Canada closing down immigrants coming through the refugee route
Although Canada has been increasing targets for its provincial nominee programs, there also have been talks about restricting the number of refugees. Canada is now conducting talks with the USA about the closing of the Safe Third country agreement, through which immigrants arrive at the Canadian border and then get caught in order to get immigrant status as a refugee. 40,000 people have come to Canada through the illegal immigration route, by crossing the border between US and Canada and asking for refugee status in Canada.
As per a new bill which will be introduced, anyone who has asked for a refugee claim in other countries, can’t do so in Canada. Canada only wants immigrants coming to its country through the legal way of Express Entry. And when it wants to choose refugees, it wants to choose them on its own, as in the case of Syria.
