immigrants were required to “renounce and abjure” all foreign influences in order to gain citizenship. By contrast, from at least as early as the 1990s, there have been classes and textbooks used in American public schools for the teaching of immigrant children that promote ideas like the “reconquista” of the American southwest by Mexico.
The authors go from this to a larger point: it is not only a matter of whether immigrants are arriving with skills and knowledge but where they come from. If they are from societies with little knowledge of the basic ideas underlying American democratic pluralism and with a conscious or unconscious animus towards the predominant American traditions and beliefs, they may prove to be exceedingly difficult to assimilate.
it turns out that Trump was right all along. Strong borders he kept saying and they kept laughing, but they are not laughing now.
Guess who else wants to stop the “migrant invasion?”
Tough to keep up. Seems that our Progressives have lost interest in those kids separated at the border in favor of another cause celebre, namely the Supreme Court.
If not this, it’s always something else that’s got them howling in the streets.
With Justice Kennedy retiring, that gives President Trump his second chance, after Neil Gorsuch, to “stack the court.” With? With Constitutional Conservatives.
Hundreds of thousands of Central American migrants are walking right in. They’re not waiting in line. They’re using “asylum” requests as their E-ZPass. Just 12 percent of requests from El Salvadorans, 11 percent from Guatemalans and 7.5 percent from Hondurans are actually granted, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Never mind, the request gets them in the door.
United States government records show that nearly 68 percent of all refugees arriving in the country over the past nine months are Christian.
That information comes from the U.S. State Department. The acceptance rate represents a 16-year high for Christian refugees.
Yet some Christian activists are unhappy about the latest numbers. They note that the number of refugees accepted is much lower than that of recent years.
Of the 16,229 refugees admitted from October 1 to June 28, 10,949 were Christian. They were mainly from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ukraine, and Burma.
“some Christian activists” refers to those who made a financial killing settling Obama’s preferred refugees during his traitorous tenure.
Justin still has his pipeline full of the ususal suspects.
Cops say Therese Patricia Okoumou — a 44-year-old immigrant from the Democratic Republic of the Congo — was the person responsible for the Fourth of July protest.
She lives in the St. George neighborhood of Staten Island and is currently in federal custody, according to police sources.
If she’s the face of immigration the wall will be built that much sooner.
A national manhunt is underway for three illegal aliens who are accused of raping two teenagers in Bowling Green, Ohio.
WASHINGTON—Six days ago, Border Patrol agent Art Del Cueto arrested a Mexican national who had illegally crossed the southwest border in the Tucson, Arizona, sector.
Del Cueto said the man told him, “You guys as Americans are weak with your laws, and we love it.”
“I laughed at it,” Del Cueto said. “I’m sitting there going, how ironic is this that I’m explaining to a Mexican national how his country’s laws are tougher than ours and he turns around and just tells me, ‘Well, it’s not my fault you guys are weak. You guys need to toughen up.’”
On Tuesday, a Bush-appointed judge in the Southern District of California issued an injunction requiring government agencies to reunite immigrant children with their parents who have been detained for immigration violations or are going through asylum proceedings.
While the press is making much about the ruling, the timeline reveals how public sentiment ginned up by media reports has distorted this issue.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson stumped Univision anchor Enrique Acevedo after Carlson attempted to get Acevedo to explain how an “influx of poor people with low education levels and no jobs” makes a country “richer.”
Abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is fast becoming a litmus test for Democrats after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s shock victory in a Democratic primary.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Thursday became the first senator to call for the scrapping of ICE, arguing that it has become “a deportation force.”
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) followed suit on Friday, saying, “We should abolish ICE.”
And on Saturday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called for “replacing ICE” while tearing into the administration’s “ugly” immigration practices.
No policy debate is more filled with dishonesty and duplicity than immigration. The whine of political axes being ground is continually drowned out by Emma Lazarus sentimentalism, “we’re a nation of immigrants” clichés, promiscuous virtue-signaling, and the current weepy melodramas of children “ripped from their mother’s arms.” The whole sordid business exists, of course, to perfume some simple truths: Leviathan Dems want more voters and more dependents of the entitlement-industrial complex; Wall Street Republicans want plentiful cheap labor. The only thing missing are the facts about the reality of immigration both illegal and legal.
The man imprisoned for committing the biggest immigration scam in Canadian history was released on early parole even though he had not paid more than $900,000 in fines and “minimized his criminal behaviour,” according to a November 2017 Parole Board of Canada decision obtained by CBC News.
The board also noted Xun (Sunny) Wang had transferred all of his assets to his spouse “to avoid the Canada Revenue Agency fines.”
Despite “concerns,” the parole board was compelled to free Wang after he served one-third of his 7-year sentence, because he’s not at risk of committing a violent offence and his behaviour behind bars was “appropriate.”
Surjeet Singh Nahal, 56, lives in Alberta. He has had five wives, all from India. Immigration authorities know him well.
The first wife sponsored him into Canada as a permanent resident, and he later became a citizen. The second he sponsored, then promptly divorced after a few months. The third he tried to sponsor, but was refused because it appeared to be a “marriage of convenience,” designed to game the immigration system. The fourth he sponsored, stayed married for several years, then divorced.
President Donald Trump’s now-suspended policy of separating illegal immigrants from their children was hugely unpopular, but a pair of recent polls suggests voters do not support the pre-Trump status quo, either.
