Hussen said that the the Conservatives “don’t have a plan. You know what their plan is? To militarize the border and place a CBSA official or a RCMP official every 100 metres” he said. “We don’t have the resources for that kind of half-baked, impractical plan.” He went on to say “I hope they can bring concrete, reasonable proposals to the table.”
Almost none of what he said is true. The Conservatives do not have a plan to militarize the border. They want to renegotiate the Safe Third Country Agreement, which has a glaring loophole.
Michelle Rempel, the Immigration critic, said,
“I am extremely disgusted by the desperate attack against our responsible plan to secure the border from Justin Trudeau’s Immigration Minister today. Rather than solve the problem they have created, the Liberals are determined to direct attention on anything but their failures to solve this crisis.
