I tend to go to the issue of the cost associated with processing each refugee application. If it's costing a bundle to process and investigate fraudulent claims, why not look at how to reduce the cost to process refugee claims in general without cherry picking which claims are generating the most cost.

Surely there's a method by which some analyst can audit our process system and find a cheaper way other than paying civil service bureaucrats a ton of salary and bennies to sit in a cubicle and shuffle paper?

With all of the NSA snooping and sharing of what once was considered private info about our citizens info between Canada and the U.S. you'd think extending that arrangement to include Mexicans would be as simple as entering a database and looking up someone's name to verify they're experiencing some form of persecution or not.

Tit for tat so to speak, if Mexico is feeling unduly put upon by being required to apply for travel visas to Canada simply insist they submit to the same sorts of open scrutiny and record keeping Canada and the U.S. have agreed to share with each other about everything pertinent such as our personal hygiene habits and credit history.

My waist size is 36" and my inseam is 30" inches.......... can I come in now?

I'm sure they'd agree that having the U.S. and Canada gaining access to their financials and other private information is no biggy, especially in all other aspects of a supposedly civilized first world nation Canada and the U.S. claim to practice the "innocent until proven guilty" aspect while Mexico is strangely protecting their citizens rights in this regard while still adhering to a form of Napoleonic law of "proof of innocence being required".

I find all of this nonsense oxymoronic in the extreme.

I agree. We need more people in general. I think Canada's visa restriction is overly restrictive and snobbish. We should allow more South Americans to enter visa free too, Argentina, Brazil. Right now Chile is the only S American country.

that's a typical American way of thinking: already fear others will come and not leave. Get over yourself already, seriously.


Did America's policy prevent illegal immigration? No. In reality, such a policy discourages tourism and business trips, and does little to prevent illegal immigration.

I wonder based on what ground a Mexican citizen could possibly claim refugee status in Canada...Mexico is not officially considered an oppressive, undemocratic regime and political persecution is generally not an issue. Living in a highly corrupt country I do not think qualify as reason for claiming refugee status.

Mexico is a solid middle income country comparable to a eastern European nation....refugee claims from Mexican citizens should have been tossed automatically.

Most refugee claims are shams. 90% of the "refugees" from China were never under any threat or persecution. They just took advantage of the system.


This category should really be processed with the highest rigidity because there is so much cheating.

And when you are against illegal immigration, you are labeled as "racist".
