Immigrating to Canada gets tougher
Canada to have tough rules on Immigration
Canada has always been trying to combat with the challenge of illegal immigrants. About 8% of the immigrants try to enter the nation illegally and most of them are criminals.
To curb this percentage, Immigration Minister, Jason Kenney has announced a new regulation that would be tightening conditions for foreigners entering Canada. The legislation is mainly aimed at “foreign criminals”.
According to this legislation Political refugees will be expelled from the nation. Both permanent and temporary residents committing a crime and sentenced for more than six months will also be expelled from the country.
Jason Kenney reported that, “endless appeals by foreign criminals have been stopped so that their removal from Canada is not delayed and they do not continue to terrorize the innocent Canadians.”
Kenney supported his statement with a lot many live examples. As one example, he spoke about a Chinese born man who achieved the status of “permanent resident of Canada in 1990.” This person, Joe Woo, broke Canadian law and as his case was dealt there was a delay in his deportation. Meanwhile, he was found guilty of another case where he has kidnapped two people.
Kenney regretted that the criminal was still there in Canada whereas he should have been deported years back. His deportation would have prevented the kidnapping of two Canadians.
He meant to say that by the time one arrives at the conclusion of a guilt made by a foreign criminal, he commits another one may be a more serious one.
According to this new regulation the criminal would be deported from Canada right after he is caught instead of reading the circumstances and other issues.
Immigration Attorney, Lorne Waldman informed that, “Deportation will take place regardless of number of years a person has spent in Canada.”
The legislation provides authority to the Immigration Ministry to “reject request from any candidate for temporary residence for reasons of public interest.”
Canada is known for its diversity on immigrants coming to its land. Along with genuine immigrants who contribute to the economy of the nation there are some who are miscreants. They bring damage to the nation where they live at present and also to their native nations too. Canada has to come with such strict legislations to reduce the number of crimes happening on the land of this nation.
