Officials now say we could see as many as 400 people a day crossing over the Roxham Road illegal border crossing. Justin Trudeau’s answer, blames the Conservatives.
We all know how this flood of illegal immigrants, queue jumpers, started, it was with the PM’s infamous tweet.
To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada
— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) January 28, 2017
That tweet sparked the current border crisis, don’t take it from me, take it from the officials working in the system who watched as things took off, all based on the PM’s tweet in January 2017.
Now questioned about the border crisis and what he will do to fix it, Trudeau responds to question after question from Conservative leader Andrew Scheer by saying it is all the fault of the Conservatives.
What will Trudeau do to stop the rising numbers? Blames the Conservatives.
What will Trudeau say to families following the rules to come to Canada as other jump the line? Blame the Conservatives.
That would appear to be Trudeau’s only answer except we know that isn’t the case. Last week it leaked out that Trudeau’s government plans to deal with this problem, and Quebec being overwhelmed with the majority of the illegal border crossers, by sending people to Ontario.
The bottom line is Justin Trudeau has no real solution other than passing blame and spreading the problem around while watching it grow.
Last year more than 20,000 people crossed illegally into Canada, more than 18,000 in Quebec alone. This year the numbers are on track to being three times higher, we could hit 60,000 illegal crossings, all people claiming asylum while really being economic migrants that don’t want to follow the rules.
It’s time for real answers and a real solution to this growing problem.
