WINNIPEG, MANITOBA  - May 27, 2018  (LSN) Processing people coming into Canada illegally is literally the least the government can do. Anything less would be total chaos.

And in fact, the government should be doing far more, including standing up for our border and stopping the illegal crossings from taking place.

As many have pointed out, a country without a border isn’t really a sovereign nation at all.

And yet, Justin Trudeau is so arrogant, clueless, and out of touch with Canadians that he thinks Canadians are “reassured” by the fact that illegal border crossers are being processed.

Take a look at his comments in the video below:

First of all, Canadians are not reassured by a huge surge of illegal border crossings. Just the opposite. After all, polls show the majority of Canadians oppose the Trudeau government’s handling (AKA mishandling) of the border, and a majority want a tougher response.

Second, Trudeau is once again doing a huge disservice to people who came to Canada the legal way. People from around the world who joined the Canadian family by following the rules showed respect for our country – even before they were citizens. To lump them in with those disrespecting our laws by crossing illegally is insulting, and actually risks reducing support for legal immigration – the very opposite of what Trudeau claims to be supporting.

And finally, Trudeau took another opportunity to try and divide Canadians, by insinuating that people who want a tougher approach to the border are ‘fear-mongering.’

While all this is happening, the government continues their refusal to actually fix the problem, and in many parts of our country our social services are being overwhelmed. None of that has an impact on Trudeau and his elitist friends, but it certainly hurts the Canadian people who Justin Trudeau is failing to serve.
