Trudeau’s self-manufactured crisis.

Via Toronto Sun:

The problem of illegal immigration into Canada is getting worse.

You wouldn’t know it from watching the evening news or reading a national newspaper, but a steady stream of illegal migrants continues to sneak across unpatrolled sections of our southern border. Liberal journalists may feel uncomfortable telling the story, but the numbers don’t lie.

Over Easter weekend, the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) confirmed that approximately 600 asylum seekers crossed illegally into Canada at one single location in Lacolle, Quebec.

During the first two months of 2018, Canada has experienced an overwhelming influx of illegal migration. A total of 7,860 asylum applications were received by the federal government during January and February alone — typically the coldest two months of the year.

We don’t yet know the numbers for March, but given what we saw over the Easter weekend, we can expect that illegal crossings have continued to soar.

This puts us on pace to match or even beat last year’s number of illegal entries. In 2017, Canada’s worst year on record for illegal crossings, there were 50,405 asylum claims made.

By contrast, prior to Trudeau being elected, the four-year average of illegal crossings was 15,960. The number has more than tripled under Trudeau.[…]

To deal with this self-made crisis, the Trudeau government pledged an additional $173 million in the federal budget to process illegal crossings. They also quietly made changes to skip important legal steps in the refugee determination process — allowing more leniency and accepting more refugees.

Worse, the spin doctors in the Trudeau government shrug off this crisis and come up with euphemisms to downplay the reality on the ground.

They call it “irregular entry” rather than stating the fact that these migrants are crossing our border illegally, often coordinated by human smuggling rings. They call these illegal migrants “refugees” — even though no refugee status has been granted through Canada’s courts.
