Illegal immigrants costs Canada thousands of dollars, at least 20,000 migrants have jumped the border since Donald Trump got elected president, but Trump turned out to be good for America, the country in booming.
Those migrants cost Canadian taxpayers at least $5,000 each, you do the math, at this rate there will be more illegal immigrants in Canada since 2017 than Syrian refugees.
The Canadian government doesn’t call them illegal immigrants, they are “irregular travellers”
Via Toronto Sun:
In the first three months of 2018, 5,052 asylum seekers were intercepted by the RCMP after illegally crossing the Canadian border, compared to 4,475 people who filed refugee claims through conventional channels such as airports and official border stations. In other words, for the first time there are more people illegally seeking asylum in Canada than making legal refugee claims — and that trend is set to continue throughout 2018.
In 2017, the Immigration and Refugee Board received at least 18,149 claims from what they call “irregular border crossers” — those who claimed asylum after first entering Canada illegally. This was compared to 29,276 people who applied for refugee status through legal channels. But with the rate of illegal crossings already double what it was in 2017, the “illegal” category is poised to blow past the “legal” category.
The RCMP intercepted 1,890 illegal border crossers in the first three months of 2017. In the same period in 2018, that number soared to 5,052. Over the Easter Weekend alone, more than 600 crossed into Quebec, and provincial officials are expecting more than 400 per day as the weather gets warmer. Much of this activity is in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Que., where it’s particularly easy to cross over from Champlain, New York.
