I agree with your post completely. When the :cuss: hits the fan and we finally wake up to what is going on right now it will be a total fiscal nightmare for all taxpaying Canadians, whether they realize it or not at present.

To paraphrase a poster from the Calgary Herald:

"No border means no country. So why the hell pay taxes?" :biggrin:

The majority of the folks crossing into Canada illegally are actually economic migrants, who are making bogus refugee claims as a means of circumventing the law and being allowed to remain in Canada. However, if the situation is allowed to continue, the cost to the Canadian taxpayer will be enormous.
An increase in asylum claims in Canada could eventually mean a staggering 11-year wait for a hearing and $2.97 billion in social supports for claimants in the meantime


The social support costs for claimants – education, social assistance and health care – were $600 a month each in 2016-17


The consequence of all this is that genuine refugees will have to wait even longer to get into Canada, and there will be less money to help them if and when they do finally make it here.

Our Government, however, despite being aware of all these facts is doing absolutely NOTHING to help correct the situation.
Canada’s immigration minister Ahmed Hussen has reminded potential refugee claimants that entering through unofficial crossings is illegal, and has said they should instead submit their refugee claims in the U.S. Yet, words are meaningless if they’re not backed up by consequences.

In these circumstances, the RCMP is doing its best to give the impression that laws are being enforced. Its officers arrest the migrants for crossing illegally, but quickly release them so that they can proceed with their refugee claims. Potential claimants coming from the U.S. are fully aware of this game. Many Canadians have seen images of the absurd way illegal migrants are being handled on the old Roxham Road several kilometres from the official Lacolle crossing. If this is allowed to continue, it will almost certainly undermine public confidence in our immigration system.

If Ottawa believes the U.S. is safe, then the mode by which migrants enter Canada should be irrelevant to whether they’re permitted to claim refugee status. Canada is a sovereign country; migrants do not generally have an unqualified right to enter its territory, regardless of any agreements on border cooperation. Some commentators have suggested the U.S. can somehow force the loophole to stay in effect. This is inaccurate. As long as Canada considers the U.S. to be safe for refugee claimants, it can refuse migrants entry even if the entire agreement were suspended (our Supreme Court has said refugee claimants in Canada are entitled to a hearing only if they risk being returned to a dangerous country).

The European Union has a similar agreement between its members (known as the Dublin Regulation), which also tries to avoid the “asylum shopping” problem. It does not contain a loophole based on a migrant’s mode of entry, so EU members are supposed to send refugee claimants back to the first EU country that they entered.

Bob Rae is heading off to Myanmar on a fact-finding mission re Rhohingas so we might be soon inundated with another wave of refugees.

These are the muslim folk who were run out of the country and now are homeless.
