The federal Liberals finally acknowledge they need to be tougher in dealing with our border mess.
Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale has instructed the Canada Border Services Agency to speed up the removal of failed refugee claimants.
That agency now has a new target to remove 10,000 failed refugee claimants by March and 10,000 annually until backlogs are processed – as much as a 35% over current deportation levels.
Our newly tough-on-refugees Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who’s been at odds with ordinary Canadians over his mishandling of the “irregular migrant” crisis, now in an election year suddenly believes border integrity matters.
“Justin Trudeau says the government has been looking at ways of speeding up these cases to ensure Canada’s immigration system remains an integrated system that functions properly,” Canadian Press breathlessly reported.
We’d call for a laugh track to be played at this point if the joke wasn’t more sad than funny.
