Rate of illegal migrants slowing at Quebec border: federal officials

But if Trudeau clamps down too far, he risks tarnishing a long-cultivated reputation for openness and tolerance.

Numerous new arrivals are going to French-speaking Quebec, where their presence is triggering a reaction from anti-migrant groups. These are numbers large enough that Canadian authorities are being forced to set up refugee camps.

About 85 per cent of those who are crossing into Canada are Haitians who had been living in the United States, some of whom began to head to Canada because the Trump administration is considering ending a program that gave Haitians temporary protected status after their homeland's 2010 quake.

Ainslie MacLellan has been following this story.

A spokesman for the Canadian Minister of Public Safety and Emergency commented on the cases saying: "We can confirm that, following an investigation, two people have been charged by the Quebec Direction des Poursuites Criminelles et Pénales with possession and importation of child pornography".

"We have the notion here people are being told, 'Go to Canada, it's welcoming". And they've set up sort of cots on the concourse, in the hallway.

"It's good for our economy, and helping people seeking asylum is also the right thing to do". So some people in this country who choose to protest this lack of diligence and consideration are labelled a minority and racists, and are attacked by counter-protesters.

The RCMP intercepts the person and turns them over to the Canada Border Services Agency, which begins the admissibility process.


The number of asylum-seekers fleeing into Canada is surging this summer. This week, though, there's some indication that that has dropped somewhat.

At the same time, Canada said this week it will be granting border-crossing asylum seekers swifter access to healthcare.

Three people from Haiti make their way to the Roxham Road crossing in a taxi.

MACLELLAN: That's right. People mostly are coming up to this rural road called Roxham Road that - one of these many roads that runs right up to the border. Asylum seekers who first landed in the USA must be sent back there if they attempt to enter Canada through an official point of entry - except these asylum-seekers are crossing into Canada illegally, meaning the Safe Third Country Agreement does not apply. Faced with a rash of border crossings from the USA and growing criticism of his quixotic approach to border control, Trudeau's decision marks a major turning-point from his campaign. "The question is, which group is next, and how are we going to deal with it, and what is the impact on Canadians?"

GREENE: Oh, that's interesting.

"In the light of the events held by hundreds of white supremacists in Charlottesville (Va.) and the anti-immigration policies of the Trump administration, I ask that you reconsider your characterization of the U.S.as a safe country for asylum-seekers", MP Jenny Kwan (Vancouver-Mount Pleasant) wrote this week. Under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, he or she can not be charged with a criminal offence for illegally entering Canada.

Eventually, the newcomers will be transferred to Montreal or a government facility in Ontario province where officials will help them find more suitable accommodations while their claims are considered.
