Many refugees will not find a home in Canada, even if they are granted temporary asylum. According to data supplied by the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, out of the 15,196 in-country refugee applicants processed in 2016, a total of 4,970 were rejected for various reasons, such as applicants not being considered in enough danger in their home country — and that was only after hundreds of other applications had already been terminated because the applicants had criminal records, abandoned claims, etc.

UPDATE: Here they come by the busload.

  1. Trudeau "should probably" stop saying? Let me finish that sentence for you, Mr. Groveling Gordon, "..unless of course he doesn't want to....which will be quite fine by me."

    Boy, another hard-hitting CBC piece. Our obsequious scribe also failed to mention is that very, very few of the 4,900 rejected claims will ever result in deportation.
