Of course all the media in the US is filled with the news that Obama is going to deport fewer people while Canada goes on a serious hunt for criminal aliens.
From the CBC:
The federal government is seeking the public’s help again in its hunt for people wanted on immigration warrants, focusing on 32 foreign-born fugitives.
“They abused a valued privilege and are no longer welcome in our country,” said Public Safety Minister Vic Toews, launching the Canada Border Services Agency’s new website to identify non-Canadians convicted of crimes in Canada and subject to removal orders who have since disappeared.
Toews announced the latest list Thursday in Toronto, accompanied by his parliamentary secretary Candice Hoeppner, the parliamentary secretary to the defence minister, Chris Alexander, and the president of the Canada Border Services Agency, Luc Portelance.
The 32 people on Toews’s new list are in addition to 30 suspected of war crimes that he named on July 21, when the Canada Border Services Agency launched a website identifying the suspects and calling for any information that could lead to their whereabouts.
This list targets only a few of the estimated 1,400 individuals in the Toronto area, and approximately 2,700 individuals nationally who are currently wanted for removal from Canada.
Nine of the individuals on the new list were born in Jamaica. Four are from China and another four are from Guyana. Four were born in other Caribbean or Central American countries, and three are from Africa. The list also includes two born in India, two born in Sri Lanka, three born in European countries and one born in the United States. Two are women.
“They will find no haven on our shores,” Toews vowed.
Canadian readers may say this is just for media consumption and it’s not enough, but at least the ‘talk’ is headed in the right direction.
