Hussen faces “Toy pile of shame” at office

Ahmed Hussen, our MP and the Minister of Immigration, had a ‘toy pile of shame’ outside his office this week. The toys were left there to protest the Canada’s policies against refugee claimants, and children in particular.

Critics, including Amnesty International, are calling on the federal government to rescind the Safe Third Country Agreement, which requires  claimants to seek refugee protection in the first country they land in. They say that the United States is no longer a safe country for refugees, especially in light of the separation of children and parents.

Because the agreement applies only at regular border crossings, tens of thousands of refugee claimants have crossed on foot.

One thought on “Hussen faces “Toy pile of shame” at office”

  1. It would be great to think our MP pays any attention to his constituents for all his playing up his own immigrant background.

    Canada should refuse to be party to the persecution politics that are causing so much needless suffering when so much of the world has became unsafe.

    Do the right thing indeed, Mr Hussen.
