Canada's refugee acceptance rate peaked in four years

Last year’s refugee acceptance rate, at 66.1 per cent, is highest since revamp of asylum processing system in 2012.

https://www.thestar.com/news/immigratio ... years.html

The 2016 refugee acceptance rate, at 66.1 per cent, is the highest since the revamp of the asylum processing system by the former Conservative government in 2012. It surpassed the rates in the previous years — 38.1 per cent in 2013, 38.8 in 2014 and 45.5 per cent in 2015.

Unlike previous years, when some decision makers actually rejected every single case they heard, the latest figures showed none of the board’s 100 or so refugee judges had a zero acceptance rate in 2016.

“The positive news is the consistency of decision making is improving. It reflects the professionalization of the decision makers from (government) appointees to civil servants,” said Osgoode Hall Law School professor Sean Rehaag, who obtained the data.

“The system has become more protective, but there is still subjectivity in the adjudication process.”

% is the symbol for percent.
Nobody uses that symbol anymore?

Any Canadian endangering their kids trying to cross in freezing weather would have the Children's Aid Society on your doorstep and have the kids taken away and you thrown in jail.

Can illegal border crossers be charged? Canadian law says no
https://ca.news.yahoo.com/can-illegal-b ... 19300.html
Some Conservative MPs are calling for charges to be laid against asylum seekers entering Canada from the U.S. at places other than official border crossings. But under existing Canadian law, that may not be possible even if the Liberal government or the RCMP decided to shift their approach.

“International and Canadian law protect the right of refugees to flee to safety, including if necessary by entering a country in violation of immigration laws,” Janet Dench, spokeswoman for the Canadian Council for Refugees, told Yahoo Canada News. “This is based on the fundamental right, as expressed in article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to seek asylum from persecution in other countries.”

Asylum seekers entering Canada from the United States should be charged, Conservative immigration critic Michelle Rempel posted on Facebook on Friday.

“As many leaders across the political spectrum have noted, the U.S. is one of the world’s most vibrant democracies,” Rempel posted. “If the Liberals believe this has changed, and have such legitimate concern with that as to interpret Article 31 in that light, they need to let Canadians know why this is so.”

Rempel is not the only Conservative to call for asylum seekers who come from the United States to be charged or deported back across the border. During the recent Tory leadership debate in Edmonton, Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch said people crossing into Canada irregularly should be “detained, questioned, and sent back to the United States immediately.”

Canada minister says most asylum seekers were in the U.S. legally
https://ca.news.yahoo.com/canada-minist ... 14805.html
TORONTO (Reuters) - Most of the migrants who have crossed the Canadian border in recent months seeking asylum were in the United States legally, the country's public safety minister said on Friday.

Ralph Goodale said Canada is sharing information about the documents presented at the border by asylum seekers "because those are American documents.”

Pretty much. When they asked Clement to explain what the law entails, he refused to answer and hung up:

I hope if these refugees get permanent resident status they will do more than just stay in their own ethnic community. They need to integrate with the rest of society.

That's the problem with letting in people who force their way into your country instead of turning them back. You can only HOPE that they'll contribute to your nation and integrate and HOPE that they won't be criminals or be violent. Unfortunately for much of Europe, many of those refugees and other people they've let in are already becoming violent, criminal and causing harm to the very people who so stupidly and naively allowed them in because they thought they were doing the 'right and just' thing when all they were doing was destroying their own countries.
