  • Nearly half of Canadians want illegal immigrants deported back to US

Roughly the same percentage of Canadians as Americans want to deport those who illegally cross the border into their country, as nearly half of Canadians believe that anyone who crosses their border without proper authorization should be deported, while a similar number of people do not support Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's liberal policies toward immigrants and refugees, a new poll found.

In the first two months of 2017 around 1,700 refugee claims were filed at the Canadian-US border, according to the Canada Border Services Agency.

It seems Canadians have had enough with the hundreds of asylum seekers entering the country from the US. The RCMP, the Canada Border Services Agency and public safety officials are said to be analyzing the influx, explains Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, who said most of the asylum seekers meant to eventually end up in Canada, rather than the US.

When President Donald Trump first announced his temporary travel ban, which halted entry into the USA from seven Muslim-majority countries and temporarily froze the refugee resettlement program, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pushed back, taking to Twitter to announce that refugees turned away by the US are welcome in Canada.

Those polled were split over whether or not illegal border crossers would make Canada less safe. But Trudeau has come under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants.

Almost half of Canadians want the illegal immigrants that have been crossing into their country since Donald Trump was elected president of the USA to be deported back to America, a Reuters/Ipsos poll has revealed.

In Manitoba alone, RCMP picked up 143 people who snuck across the Canada-U.S. border in January and February.

"There are so many people in the world who want to come in and go through the right channels".

Canadian citizens are now starting to adopt the American viewpoint on illegal immigration, which largely aided in Trump's election.

The RCMP have said more than 430 people have cross the border illegally this year, mostly in border town in BC, Manitoba and Quebec. "These guys are jumping the border", he said.

Warm weather may lead to an even greater spike in illegal immigration into Canada, warned Brian Lee Crowley, head of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute public think-tank.

According to a separate Ipsos poll, 23 percent of Canadians listed immigration as among the top national issues - up from 17 percent in December.
