Bill C-31 Could Lead to Approved Refugee Claimants Being Deported

The new Protecting Canada’s Immigration System Act, also known as Bill C-31, could lead to approved refugee claimants being deported. You can read more about it here.

Much More Harm Will Come From Bill C-31 Than Good

Bill C-31 was initially passed last year only after certain key, controversial and harmful parts were removed. But now the law is set to take effect this summer, with those very parts still in place.

The Effects of Bill C-31

The Bill will allow refugees to be imprisoned for up to a year and separates refugees into two different classes – one with basic human rights and one without.

The Bill will also prove to be extremely costly: It will cost about $70,000 to imprison a refugee for a year in and of itself, while the new laws will likely be challenged in court with lawsuits.

In addition, refugee claims have already been accepted can be revoked if the Canadian government decides the situation in their country of origin changes. If that’s the case, those claimants can be deported from Canada.

This article on Bill C-31 from Rabble News this week provides great insight and detailed background into the new law and is definitely worth a read.
