Quebec and Manitoba see influx of asylum seekers crossing U.S. border – The Globe and Mail

“Mr. Trudeau said last week his government was “very concerned” about the rise in asylum seekers. He emphasized the need to protect both migrants and Canada’s border.

Refugee lawyer David Matas said Sunday when police discover migrants crossing into Canada they take them to the CBSA, which then screens them for security reasons but does not detain the migrants simply for entering the country at an unguarded area.

He said he has had a number of clients from Somalia who crossed into Canada, avoiding the ports-of-entry.”
