Canada to Step Up Deportations of Undocumented Migrants
Canada’s border agency said Wednesday that it planned to increase its deportations of undocumented migrants by 10,000 a year.
These are to include not just failed refugees and asylum-seekers but those authorities regard as national security threats.
“While Canada is a humanitarian country that has welcomed many immigrants and asylum-seekers over the years, those coming to our country are expected to abide by our laws and processes,” a border agency spokesperson told the state-run Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
There is a backlog of about 18,000 migrants listed for deportation, with 5,300 so-called actionable cases, meaning there are no legal appeals or other reasons for them to stay.
Opposition conservatives call the number of asylum-seekers entering Canada through unmanned U.S. border crossings a crisis. They say the government does not take the matter seriously and has no plan.

One of his first actions was to ‘virtue signal’ by welcoming thousands of Syrian refugees, but not apparently those in the most need of protection.
I have to say this goes on all the time!
The US does it too!
Don’t get me started on our potentially fraud-ridden arrangement with Malta where beginning in the Bush Administration we were scooping up illegal aliens who reached the island nation and transforming them in to refugees for your communities.
It is a long-held understanding between nations that….
….legitimate refugees must ask for asylum in the first safe country they enter—Malta or any other EU country is safe!
Shortly after President Trump announced his travel ban, you will remember that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told the world in a tweet that they would be welcome in Canada.
Well, Canada’s welcome is wearing thin and here is one more story, this time in the Wall Street Journal telling us that the public opinion tide has turned on Trudeau.
Although the article (hat tip: Cathy) is focused on the asylum seekers coming across their border with the US, I am sure that the 52,000+ Syrian refugees they admitted in less than three years had already strained Canada’s ability to provide shelter and welfare for that many needy people.
This isn’t supposed to be happening in welcoming Canada!
Aren’t we led to believe that poor and oppressed minority people feel for each other, that there couldn’t possibly be racism when neither side is white European?
“It’s further colonization,” Wirch said of refugee resettlement. “We [Indigenous people] are further being displaced from our lands, from our food, from our waters. And it’s wrong.”
“….their quality of life was significantly compromised by the presence of pests in their units.”

Two cases don’t make a trend (yet)! However this is the second case in just the last few weeks or so where ‘grateful’ Syrian refugees are suing their landlords over their accommodations in the West.
Earlier this month it was New Jerseyand this story today comes from Toronto, Canada.
They fled war-torn Syria only to be caught up in a new battle with a tiny but vicious foe.
Soon after Khaldoun Anijleh and his family moved into their first home in Canada, they started to get itchy red bumps and painful blisters on their bodies. Anijleh’s two kids, Samer, 8, and Joudi, 11, would be up all night crying and scratching.
Then one day they discovered the culprits — small, flat oval-shaped bugs on the baseboards and under the mattresses.
