The Toronto Star reports that thousands of refugee claimants living in Canada haven't been fully cleared by national security screening agencies.
In an internal border agency report obtained by lawyer Richard Kurland through freedom of information, the Star reports that “Refugee claimants accounted for 41 per cent of the overall security screening backlog” but that, “while official statistics showed only 0.2 per cent of the screened asylum seekers were deemed to be a threat to Canada, the fact 11,745 were in the country and not yet assessed fully was troubling.”
Worse still, “the average wait time to complete the border agency security screening was 72 days, with the oldest case in the backlog being 857 days.”
At a minimum, potential national security risks are waltzing around Canada before they complete their security screenings for at least two months and at most, over two and a half years.
That long timeline is presents too great a risk to the Canadian public and to actual refugees - the kind escaping genocide and sexual slavery at the hands of Islamic extremists.
Today I’ll show you stories of Yazidi refugees who are still tormented by Islamic radicals in Canada. One former sex slave ran into her slave trader on an Ottawa bus. Another group of Yazidi women are being intimidated with phone calls, pictures, and photographs not only of the genocide experienced by their people, but even their own time as sex slaves from men who “appear to have Iraqi, North African and Gulf state accents.”
I’ll also show you how a Liberal MP named Salma Zahid reacted when Conservative Immigration Critic, Michelle Rempel, proposed a study to find out how all these gaps in security screening keep happening. Rempel was accused of fear-mongering and divisiveness.
We’ve got the best parts of that exchange for you today. Let’s just say Zahid came to instantly regret it.
