It turns out that Canada, despite lambasting and looking down on the UNited States has been deporting “refugees” back to place like Iraq. “Between January 2014 and Sept. 6, 2017, Canada sent 249 people to 11 countries for which the government had suspended or deferred deportations because of dangers to civilians,” these are just the ones to “dangerous countries.”
Now Canada has taken in a lot of migrants, and this group of deportees only represents less than one percent, but the sheer hypocrisy comes from why they were deported…They didn’t follow immigration laws! Yet the Canadian government has the temerity to lecture the US about how it treats illegal migrants from Mexico.
The MSM will report only on what a small number this is, but that’s only because the influx of migrants didn’t really get started until THIS year. And this year, they have already doubled last year’s deportations in some areas.
All anybody really wants is for people to follow the laws! Is this so hard to understand? Is this really too much to ask? When every other country on the planet is allowed to enforce their laws and borders, why is it that so many of the liberal elite are disgusted at the idea that this is acceptable for all but the United States?
According to a report released Monday, Canada – the country that claimed they would open their arms to the world’s refugees – has been deporting those same refugees back to worn-torn countries in record numbers.
Faced with a growing illegal immigration crisis, Justin Trudeau’s government has been taking extreme measures to ensure Canada’s immigration laws are duly enforced, and that includes “removing” anyone who doesn’t follow Canada’s strict rules for migrating into the country.
“Between January 2014 and Sept. 6, 2017, Canada sent 249 people to 11 countries for which the government had suspended or deferred deportations because of dangers to civilians,” Reuters reported, after obtaining confidential government documents outlining Canada’s increased deportation plan.
That number includes 134 refugees returned to Iraq, likely fleeing ISIS, and 43 refugees returned to Afghanistan. The number of “returns” to Iraq has already doubled so far this year, as well. By this time in 2016, Canada had deported only around 20 people back to the Middle East, to a country the Canadian government deems unsafe. Already this year, the government has deported 50 Iraqi refugees.
The US, by contrast, is currently barred from deporting any Iraqi refugees, thanks to a court order issued earlier in the summer staying the deportations until an appeals process is finished.
Canadian officials claimed to Reuters that the process is “humanitarian” and that those refugees facing deportation are afforded due process rights, and that they have recourse to appeal an unfavorable decision.
But, even as its clear Canada just wants to execute their rules on immigration in a fair manner, which respects their national sovereignty and the safety of Canadian citizens, that’s a far cry from how Justin Trudeau claimed they’d operate in the days after Donald Trump announced new immigration restrictions for the United States.
