To All Members of Parliament:

No picture has so incensed Canadians or demonstrated the utter impotence, or worse,  of our gatekeepers than pictures of Mounties acting as glorified bellhops, carrying posh looking suitcases for illegals crossing over the New York State-Quebec border, having avoided the normal check point. Instead of pushing these illegals back or blocking their way, the RCMP were assisting them to enter Canada.  Some thought this was a little like finding out that police had driven the getaway car after a bank holdup.

The present government has lost control of our border with the U.S. In 2017, 18,149 people crossed illegally into Canada most from New York State to Quebec at Roxham Road and a much smaller number across the Manitoba border from North Dakota. As soon as these illegals are accepted as “refugee” claimants, they qualify for welfare, housing, medical and legal aid and schooling. Homeless shelters in Montreal and Toronto are full.

The searing injustice is, despite their first act is Canada is to disrespect our laws by the illegal entry, they immediately impose severe financial burdens on Canadian taxpayers. Wher else can you break into someone’s home and be guaranteed to be fed and sheltered and medicated?

The Safe Third Country Agreement was a reasonable attempt to handle some of the unreasonable burdens imposed on Canada by the disastrous 1985 Singh Decision which granted people showing up  and claiming “refugee” status all the rights of Canadians, except the right to vote. All they needed to do was touch Canadian soil and say were the magic words “I’m a refugee” and they were guaranteed a hearing and an appeal and welfare, legal aid, government housing, medicare and dental care better than many Canadian-born welfare recipients receive! The Safe Third Country Agreement between Canada and the U.S. required a person wishing to make a refugee claim in the first country (Canada or the U.S.) he entered. He could not shop around. A person from the U.S. presenting at a “port of entry” cannot make a refugee claim and, if he wished to do so, would be turned back.

The spirit of the agreement is clear. Conservative immigration critic Michelle Rempel makes a perfectly reasonable point — declare the entire border a “port of entry.” Second best would be to build a fence or wall along the area in Quebec where the illegals are crossing and back it up with troops or police to push intruders back. Hungary has effectively secured its southern border that way.

The duty of an army is to secure its country’s borders. Rather than meddling in a civil war in Mali, our army should be protecting the border.

Finally, to free ourselves from the ivory tower restrictions of the Singh Decision, Parliament should use the “notwithstanding” clause and stipulate that ALL would-be immigrants or refugees should apply and be vetted abroad.

As long as the Canadian government fails to take border security seriously, why should foreign opportunists? Large numbers of Nigerians are flying to the U.S. on tourist visas and making their way to the Canadian  border to sneak avoid the border crossing station, sneak across the border and claim “refugee” status. It little matters that Nigeria is a democratic country. The current wait time for the backlog is 30 months. That’s 30 months living off the Canadian taxpayer. Not a bad deal!

The time to act is now!

Sincerely yours,

Paul Fromm
