Default Canada has detained more Mexicans in 2 months than in all of 2016

Quote:
The Canada Border Services Agency detained more Mexican migrants in the first two months of 2017 than it did in all of 2016, new statistics show.

According to the CBSA, 444 Mexicans had been detained in Canada as of March 9.

In 2016, 410 Mexicans were held by Canadian border officials.

The spike comes immediately after Canada's federal government lifted its visa requirement for Mexican citizens in December. In January alone, 70 Mexicans made refugee claims upon arriving in Canada.

And there's this...

Almost half of Canadians want illegal border crossers deported - Reuters poll

Quote:
Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

A significant minority, four out of 10 respondents, said the border crossers could make Canada "less safe," underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau's Liberal government.

The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months is becoming a contentious issue in Canada.

...Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as American, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9. Some 48 percent supported "increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally." (For graphics on asylum process, immigration poll see tmsnrt.rs/2nyY8CJ)

When asked specifically about the recent border crossings, the same number - 48 percent - said Canada should "send these migrants back to the U.S." Another 36 percent said Canada should "accept these migrants".

The unspoken worry is that if Mexican's are slipping across then American's probably are too.

The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months has become a contentious issue in Canada.

There has been broad bipartisan support for high levels of legal immigration for decades in Canada. But Trudeau has come under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants. He is questioned about it every time he appears in parliament, from opponents on the left, who want more asylum-seekers to be allowed in, and critics on the right, who say the migrants pose a potential security risk.

Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as their American neighbors, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9. Some 48 percent said they supported “increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally.”

When asked specifically about the recent border crossings, the same number - 48 percent - said Canada should “send these migrants back to the U.S.” Another 36 percent said Canada should “accept these migrants”.

Montréal is the latest Canadian city to announce their status as a sanctuary, which begs the question whether or not Calgary should follow suit.

Although criticised for being largely symbolic and carrying no legal standing, sanctuary cities make is so municipal police forces are discouraged, but not banned, from helping federal officers with immigration status checks. When a refugee or an illegal immigrant crosses into a sanctuary city they will have access to services without the fear of deportation.

“Diversity is our strength, and part of our DNA,” said Denis Coderre, mayor of Montreal, to the Montreal Gazette when asked about Montreal’s decision to become a sanctuary city. As a country that identifies as humanitarian and as a mosaic society, it’s important that we offer as many sanctuary cities as we can.

Following the chaos fuelled by the Trump administration down south, sanctuary cities are more important than ever. Shortly after 9/11, the Canada–United States Safe Third Country Agreement was put into effect. This agreement states that people seeking refugee status must make their claim in the first country they arrive in, either Canada or the U.S. This means that all the refugees from elsewhere in the world, whom are now fleeing from President Donald Trump, are technically unable to claim refugee status in Canada as they have already done so on U.S soil. Being welcomed into a sanctuary city is now the only way they can come to Canada.

I'm half surprised that Edmonton's idiot council hasn't done this yet.

There has to be a place for all of those Progressives and Liberal Democrats to go who said they would leave the US if Trump won.

You didn't expect them to go to Mexico did you?

Can you imagine them trying to convince one of the drug barons or kleptocrats down there that they have to allow gender fluid restrooms and safe spaces?

They would never go to Mexico. Mexico has so many unlabelled safety hazards. You climb crumbling pyramids with just a rope to hang on to, resort steps with no handrails to hang on to, etc. All the snowflakes would die.

Over a recent one-month stretch, three people intercepted by RCMP while crossing into Canada on foot near Emerson, Man., were detained because they were found to be a danger to the public, Canada Border Services Agency officials say.

Between March 20 and April 16, 135 asylum seekers were found illegally crossing the border near the small Manitoba town.

Details released Wednesday show the number of asylum seekers crossing the border into the province is climbing.

In March, 170 people were intercepted crossing into Manitoba — up from 19 in January and 142 in February, according Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

The union representing border patrol officers raised concerns about public safety last week, saying nearly half of the asylum seekers entering near Emerson in the last few weeks have some criminality in their backgrounds.

Data provided by the Canada Border Services Agency doesn't include numbers about asylum seekers with criminal backgrounds who were not detained. The CBSA does not keep statistics on asylum seekers with records who have not been detained.

Jean-Pierre Fortin, national president of the Customs and Immigration Union, said border officers have been under increased scrutiny in recent months and will only detain an asylum seeker "as a last resort."

One of the recent detainees allegedly assaulted a female officer on April 8.

Ahmed Aden Ali, who came to Canada via Minneapolis, was charged with two counts of uttering threats, mischief over $5,000 and assaulting a police officer.

People can only be detained at the border for three reasons: They're a danger to the public, they're unlikely to appear for a removal hearing or their identity can't be determined.

Border services officials said they didn't know whether the three people who were recently detained are still in custody. They may have been released by the Immigration Refugee Board on a promise to appear before the board for a removal hearing at a later date.

Someone can be deemed "criminally inadmissible" to apply for refugee status in Canada but may still be released into the country on a promise to appear at a future removal hearing.
