“Frightening” testimony: Asylum seekers cost Canadians at least $500M (so far)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Thursday's Citizenship and Immigration Committee hearing was frightening.

Of the 32,000 asylum seekers who have arrived in Canada so far in 2017.

At least 13,211 entered the country illegally, with the majority coming through at Quebec border crossings.

There was another startling fact revealed:

There have been nine deportations of asylum seekers.

Just nine, and those were from British Columbia.

There have been none from Quebec, which is horrifying considering there were asylum claimants discovered with child pornography trying to cross the border into that province.

What does it cost to set up refugee camps in Cornwall, Ontario? To deploy additional police resources to Canada's border towns? To set up new immigration processing centres?

There weren't answers for those questions. But conservative MP Larry MacGuire asked something we all want to know, and was told that each asylum seeker costs anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 for us to process and care for.

So for this year already, the cost to the taxpayer is between $500 million and $640 million.

Justin Trudeau's "welcome to Canada" tweet could be the most expensive tweet in history.

Take the 1.5 billon from the CBC and start paying it down.

$500 M would go a long way to look after our own, not to be wasted on illegal aliens who are bent on destroying Christians.

Here’s a FOI question for your news agency to follow. Ask how long the average secret, top secret or enhanced reliability check took prior to 2016-01-01. Then ask what the current time estimated time is to process the above checks are now. These are required for all government employees and military members. Finally ask how many government jobs are currently not being filled as a result of these security clearances not being completed.

Don’t expect the spoiled brat pack of golden spoon fed trust fund baby Laurentian Elites like Trudeau to pay for this as those swine have 501 different ways to protect and hide their money…’s Canadians struggling and making under 50,000 a year who will pick up the full tab……just so Zoolander can virtue signal to the UN and angle for a job with his globalist mentors…..Canadian citizens and children are not even a remote afterthought to the vain vapid airhead

James Hala-I’m sure they could also cut back on all the life long tax paying pensioners lavish pensions to help the liberals’ spending habits. So sad that as Sheila says, this could be the most expensive tweet in history. If life was fair we could send Trudeau the bill.

And our veterans are fighting for a few dollars!
commented 2017-09-30 17:22:53 -0400
We can always cut back on benefits and medical care for our veterans so we can bring in more Islamic terrorists ….that is on page one of Mohammad " bin Zoolander" Trudeau’s to do list

He wastes so much it is beyond comprehension. The hits come so fast people just start tuning them out. At their folly I might add. If Canada doesn’t start paying attention to the antics of the Liberal party soon it is going to get real ugly in this country, real ugly.

Ah what the hey. Jihadi Justin will just raise taxes more to pay for all this while maintaining his own lavish lifestyle. It’s just taxpayers monies the Lieberals believe belongs to them! They’re entitled….y’know!

Excellent report Sheila, please keep digging.

Don’t worry i am sure Justin and his finance minister will open their wallets for this , as will the idiots who voted for them, and i bet Jay and Jimmy are already putting their money where their mouths are and working overtime to pay for their beloved refugees.

Canadian Mongrel, the name of the song from Looney Tunes is called The Merry Go Round Broke Down. Both titles are rather appropriate for our looney tunes leaders and the damage they are doing don’t you think? They are breaking our merry go round. Here you go, from 1937:

As per request:

Once Justin is gone – and I don’t care if he’s voted out or some good, patriotic Canadian citizens lynch the evil, treasonous bastard – all the illegals, criminals and sub-human trash Justin invited in to destroy Canada will have to go…all of them!
So don’t get comfortable…

Well I guess they will not kill us off to soon, as long as we the Taxpayers owe that kind of money and it is increasing every day. Our life expectancy just increased. Trudeau is a genius.
commented 2017-09-29 20:37:46 -0400
Most of them are the problem of the US. Send them back right now, as we have our own problem refugees to take care of. We already do more for Haiti than any other Country per capita.
Canada has been supporting Haiti for more than 50 years.
Keep in mind that Haitian Women seem to get pregnant by just looking at a man; soon 13,000 will be 26,000 .

Canada will spend billions and most Canadians will not have a clue.

They are takers and nothing more.

Deport the lot of them.

Yep, the twit, Baby Doc, tweeted just like a tweety-pie. Now Canadian taxpayers get to play Sylvester and take the pratfall for tweety’s sick joke. Cue the loony tunes theme music.

I think he meant “Sunni ways!”

Once you understand that the government of Canada is nothing more than a jailer and slave keeper of the people, for the UN, because the UN is where they get their marching orders, and they do what ever the UN says. It will all make sense to you.

Send the bill to Soros for warehousing his open borders entitlement migrants – Truedough is just doing what his globalist patrons tell him but he’s sticking you with the bill. This type of entitlement giveaway is not sustainable, and when that crash comes Sunny Ways Justin will be on a sunny Cuban beach sipping Bicardi while you kids are shackled to debt slavery. He really DID mean “sunny ways”….but for his insulated self , not you.
