Roxham Road illegal migrants continue to flood into the country by the hundreds, sometimes daily, and with Quebec full and Ontario sounding alarm bells, the feds are now sending them east. 

Feds sending migrants to the Maritimes as Niagara fills up 2000 hotel rooms

Last week, Niagara’s mayor said the city was reaching its capacity limits, as 2000 hotel rooms were occupied by migrants. The city has recently taken on a surge in migrants after the feds bussed them there from Quebec.

“We’re trying to be good Canadians and do what we always do, which is always lend a hand.” Mayor Jim Diodati said. “But there’s limits to everything that we can physically do.” 

“It’s started to have an impact on our community in a lot of ways.”

The feds are now shipping migrants out of Quebec both ways, as the Maritimes is now taking on some to lighten the load in Ontario. Last weekend, 2-3 buses were sent to Nova Scotia and one to New Brunswick. 

Nova Scotia’s Minister of Labour Jill Balser said between Friday and Sunday, about fifty asylum seekers were sent their way. And, New Brunswick took on 18 on Sunday.

Balser said the province welcomed the asylum seekers and the feds would provide financial compensation to her province.  She also noted provinces have agreements with the feds on how many refugees enter per year, but not asylum seekers.

Still in the early stages of what could be a massive influx, Balser remains more optimistic than the attitudes expressed by other provinces sounding capacity alarm bells.

“Who knows, they might actually start working in our health care, they might be building the housing stock that’s needed or starting new businesses,” she said.

Last month, Quebec’s immigration Christine Fréchette said that almost all of the illegal refugees who entered over the weekend were sent out of the province, to other parts of Canada.

“We’re very happy about this,” she said.

“We hope that this will be maintained and that this will be the new approach to managing the borders and asylum seekers.”

In 2022, illegal immigration levels in Quebec reached new highs with approximately 39,000 asylum-shopping migrants crossing the US-Canada border. 

As previously reported, the US National Guard is distributing bus tickets to the asylum-shopping migrants so they can leave America and illegally enter Canada instead.
