Canadians want asylum seekers sent back to US


Some 48 percent of Canadians said they support "increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally", in the Reuters/Ipsos survey, and almost half said those crossing into their country from the USA should be sent back.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is facing increasing pressure to address the steady flow of illegal migrants entering the country.

More refugees are crossing the border from the US into Canada to escape President Donald Trump's hostile immigration policies, but new data suggests that Canadians may be equally unwelcoming.

Canadians' view of illegal immigration mirrors that of their neighbors in the United States, where a similar Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted earlier this week showed 50 percent support for deportations.

Of those polled, 46 percent disagreed with how the prime minister was handling the border crossings.

Some 48 percent of Canadians support "increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally", according to a new poll released on Monday.

Ghana national fire service spokesman Prince Billy Anaglate said a storm caused trees to fall in the "unusual incident" on Sunday. The Kintampo waterfalls are surrounded by woodland and are a popular beauty spot for visitors in the west African country.

When asked specifically about recent border crossings from the United States, roughly 48 percent said Canada should "send these migrants back to the USA", while only 36 percent said Canada should "accept these migrants".

"There are so many people in the word who want to come in and go through the right channels", Greg Janzen, a leader of a border municipality that has dealt with hundreds of illegal crossers told Reuters. "The [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] are trying to do their best here and it would be nice to have even more manpower to try and keep these people from coming into the town of Emerson". Four per cent said it would make Canada more safe. That's what's pissing most people off.

"One of the reasons why Canada remains an open country is Canadians have confidence in our immigration system, the integrity of our borders, and the help we provide people who are seeking relief and a better life", Trudeau said on February 21 during question period.

The number of asylum seekers who have illegally cross at Canada's land borders may have something to do with the country's immigration process. The minister's office adds that if someone doesn't have a valid asylum claim then the deportation begins.

Further, in a December 2016 poll, only 19 percent saw immigration becoming a national issues, whereas now, that number has moved up to a quarter of Canadians.
