PRIORITIES OF THE IMMIGRATION MINISTER

   The federal minister of immigration objected Monday to the new Ontario Tory government's references to people claiming refugee status as "illegal border crossers."
   On Monday, an emailed statement sent to The Canadian Press from Ford's office repeated the "illegal border crossers" terminology.
   Ahmed Hussen, the federal minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, told a news conference Monday he believes Ford's vocabulary is inaccurate.
   "I'm very concerned by Premier Ford and (provincial) minister (Lisa) MacLeod really making statements that are difficult to understand when it comes to how they're describing asylum seekers," Hussen told reporters in Halifax.
