Canadians want asylum seekers sent back to US

Almost half of Canadians want illegal migrants to be sent back to US
When President Donald Trump first announced his temporary travel ban, which halted entry into the USA from seven Muslim-majority countries and temporarily froze the refugee resettlement program, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pushed back, taking to Twitter to announce that refugees turned away by the US are welcome in Canada.
Illegal migrants interviewed by Reuters in Canada said they had been living legally in the United States and had applied for asylum there.
Almost half of Canadians want more illegal immigrants deported from their country, in part because of safety concerns, a March survey found.
Canadian authorities have rebuffed any suggestion that the country is going easy on illegal border crossers.
Forty-six percent of Canadians disagreed with the prime minister's policy on migrants crossing from the United States, according to the Reuters/Ipsos poll, while 37 percent agree with it, and 17 percent said they did not know. But they had fled to Canada for fear of being caught up in Trump's immigration crackdown.
Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) told CBC News 2,176 people made asylum claims in the first two months of 2017 - a number which includes those who illegally crossed and were later allowed to make a claim, as well as those who legally made claims at crossings.
According to a separate Ipsos poll, 23 percent of Canadians listed immigration as among the top national issues - up from 17 percent in December.
The PMO is not commenting on the poll, however, a spokesperson for the Public Safety Minister says slipping across the border is not a "free ticket" into Canada.
Britain to trigger Brexit March 29
However, the European Council wants to sort out Britain's "divorce bill" from the bloc before any future relationship is agreed. Barnier has said that he expects a deal to be agreed in 2018 and ratified in 2019.
"Refugees are much more welcomed when we have gone and selected them ourselves as a country, as opposed to refugees who have chosen us", Janet Dench, the executive director of the Canadian Council for Refugees, told Reuters.
Trudeau faces no immediate threat, since the next elections are not until 2019.
Warm weather may lead to an even greater spike in illegal immigration into Canada, warned Brian Lee Crowley, head of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute public think-tank.
It seems Canadians have had enough with the hundreds of asylum seekers entering the country from the US. The minister's office adds that if someone doesn't have a valid asylum claim then the deportation begins.
Yet not all Canadians are supportive of Trudeau's immigration stance. The issue still ranks behind healthcare, taxes, unemployment, and poverty, which Canadians view as primary concerns.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll, which was conducted online in both English and French on March 8 and 9, included 1,001 people over 18 years old. "We will continue to strike a balance between a rigorous system and accepting people who need help", he said as he announced a plan to resettle 1,200 Yazidi women.
The poll has a credibility interval, a measure of accuracy, of 4 percentage points.
