Ah, there’s your problem

NDP immigration critic Jinny Sims said the government’s bill erodes the foundation of Canada’s immigration and refugee system, and breaks domestic and international laws.

The B.C. MP takes issue with a number of components in the bill, including the terms surrounding mandatory detentions.

“I think it is one of the key pillars in this legislation that is so draconian,” she said. “This is really about punishing the most vulnerable citizens when they arrive here, putting their lives at risk and when they get here we’re going to throw them in prison.” woodstock sentinel review

You cannot help but marvel at an immigration critic who thinks refugees and asylum seekers (and boat people for that matter) are Canadian citizens the instant they set foot on Canadian soil.

Er, no Jinny, they are not.
