Canada making an effort to get rid of refugee frauds, including those who are already citizens

Can you imagine such an effort here in the US?  I can’t.  But, I guess they have had enough of asylum abuse north of the border.

From the National Post:

The government wants more money to crack down on so-called bogus refugees and others who may be inadmissible to Canada on security grounds, according to supplementary spending estimates tabled in the House of Commons Thursday.

The Canada Border Services Agency and Justice Canada have asked for an additional $4.5 million to “support further investigations of refugee claims and legal proceedings” aimed at revoking the status of or removing individuals who’ve either already returned to their country of origin, are no longer deemed in need of asylum or have fraudulently obtained refugee status.

The funding is meant to “deter abuse of Canada’s refugee protection system.”

A number of other government departments are seeking a total of nearly $23-million to deal with permanent residents and foreign nationals who may be inadmissible on security grounds.


“Canadians have told us clearly that they want us to take action on this abuse — and our Government has listened.”

The additional costs are due in large part to Bill C-31, the Protecting Canada’s Immigration System Act, adopted in June. The legislation aims to deport so-called “bogus” refugees quicker and cracks down on human-smugglers, those who arrive in Canada en masse or hail from countries that are deemed “safe,” non producers of refugees.

Canada has a most-wanted list for immigrant fraudsters and criminals!

Besides C-31, the government has also made a concerted effort over the last year to strip thousands of newcomers of their citizenship or permanent residency status due to fraud.

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews has also been cracking down on removing foreign criminals on the Canada Border Service Agency’s “most wanted” list.

Reportedly Sweden to deport 20,000 Iraqis in next two months?

I’m thinking someone added an extra zero to this number or something!   If Sweden has the nerve to do something like that I will be amazed.

The Iraqis say they are used to living in Sweden and couldn’t assimilate back to Iraq?   I think they have just become accustomed getting Swedish stuff*—you know welfare.  Gosh, it’s the same the world over!

From Shafaq News:

 A diplomatic source revealed on Tuesday that Sweden will deport more than 20 thousand Iraqi refugees to Iraq during the next two months while warned from the lack of a good social environment for their stay in Iraq.

The source, who asked not to be named, said in an interview with “Shafaq News”, that “Sweden intends to return more than 20 thousand Iraqi refugees in the next two months which warns from the presence of a disaster in the lack of a social environment for their stay in Iraq.”

Can’t assimilate back in Iraq!

The source explained that “the Iraqi refugees in Sweden were accustomed to live in a complete different environment than Iraqi environment which makes their integration process in the Iraqi society very difficult.”

* I am assuming these are mostly Muslim Kurds, but they could be sending Christians back too for all I know and that would be a different story because Christians are being persecuted still in Iraq.
