Canada, Stop Wasting Money on Phony Refugees

Thanks to the idiotic immigration policies created by Pierre Trudeau, affirmed by Brian Mulroney and Jean Chretien, and followed by Stephen Harper, Canada has become a favourite target of crooks who present themselves as “persecuted” refugees. Our country is a number one in the list of gullible countries, which would take in every shyster with even the most outrageous claims.

The crucial reason for that reputation is not difficult to guess – the generous benefits provided to everybody who puts his or her foot on Canadian soil are more than enough to spur those people into action. Because of the 1985 Charter decision of the Supreme Court, we now must treat every invader at the same level as the lawful Canadian residents.

As a result, those questionable claimants are treated better and get more benefits than the ordinary Canadians, who are forced to foot the bill with their taxes. The refugees receive free dental care, prescription drugs, eyeglasses and other goodies. If we need those things, the rest of us must pay thousands of dollars and the only consideration we get from the state is a tiny tax deduction.

Everybody can take advantage of that generosity – from Tamils who were able to pay up to $50,000 to smugglers to get them into Canada to thousands of Hungarian gypsies, who come here with phony histories of persecution.

Well, finally the government found the courage to take action. It proposed to cut those extravagant expenses, leaving only the most essential health care. It looks like everybody should support those measures, especially in times when the occupy movement kooks constantly whine about the lack of jobs and high tuition fees.

But those people are not known for their rational thinking. That became clear when their political representatives in the NDP and the Liberal Party opposed the limiting of the health care expenses for refugees.

There is nothing surprising in that – during the previous Parliament Olivia Chow introduced a private bill to eliminate the “discrimination” of new immigrants based on health condition that could be a burden on the country.

Bob Rae, the leader of the liberals, is a very rich man. I am sure that if he teams up with Olivia, they can pool enough money into a fund, which will cover all the free dental care for all phony refugees.

Yes, I am dreaming. I know that the socialists are very generous distributing other people’s money while they jealously guard every penny of their own money (which in most cases is stolen from the taxpayers anyway).

If you are not familiar with the proposed changes that would introduce some sanity in the refugee system, here you can get more details.

If you agree with the idea that you can spend your own money in a better way, than giving it away to international fraudsters with the help of Bob and Olivia, you may let the government (and Minister Jason Kenney in particular) know that you agree with the changes. Here is a link to a petition you can sign:

It is hard to believe that somebody would attack a proposal that respects the Canadian taxpayers, but that’s the reality in our country, where the lefties are a dominant force…

    Good post, Amdiwrath. perhaps the most troubling aspect of all if this is the latest polls. The Federal NDP are now on par with the Tories. The very idea of these cultural Marxists forming the next federal government will be nothing short of a living nightmare. These loony Toons will let almost anybody in who wants to come here.

    However, Jason Kenney is at least willing to address this issue, particularly the spike in “refugee” claims from Europe, the bulk of them by Hungarians gypsies. Last year the number of claims from Hungary alone nearly doubled to 4,409 — though thankfully most were withdrawn, abandoned or rejected. Since Kenney has been in government, over one million immigrants have become Canadian citizens. However, not all immigrants are equal. I would rather live in Richmond Hill (a large Chinese community in Toronto) than Jane & Finch, where sounds of gang warfare and gunfire can be heard almost every night in Canada’s most “colourful” Jamaican ghetto.

    Going back to the refugee question, the REAL problem here is, in 2009, 46% of refugee claimants to Canada came from OECD member nations — i.e., from high and middle-income countries. Now I defy any NDP MP to explain to me how that isn’t complete madness. And yet, the former leader of the Federal Liberal Party, Michael Ignatieff, decided before his ungracious fall from opposition, why he couldn’t support a “safe country” option that would simply remove one avenue of appeal for refugee claimants from the planet’s highest-achieving nations. But nobody with any common sense ever credited the Libs with common sense when it comes to immigration and refugee policies anyway.

    To give you one example, my family and I were initially turned down for immigration to Canada from the UK in 1993. Yet my wife and I were within the right age group (mid-30s), had one infant son, professional degrees, and over £30,000 in savings (not including the sale of our house) to bring with us. Their reason? After going through two full medical check-ups (at private hospitals – for some reason the Canadian High Commission in London did not trust national Health Service Doctors!). After jumping through numerous hoops, the reason they turned us down was because they thought that our two-year-old son “might” have a slight squint in his right eye, which may later require corrective surgery.

    That was it.

    They eventually changed their minds and decided to let us in when we promised to bring more money with us. In spite of the fact that we would be living with relatives and will not need any government financial assistance, they made it tough for us to emigrate. But then again, we weren’t coming here from the Third World. And no, my son did not have a squint in his eye!

    Compare this to the comparative ease that many immigrants from Africa and India seem to have when applying to move here. having spoken to many of them over the years, they did not have to go through the rigorous background checks and medical examinations that my wife and I were subjected to. Plus I see others who were clearly not born here, who suffer with polio, rickets, eye cataracts and various other physical conditions that require long-term and expensive treatments. And the Left wants Canada to take in people who are HIV positive, as it would be “discriminatory” not to? Where does the madness end?

    With the mass influx of mainly Third World immigrants,Typhoid, tuberculosis, dengue, chikungunya, strongyloidiasis, bilharzia and other lethal illnesses arrive (particularly) in Toronto every year. Many of Canada’s yearly influx of 250,000 immigrants come from countries that have seen a resurgence in some of these contagions, and where there are no inoculation programs.

    What cost in the long term to treat such a huge influx of newcomers be? And will this eventually cripple our health care system? Let’s hope that Canada’s taxpayers don’t go down with serious diseases and viruses, thanks to “new Canadians” that are becoming increasingly harder to treat.

    It enough to make you sick (literally).

      Thank you for sharing your personal story. People like you and your family are not whining type, and therefore not heard often enough. However, personal stories are powerful and I think it’s worthwhile to send your story to Mr. Kenny. (I believe he actually reads the letters.) I him for taking a small but principled common sense step in the right direction.

      The petition signed and sent.

    Here’s US immigration policy that can get US citizens killed: from Ann Coulter’s newsletter: “Nearly three times as many Americans support reducing immigration as want it to stay the same, according to Gallup polls. A grand total of 5 percent of the population want to increase legal immigration — 10 times less than want to decrease it. I myself would like to deport the people responsible for our current immigration policies.

    Our official policy is to turn away scientists in order to make room for illiterate Pakistani peasants who will drop out of high school to man coffee carts until deciding to plot a terrorist attack against the United States. That’s this week’s immigration poster boy, Najibullah Zazi.

    Zazi’s own step-uncle said of him: “He was a dumb kid, believe me.” Our immigration officials said, WELCOME, ZAZI!… Oops, sorry Swedish scientists and nuclear engineers — no room for you.

    In February, Zazi pleaded guilty in a plot to bomb the New York City subway.”
