Asylum Seekers run from Trump to Dump!

Asylum Seekers run from Trump to Dump!

Asylum seekers crossing into Canada from the United States face further hurdles trying to attain refugee status here.

Canada Border Services Agency say the new group fleeing from the United States (U S) are the latest among a growing number of immigrants crossing the border illegally,

Many of them cite the recent election of U.S. President Donald Trump and his policies as their reason for seeking asylum here.

These asylum seekers may end in the dump in Canada. According to Ottawa immigration lawyer, Jackie Bonisteel of Corporate Immigration Law, it may prove difficult for the newcomers to claim refugee status after arriving from the U.S. “You need to prove your credibility. You need to prove the story you are telling is in fact true”.

It was further revealed that the new migration is not all that surprising given what is happening in the U.S. – given the talk of completely dismantling the refugee program for even a temporary period of time.”

Because Canada is a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention, anyone who arrives on Canadian soil to make a refugee claim has a right to do so, and has a right to a hearing before the Immigration and Refugee Board.

These claimants must demonstrate that they have a well-founded fear of persecution because of their race, ethnicity, religion or gender.
