Question of the Day: Should foreign criminals convicted in Canada be deported?

Emily PrattRebel Correspondent

The proposed "Removal of Serious Foreign Criminals" Act would strip immigrants who are deemed a danger to the public of protection as refugees. As well, foreign criminals would be deported after they were convicted of a crime by Canadian courts.

We asked people what they thought of this idea.

If they don’t get taken out after blowing up the Skydome, then maybe the death penalty for these sorts of attacks, as with the Boston bomber case would be in order. Oh wait, we give murderous terrorists free lunch in Canada I forgot.

Yes, if convicted, send them back to their country of origin, and make sure they never return to Canada. We need to take a page from Israel, and step up our security, and screening, and this includes profiling, because it works!

So … a terrorist from Pakistan or Palestine blows up the Sky Dome, kills thousands, and we deport him/her back to Pakistan/Palestine, where s/he is given an award, a new assignment, released with a new ID and passpoert, and put on a plane back to Canada to blow up Pearson?

Um … no.

If they are foreigners, and not full credited Canadians‘ deport them!

Couldn’t agree more, Rick Plesnik, couldn’t agree more.

Yes, give them an expedited trial and ditch them in their country of origin, still in shackles with paperwork outlining their crimes. What ever happens to them is on them, if they wanted a better life they should have acted like they wanted it.

You mean like how the US deported al-Baghdadi?

Prison first followed by forced emigration/deportation

Hang ’em… save the flight.

Nice move Mr. Prime Minister. Funny how most of the “locals” can’t make a decision or give wet noodle responses.
The immigrants that were questioned were decisive.

I like what the last interviewee said. Nothing more has to be said. ABSOLUTELY!! It’s a no-brainer.

Do I agree with stripping non native born Canadians of citizenship YES THEY TOOK AN OATH TO QUEEN AND COUNTRY. When they brock that oath they forfeited their Canadian citizenship. Why should we Canadian’s who are law abiding tax paying. Have to pay upwards of $150,000.00 a year to keep them here. Get rid of them they have dual citizenship send them back to their country and let that countries citizens pay for them. If they cry what about my mother, father, sister, brothers, wife, children, aunts, uncles….well that’s to bad you should have thought about it before. But they have choice they can go with you or stay behind and work for a living. SO SAY BYE BYE.

Absolutely. Let’s start with the wannabe ISIS thugs. Their crime has already cost Canadians’ personally in some manner as well as tax dollars to fund the courts and most likely their legal aid lawyers. Why we want to add to those substantial costs by keeping them here to be coddled in the prison system, where like Khadr, they can petition to have their conviction overturned. Quite frankly, if they cannot respect the laws of this country and abide by same, they have no business being here. What? They came from a bad country. Should have thought of that before the crime was committed. Our obligation was filled when you were allowed in here in the first place. It ended when you decided to violate that trust. Where you end up is not our problem.
