You know we are constantly being told that if we stop illegal immigration we will hurt our economy horribly, that illegal immigration brings wealth and prosperity with it, how illegal immigrants do the jobs that American won’t do, pay taxes and add to the greatness and richness of America
That being the case I guess Canada should be looking forward to a new Golden Age of prosperity!
Jean-Pierre Fortin, president of the Customs and Immigration Union, said he believes there are more illegal crossings taking place than officials are aware of. One port in Quebec has experienced a particularly large number of asylum-seekers and illegal immigrants – the Saint Bernard Lecolle in the small town of Emerson, Manitoba, just outside of Montreal. Fortin said that last week alone, at least 200 immigrants entered the country illegally near the Lecolle port. He said the influx began in November 2016 – the month Donald Trump was elected president.
And apparently cold weather and snow aren’t stopping them
At least 450 people crossed illegally in January and February, despite bitter cold that usually discourages such traffic, government officials said. In all of last year, the total was 2,400
In fact we can already see signs of the jobs and prosperity beginning!
Fortin says to properly protect the border from illegal crossings — those not done at official ports of entry — his union would like to see the government reinstate 1,053 jobs cut by the previous government. He would also like to see the government change its policy so border officers can chase anyone who crosses without going through a port of entry. He says right now CBSA has to call in the RCMP. “We’re not even allowed to chase them,” Fortin said. “The RCMP doesn’t have the resources and what we’re asking the government at this point in time, we want to make sure that we should be closing that gap. We should have border guards actually patrolling these [areas].”
Well that would certainly mean jobs and prosperity for those laid off border agents. And pretty soon they’ll be benefits for all!
“Now we have (mostly) single people coming across. We will have families and we will have many people coming across when the weather improves.” Refugee claimants must wait 30 days before they can apply for a work permit and some government benefits. Until then, they are given shelter and other help by non-profit agencies.
In fact there is so much prosperity on the way coming from all over…
In B.C., there has been a 60-per-cent increase in the number of refugee claimants in the last 12 months compared to the previous one-year period. Most are Iraqi Kurds and Afghans, and there were also 18 undocumented Latin Americans from Guatemala, Honduras and Venezuela who recently crossed the Canada-U.S. border, immigration agencies said. The number of Mexican claimants is also starting to rise in B.C
…that the Canadian cabinet is meeting over it!
Federal cabinet ministers are set for an in-depth discussion this week of the practical and political pressures being placed on the Liberal government by a rising number of asylum seekers in Canada.
Doubtless the cabinet is meeting to discuss what to do with all this prosperity that has already come and is coming.
Border security, RCMP and immigration officials have been running scenarios to prepare for the possibility that a relative winter trickle of illegal immigration into Canada could turn into a spring flood.
Watch for the omens, as soon as the snow melts a new Golden Age of prosperity will flow into Canada!
I’m sure our northern neighbors are very pleased but even more pleased will be celebreaties from the south, upset over the recent election and the enforcement of immigration law in the US. All of this means when they finally keep their vows to leave America for Canada all of the folks that they fought so hard to keep in the US will be waiting for them north of the border, ready to usher in a new golden age of prosperity!
It’s a good thing all those countries these folks left didn’t realize how much prosperity they brought with them, otherwise they would have done all they could to keep them, lucky for Canada they haven’t caught on yet.
I sure hope Canada’s new found wealth doesn’t change them.
