Canadas Immigration Policy Totally Out of Control

Recommended Posts

I guess the turd has sensed his immigration platform is not going over well with Canadians, and since an election is near:

“Buried in this year's omnibus budget implementation bill is a series of amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act that essentially disqualify asylum-seekers who have made a claim for refugee protection in any other country. Once the bill receives royal assent, an asylum-seeker can be deported without a hearing, which would seem to violate the Charter as affirmed by Singh v. Canada, where the Supreme Court determined that Charter rights extend to everyone physically on Canadian soil.”

Another Trudeau disaster. Guess he changed his mind and decided to simply open the gates wide open.

From 2017

The Liberal government is repealing a measure brought in by the Conservatives that required newcomers to live with their sponsoring spouse for two years or face deportation.

The conditional permanent residency status policy, which kicked in October 2012, was designed to clamp down on marriage fraud. But immigrant advocates said it had the effect of trapping some people in violent, abusive relationships.

Under the Conservative policy, sponsored spouses and partners were given a status of "conditional" permanent residence, and were required to cohabit and remain in a conjugal relationship with their sponsor for two years. If they didn't, their status could be revoked, leading to deportation.

At the time, former immigration minister Jason Kenney said the change targeted con artists who dupe Canadians into marriage then dump them once they get to Canada. The measure was also designed to deal with "marriages of convenience," where two persons pretend to be in love for one to gain entry to Canada, often in exchange for money.

Conservative immigration critic Michelle Rempel said the 2012 policy was brought in to address a real problem of marriage fraud, and called the Liberal move to repeal it a "giant step backward."  "I think it's the wrong approach," she said. "I think it erodes public confidence in the integrity of the immigration system and it puts vulnerable persons at greater risk."

Notice – Government of Canada Eliminates Conditional Permanent Residence


Ottawa, April 28, 2017— The Government of Canada has removed the condition that applied to some sponsored spouses or partners of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to live with their sponsor in order to keep their permanent resident status.

Under the old regulation, you had to live with your sponsor for two years if, at the time you applied:

There is all the flooding going on in Ontario and Quebec, 2000 members of the military called out, mayors and politicians screaming for volunteers to come and help sandbag.

We have thousands of asylum seekers being housed, clothed and fed at our expense, why aren't they being "volunteered" to help?

Don't need language skills or any other skill set, just pick up a shovel.

This will back up the courts for years:

The Canadian Press 
Published Friday, May 10, 2019 4:24AM EDT 
Last Updated Friday, May 10, 2019 10:22AM EDT

OTTAWA -- The Supreme Court says a Pakistani man being held in immigration detention had the right to challenge his imprisonment in person before a judge.

Although Tusif Ur Rehman Chhina was deported to Pakistan in 2017, the high court agreed to hear his case because it rarely gets to rule on the ancient legal remedy known as habeas corpus -- the right to have the validity of one's detention to be reviewed for whether it's lawful.

The high court ruled 6-1 in favour of Chhina, opening new avenues of appeal for migrants facing lengthy detentions.

Friday's ruling centres on Chhina, who was granted refugee protection in Canada in 2006 but was later detained after authorities learned he had a criminal record and after he had fled custody.

He failed in 12 attempts to the Immigration and Review Board to be released and was eventually deported.

The federal government argued that extending the right to direct hearings before judges to migrant detainees would create uncertainty in the legal processes involving these decisions.

The Justice Department has argued that the current system offers a comprehensive and expert process by an independent, quasi-judicial board that provides a meaningful review.

Chhina applied for habeas corpus while in an Alberta maximum-security facility in May 2016.

His refugee status had been revoked in April 2013, and he was placed in immigration detention as danger to the public and because he was considered unlikely to appear for his removal.

He was released from custody six months later because of delays related to his removal, and went missing again before he was re-arrested in November 2015.


Destroying the country proving how democratic we can be.

So Ralph and Bill say the country is safe, the liberals take public security VERY many guys like this have wandered in to the country?


A man from Nigeria who was claiming asylum in Canada has been sentenced to 52 months in prison for sexually assaulting a woman in a psychiatric ward at a Montreal hospital. 

Quebec court Judge Dennis Galiatsatos sentenced 40 year-old Owolabi Adejojo in March, calling his behaviour "despicable."

The assaults took place in February 2018, one month after Adejojo entered Canada from the U.S. and filed a refugee claim.

It's not clear how Adejojo was able to get into Canada, why authorities didn't seem to be aware of his assault charges in the U.S., or how he ended up in the psychiatric ward.

"I must confess that the lack of detail and information given to the court by the defence about the accused's personal situation was highly unusual and somewhat unsettling," Galiatsatos noted in his decision.

"The court is left completely in the dark about who he is and what his personal circumstances are."

Galiatsatos's decision said all that is known about Adejojo is that he was born in Nigeria and living with his wife and three children in the U.S. with no status for three years before he left them to come to Canada.

He has no family or job here, and no ties to Montreal.

Adejojo has no criminal record in the U.S., but Radio-Canada found an incident report from police in Baltimore involving him.

In October 2017, he was arrested and charged with assault.

The incident report said Adejojo attacked two men he'd been staying with at an apartment with a broken beer bottle.

The charges were suspended, which, in the state of Maryland, means they're set aside for a year but prosecutors have the option to reopen them at any time.

Radio-Canada also found another court document ordering Adejojo to keep the peace and be on good behavior from December 2017, although it's not clear from the court document what the order is related to.

Asylum seekers are supposed to be subject to thorough background checks. Reporters asked federal Border Security Minister Bill Blair about the case Tuesday morning in Ottawa.

Canada has a problem:


Ads urging women to come to Canada to give birth tout the value of providing their child with Canadian citizenship.

“Go to Canada to vacation and give birth to a child,” says one online ad targeting Mainland Chinese mothers. “U.S. rejected your visa? No problem! In fact, Canada is better!”

Ads tell women that going to Canada for automatic citizenship is a “gift” for their babies since their children will be able to get free education, cheap university tuition and student loans, according to translations provided by Liberal MLA Jas Johal and verified by Postmedia.

More good news from the land of the turd:


Hundreds of criminals connected to the illegal drug trade are freely plying their trades as importers, go-betweens and hitmen in Canada — according to Quebec news outlet TVA Nouvelles — largely because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government dropped the visa requirement for Mexican travelers.

TVA investigative journalist Felix Seguin spoke to several in-the-know sources who revealed there are 400 criminals who have recently entered Canada to traffic drugs — half of them living in Quebec while the other half are presumed to be mainly operating in the Toronto area.

At least several of the estimated 400 who recently infiltrated the Canadian border are believed to have used fake Mexican passports.

Mexican asylum claims skyrocketed once Trudeau waived the visa, going up from 260 in 2016 to over 3,300 in 2018. The visa requirement was originally put in place by the Harper government in 2009 to curb a spike of asylum claims from Mexico. The policy largely worked, with claims dropping down to double digits in 2013.


But Ralph still says we’re safe:


Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale’s office responded by saying government agencies have a robust screening process and work closely with Canada’s Five Eyes partners to detect criminals.

Goodale’s office also mentioned how the Trudeau government passed legislation to allow the CBSA to be informed when individuals leave the country, “addressing a key security gap.” No direct response was given for the hundreds of criminals who purportedly infiltrated Canada’s border security and remain in the country.

Federal bureaucrats tried to stall the release of details surrounding the Liberals’ surprise payment to Quebecers living near the main entry point for irregular asylum claimants, according to an internal document marked "secret."

Last November, Ottawa dished out tax-free stipends ranging from $2,500 to $25,000 (based on proximity) to roughly 45 homes, for the "inconvenience" of having more traffic and noise outside their front doors.

No similar payment was made to Manitobans.

Border Security Minister Bill Blair contrasted the thousands of people entering along Roxham Road in Quebec, where dozens of security personnel were stationed, to the more spread-out crossings near Emerson.

In a document marked "secret," obtained through a freedom-of-information request, public servants recommended the Liberals not make any public statements nor media releases about the payments, "to minimize possible negative reactions," as well as risks.

The payments came to light when residents contacted local media. At time, the Liberals refused to provide a ballpark figure of how much these expenses would cost, until they were finalized.

In March, facing a formal request by Conservative MP Ted Falk, the Liberals produced an estimate of $405,000 in compensation, out of an original budget of $485,000.

Number of employed immigrants in Canada reaches new high, even as more are welcomed in

The increase was likely driven in part by the country's strong job-creation run, which has encouraged companies to hire more people who usually find themselves at the margins of the workforce


OTTAWA — The share of recent immigrants of prime working age who had employment reached a new high last year, even though Canada has been opening its doors to more newcomers than ever before, according to an internal federal analysis.

The increase was likely driven in part by the country’s strong job-creation run, which has encouraged companies to hire more people who usually find themselves at the margins of the workforce, says the document prepared for Finance Minister Bill Morneau. Immigrants who arrived less than five years ago fall into that category.

The analysis provides a closer look at the impact of immigration on a labour force that has posted big gains in recent years.

After economic slowdown last winter the unemployment rate has hovered near 40-year lows. As a result, employers have reported challenges when trying to fill job vacancies.

“The performance of recent immigrants on the labour market has markedly improved in recent years, especially when considering the scale of immigrants arriving in Canada every year,” reads the January briefing note, obtained through access-to-information law.

The memo says the employment rate for immigrants aged 25 to 54 who landed less than five years ago, was 71 per cent last year. It was the indicator’s highest level since 2006 — which is as far back as the data goes.






“Similar trends are witnessed for immigrants that landed between five and 10 years ago,” the briefing said.

The topic of immigration has become more polarized in a number of countries, which may reflect the poor socio-economic outcomes for immigrants and economic stagnation of the middle class who use immigration as a scapegoat


The labour-force participation and unemployment rates of recent immigrants were better than before the last recession, over a decade ago. Selection criteria have targeted immigrants with better earnings prospects and recent newcomers to Canada are more highly educated, the analysis said.

The share of prime-aged immigrants with post-secondary educations rose from 75 per cent in 2006 to 80 per cent in 2018. That’s nine percentage points higher than the share in the general population in the same age range.

Canada has welcomed more immigrants in recent years — and the government intends to bring in more. It has set targets of nearly 331,000 newcomers this year, 341,000 in 2020 and 350,000 in 2021.

The numbers are rising at a time of growing public debate about some aspects of immigration. It could become an issue in the lead-up to the October federal vote.

A lobby group representing chief executives of Canada biggest companies has urged political parties to avoid aggravating public concerns about immigration during the campaign.

Business leaders made clear the economic case in favour of immigration, especially as baby boomers age and the country seeks workers to help fund social programs, like public health care, through taxes.

The Finance Department document argues that, in general, immigrants in Canada have done well because the country has maintained a positive attitude towards immigration.

“The topic of immigration has become more polarized in a number of countries, which may reflect the poor socio-economic outcomes for immigrants and economic stagnation of the middle class who use immigration as a scapegoat,” it says.

“The economic benefits of immigration are largely dependent on how well newcomers integrate into the labour market. Increasing immigration — or any increase in the population — will drive demand for goods and services, contributing to economic growth.”

The document also noted the strong economic and education outcomes for second-generation Canadians, compared to children of two Canadian-born parents.

Among individuals aged 25 to 44, 95 per cent of second-generation Canadians had completed high school compared to 89 per cent of those whose parents were both Canadian-born. Forty-one per cent of second-generation Canadians had university degrees versus 24 per cent of people with two Canadian-born parents.

In 2017, second-generation Canadians earned average employment incomes of $55,500, versus $51,600 for children of Canadian-born parents.

I don’t think anyone is against immigration if it’s done legally. That being said, I believe immigration entirely from one place in the world strictly for political purposes will only harm the country in the long run.

A Liberal MP is calling on the federal government to address the practice of non-resident mothers coming to Canada to give birth, which he calls an “awful practice” that must be stopped.

Joe Peschisolido, Liberal MP for Steveston-Richmond East, says he has spoken with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister Ahmed Hussen about the issue of “birth tourism” and expects a response from government to be forthcoming.

Mr. Peschisolido said such practice is taking advantage of Canadian immigration and health-care systems.

“You have folks who are buying their way into Canada. Their children spent the first seven to 14 days of their lives and then they leave, and they become Canadian citizens without contributing anything to Canada," he said in an interview on Thursday.

"These folks don’t deserve Canadian citizenship.”

I wonder if the communities that are named were asked if they wanted to be involved?  Of course the next question is how will those communities fund the money likely needed to support their newcomers?

Ottawa picks 11 communities for pilot immigration project

The federal government has picked 11 communities from across Canada to kick off a new pilot program aimed at attracting immigrants to rural and northern communities.

Program aims to fill labour gaps from declining birth rate, aging population

The federal government has picked 11 communities from across Canada to kick off a new pilot program aimed at attracting immigrants to rural and northern communities.

The goal of the program is to bring newcomers to regions confronting severe labour shortages due to a youth exodus, declining birth rate and aging population.

Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen is making a formal announcement today in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.

"The equation is quite simple. Attracting and retaining newcomers with the needed skills equals a recipe for success for Canada's rural and northern communities," he said in a news release. "We have tested a similar immigration pilot in Atlantic Canada and it has already shown tremendous results for both newcomers and Canadians."

The selected communities are:

  • Thunder Bay, Ont.
  • Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.
  • Sudbury, Ont. 
  • Timmins, Ont.
  • North Bay, Ont.
  • Gretna-Rhineland-Altona-Plum Coulee, Man.
  • Brandon, Man.
  • Moose Jaw, Sask.
  • Claresholm, Alta.
  • West Kootenay region of B.C.
  • Vernon, B.C.

The government will begin working with communities this summer to help them identify candidates for permanent residence as early as this fall. The first newcomers under the pilot are expected to arrive in 2020.

'Continued vibrancy of rural areas'

Communities were selected as a representative sample of regions to lay out a "blueprint" for the rest of the country. 

About 78 per cent newcomers to Canada settle in big cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver under existing federal economic immigration programs. 

Rural Economic Development Minister Bernadette Jordan said the pilot program will support the economic development of the communities by testing new, community-driven approaches to fill diverse labour market needs.

"The initial results of the Atlantic immigration pilot show that it has been a great success," she said in a news release. "I'm pleased we are able to introduce this new pilot to continue experimenting with how immigration can help ensure the continued vibrancy of rural areas across the country."
