The province of Manitoba is facing a nursing home shortage. Despite this, one former seniors home in Gretna, Manitoba has been repurposed to house illegal border jumpers for a few days before they can move on to more long-term shelter in Winnipeg, 120 kilometres northeast.
While residing inside this shelter, illegal migrants are offered a CBSA application for refugee status and applications for Income and Employment Insurance, should they plan to stay in the province.
On the ground in Gretna, I reached out to the government officials tasked with running the home and asked them about the demographic makeup of the migrants and why an 11 o’clock curfew has now been placed on illegals who reside there.
