Our record of calling out Justin Trudeau’s “refugee rush” as nothing more than a vanity project is well documented. The issue is mostly out of the headlines now, but that doesn’t mean those affected aren’t still feeling the repercussions of the ill-considered plan.
A case in point is the recent story in Metro revealing that Bedrettin El-Muhammed and his wife Meryem Biser have struggled to put food on the table for their five children after paying rent and other necessities.
As a result of not getting the help the Trudeau government promised them, the family has been relying on food banks and food baskets from the local mosque - essentially relying on the help and generosity of strangers which is the way private refugee sponsorship would work but Justin wanted this to be about government sponsored refugees. He got his way and yet, he’s not helping them.
Amazingly, the Liberals are looking at bringing in another 25,000 by the end of the year and yet we can’t help those that are already here.
