Here's how Canadian taxpayers and private agencies help asylum seekers
From food and a blanket at the border to social assistance, legal help and job training

I am actually happy that the Mexicans are coming over to Canada now. Most of them are polite hard working individuals who keep their mouth shut, unless they have something nice to say. It's a welcomed change. I can find some good workers now to do renovations, the illegal asian company I was using did a terrible job last time with some final touches.

Let's not forget that Mexicans came about from when the Spanish invaded North America and took over the Natives. They're technically half native & own more of this land than anyone else.

As if it wasn't bad enough before. Now we have evidence that it's a coordinated strategy to flood Canada with illegal immigrants from ISIS's older brother. I don't know why people want to welcome border jumpers that are okay with literally crucifying people as punishment for defying their religion.
What are you even talking about? I live in Toronto right beside a mosque by moderately poor muslim people, and honestly they just want to live and give their children a good education.
Never once have I seen any Toronto muslims/muslim immigrants in Toronto crucifying anybody.

While I am not a Tredeau fan, I don't think he is really to blame for this loop hole. The Safe Third Country Act which the pedestrian crossers are exploiting dates back to 2002.
Did I post something that interests you? Feel free to PM further questions.

No but he made the headlines when he said iirc Canada would still welcome refugees and be open to the world if the USA did close itself off.

Canada refugee claims spike in first two months of 2017
http://ca.reuters.com/article/domesticN ... S04V-OCADN
By Anna Mehler Paperny

TORONTO (Reuters) - A spike in refugee claims for the first two months of 2017 put Canada on track for the highest number since at least 2011. A fifth of those claimants were caught crossing the border illegally.

Growing numbers of asylum-seekers are coming to Canada in the wake of the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has pledged to crack down on refugees and undocumented immigrants.

Canada's federal government has taken heat from opponents on both the left and right for its wait-and-see approach to the influx. A Reuters/Ipsos poll found almost half of Canadians want people who entered the country illegally to be deported.

Statistics released by the government on Monday evening show 5,520 people made refugee claims in Canada in January and February.

If the pace of asylum-seekers keeps up, it will mean upwards of 33,000 refugee claims filed in Canada this year - almost 40 percent higher than 2016.

Despite the images of individuals hauling babies and belongings across the snowy border, only 20 percent of those who have filed refugee claims in Canada so far this year - 1,134 - were intercepted by Royal Canadian Mounted Police as they crossed the border illegally.

Of those, the majority - 677 - were caught crossing into Quebec, with the rest in British Columbia and Manitoba (and five in the prairie province of Saskatchewan).

I said this before, but the refugees crisis is a numbers game in the end. We have a population of 35 million people, our neighbor down south has a population of 350 million people. We can absorb a couple thousand refugees per year safely--i'd say around 10,000-50,000 people, it won't really make a dent and in fact will probably be good for the country over all. However, things become a problem...a serious problem if hundreds of thousands of people come into our country. It will turn into a disaster for our social programs, and our diversity that we pride will turn to sht as we become the new state of nigeria/somalia/syria etc.

This would have happened under Harper as well. Not sure why everyone needs to blast the current PM acting like he was waiting at the border with a "Welcome" banner. You conservatives always want to blame either a liberal PM or a minority to feel better.

You do realize that this country had laws and treaties that it must abide by? A Pm can't unilaterally set border or immigration policy to suit the whims of the plebeian mob. As I explained elsewhere, turning back people directly would require changing several conventions and laws. Do we really want to overreact to an issue that by it's very nature will be limited in time? Even the article cited above stated that 80% of claimants entered legally.

You planning on justifying that answer? Are you suggesting that Harper would have openly welcomed more asylum seekers after Trumps election or thathe would have removed the visa requirement on mexico? doubt it.
