Canada Liberal Government Changing Laws To Stop Asylum Seekers Entering Its Territory

So much for saying they will accpet those that aren't allowed in the US. The liberal government of Canada run by the white version of Obama is changing its laws to stop accepting asylum seekers.

From Liberal BBC:
Canada intends to change the law to make it harder for asylum seekers rejected by countries like the US to file refugee claims at the border.

The move comes as thousands of asylum seekers have crossed the border after their claims were rejected in the US.

Amendments were introduced on Monday evening in the Liberal government's 392-page omnibus budget bill.

An influx of asylum seekers crossing at the US-Canada border has become a hot button political issue.

The law would allow immigration officers at the border to reject refugee claims if the asylum seeker has already made a claim in another country that has an immigration information-sharing agreement with Canada.

These countries include the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

The asylum seeker would no longer be entitled to an oral hearing and the claim could not be appealed to an independent tribunal.

Instead, denied claimants would have the right to submit a written, pre-removal risk assessment, which lawyer Kevin Wiener says has about a 3% success rate.

"I expect this to be a major change for Canada's refugee system and I'm surprised to see it buried in a budget bill," he told the BBC in an email

  • @visafree, Canada is run by a liberal prime minister. And he is reversing his country's policy according to the needs of his people. And he promised to take them in. Now he is doing the opposite.

    @z, Justin is having a bad time. His country is calling for his resignation. Something to do with stopping a investigation on a firm that gave him money.
