The Conservatives want the Trudeau Government to stop the flow of people crossing the border from the U-S and seeking refugee status out west. At least a couple of dozen refugees have been found walking through the snow trying to flee the U-S into Manitoba…and those are just the ones who have been caught.
Tory M-P’s Michelle Rempel and Tony Clement tweeted yesterday the crossings are unsafe and place a burden on local law enforcement.
Some critics say the easiest way to halt the illegal border crossings is to suspend the Safe Third Country Agreement. That would allow people to request refugee status at official border crossings. But the government has now plans to do that.
