19 asylum seekers brave winter storm to reach Canada

The number of asylum seekers entering Canada from the United States has continued to rise in recent weeks.

This has strained our resources, put migrants traveling in risky conditions at risk and left Canadians concerned about our porous border. And yes, I would allow refugees into my home, out from the cold.

In February, 646 United States refugees walked into Quebec, a 600 percent jump from February of 2016. At an official border crossing they would be turned away.

"We recognize the importance of consistent, predictable and respectful interactions at the border for travelers in both directions, and we will continue to look for new ways to improve the flow of legitimate trade and travel", said Kelly and Goodale in a joint statement released by Canada's Office of the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and the Department of Homeland Security. Surely, we can not consider stationing thousands of police or military along the border and shooting at people as they try to cross.

"The refugee convention was inspired by the realities around the world and the fact that refugees are the one exception that we make when it comes to crossing borders in an illegal manner", Aiken said.

He said it took one hour to find the people, who crossed before they were located just north of the town of Emerson. Police last issued an update Monday that said 183 people had illegally crossed the border this year, with 40 people crossing between February 28 and March 3. These regions have been the target of brutal US-led wars of aggression and/or subjected to bloody US-backed dictatorships-crimes in which Canadian imperialism has been complicit.

Migrants were coming across the border before Trump came to power. As was made clear in a joint statement Trudeau and Trump issued last month, the basis of a reinvigorated Canada-US alliance is to be Canada's further integration into US-led military violence overseas and the creation of a US-led North American trade war bloc, either through the refurbishing of NAFTA or a new bilateral trade deal. However, Section 133 of the Immigrant and Refugee Protection Act makes an exception for asylum seekers.

"We are proud to be part of team Canada but we need the federal government to step up and do its job".

U-S Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly says most of the migrants who recently made the hard journey across the border into Canada were in the United States legally. "We figure we can take in and manage about 40,000 a year".

Many of those making the journey are originally from African nations such as Somalia and Ghana and fear deportation from the United States under toughened immigration laws.

"We need a partnership. It's not Homs, Syria, or Mosul in Iraq". The refugees and migrant agencies blame the exodus on moves by U.S. President Donald Trump to clamp down on immigration. Many have been forced to rely on charity just to feed, clothe, and house themselves.

According to London's Daily Mail, most of those slipping across America's northern border this winter are carrying passports from Syria, Somalia, Burundi, Eritrea, Ghana and Sudan, Turkey, Columbia or Mexico.

Leslie said Kelly is the first of several Trump cabinet members who will visit Canada, though he would not elaborate.

Since the start of 2017, there's been a marked increase in the number of people arriving in Canada from the U.S.to seek asylum. But the Conservatives' opposition is a crude appeal to anti-Muslim sentiment, including ludicrous claims that the Liberal-backed motion is an attack on free speech and that the government is privileging Islam over other faiths.

The Canadian government has pursued an open-armed policy toward asylum seekers.
