Reuters: Almost half of Canadians want illegal border crossers deported - Reuters poll

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

A significant minority, four out of 10 respondents, said the border crossers could make Canada "less safe," underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau's Liberal government.

The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months has become a contentious issue in Canada.

WNU Editor: I am a Canadian citizen AND an immigrant to Canada. My family and I went through a lot of trouble becoming legal immigrants to this country .... we paid out dues, took the necessary time to become citizens, and we received no assistance from the government during the process. We followed the law in every-way .... and it makes my blood boil that there are some people who believe they can circumvent all of this by jumping the line in the hope that Canada's charitable nature will give them a pass. I live in the French province of Quebec .... and even though the numbers crossing the border are (still) minuscule .... the anti-immigrant sentiments in this province among the French population are off the scale right now. As I tell my Liberal friends who are in power in Ottawa .... their power-base and the reason why they are in power is because of Quebec, and they are now messing around with those who voted them into power.

A) "The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online in English and French throughout Canada. It included responses from 1,001 people 18 years or older. Individual responses were weighted according to the latest population estimates, so that the results reflect the entire population."

Online polls are garbage.

B). They are Refugee's, not Immigrants. Sonce 1982, 41% of refugee claimant's in Canada have "gone home". 59% "can't".

Of those who have remained in Canada since 1982 as Refugee's, only 68% have applied for Landed Immigrant Status. 32% still hope that some time in the future, they will be able to go home.

Of those who applied for Landed Immigrant Status, only 74% were granted Status. It's actually harder to go from Refugee to Immigrant, than Foreign Citizen to Immigrant.

Of those granted Immigrant Status, only 51% applied for Citizenship. 49% still hope that someday, they can go home.

Jay. We both know that to become a Canadian citizen is a hard process .... where time, patience, and a support base while one is going through the process is a must. And the ideal dream is to have status in Canada as well as the country that they have left. Within Canada itself I find people's altitudes towards immigrants/refugees very different, with Quebec being the one that is least hospitable. Toronto and Vancouver .... very hospitable (but high and affordable house prices may start to change that). But perception is reality, and the perception is that Canada is being flooded with migrants/refugees/etc. .... starting with the border .... while in reality we are talking about numbers that are incredibly low. But .... politics is now in play, and I know in the province of Quebec french-Quebecois nationalist resentment and the xenophobia that it spreads is growing.
