There is an email circulating Canada offering recipients a “Wake-up Call” regarding illegal immigrants.
It’s full of nonsense about how harshly other countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, North Korea treat illegal immigrants, then the email goes on to complain that “IF YOU CROSS THE CANADIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET A JOB, A DRIVER’S LICENSE, SOCIAL INSURANCE CARD, WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, CREDIT CARDS, SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE, FREE EDUCATION, FREE HEALTH CARE, A LOBBYIST IN OTTAWA, MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE, THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY’S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH RESPECT AND, IN MANY INSTANCES, YOU CAN VOTE.
…..and after 10 years of residency you get OAS (Old Age Security) Pension and then you can leave and go back where you came from and collect it for life!!!!” (end of email rant)
Well, sorry dear readers, all that large cap type – as it appears in the email and should be a dead giveaway to everyone that it’s bullshit – is indeed crap. Nonsense. Bilgewater.
The email is just more idiotic Trumpism’s full of racist crap and no truth whatsoever.
Here’s what actually happens to illegal immigrants in Canada. Not immigrants, but illegal immigrants which the email was all about.
According to the Canada Border Services Agency, anyone found to be living in Canada illegally will first be issued a removal order and then deported from the country. If an individual appeals a removal order, the deportation cannot take place until the appeal has been decided.
The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, established in 2003 outlines the ruling, laws, and procedures associated for immigrants within Canada. It provides officers of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) with the authority to detain permanent residents and foreign nationals if any of the individuals have violated the rulings of the Act.
Roughly 12,600 individuals who were living in Canada including 1,900 criminals who violated this Act and either posed a high risk to Canada or were illegal immigrants were deported in the year of 2006-07.
Whoever made up the wake-up call email doesn’t know Canada. That’s for sure.
So wake-up Canada. That rascist shit doesn’t belong here.
