Windsor can expect to see an increasing number of asylum seekers crossing the Detroit River by boat or stashed away in the back of transport trucks as they flee the United States, predicts a local immigration lawyer. And yes, I would allow refugees into my home, out from the cold.
Quebec reported six times more refugee claims in February than in the same month a year ago, with a total of 635 people crossing from the U.S. That's led some claimants to cross illegally so they're in the country before making their claim, rather than use an official crossing and be turned back to the US before they can make a claim. Although this is a tiny number-even when compared with Ottawa's 2017 refugee target of 40,000, let alone the scope and scale of the global refugee crisis-it has provoked an outcry in the Canadian press and political establishment.
Kelly is scheduled to meet Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen during a day of talks in Ottawa.
But the way in which people are crossing this winter, on foot and away from legal check-points, has triggered alarm bells, both from refugee advocates concerned about their safety in the frigid Canadian winter and from government critics who say Canada's border security is being compromised.
"The refugee convention was inspired by the realities around the world and the fact that refugees are the one exception that we make when it comes to crossing borders in an illegal manner", Aiken said.
In recent months, the number of illegal border crossings by asylum seekers from the USA into communities like Emerson, Manitoba, and Hemmingford, Quebec, have sharply increased. This is why growing numbers of migrants are being forced to enter Canada "illegally"-that is, passing through snow-covered fields and ditches instead of showing up at an official border crossing". The surge of asylum seekers has grown since now-President Trump issued his ban temporarily barring travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.
A key reason Trudeau and his Liberals are so emphatic about upholding the Safe Third Country Agreement is that they are keen to avoid causing the Trump administration, with which they are determined to forge a close working relationship, any embarrassment.

More than 90 organizations in Windsor pulled together to handle the influx of Syrian refugees and that network will help deal with any increase in asylum seekers coming from the U.S., Payne said.
We also need to ensure that the system is consistent and fair for all those seeking to make Canada their new home. "We figure we can take in and manage about 40,000 a year". Canadians have no right to enter the United States, experts note, regardless of what passports or other documents they have. However, we also need to protect the integrity of our border. "It's not Homs, Syria, or Mosul in Iraq". Many have been forced to rely on charity just to feed, clothe, and house themselves. It is more likely, however, that Washington would have little enthusiasm for the development of a situation along its Canadian border that involved widespread illegal activity and could result in some degree of destabilization of its northern neighbour.
Leslie said Kelly is the first of several Trump cabinet members who will visit Canada, though he would not elaborate.
However, those who enter the country illegally and don't make an asylum claim are not covered by Section 133 of the IRPA and could be charged, Dench told Yahoo Canada News.
