Illegal immigration levels in Quebec have nearly broken all records over the last couple of months.

According to the latest report on asylum claims and interceptions from the Government of Canada, the RCMP made 16,319 interceptions in Quebec between January and June 2022, with 3,449 interceptions and 3,066 interceptions being made in May and June, respectively.

As noted by Brian Lilley, writing for the Toronto Sun, this is more interceptions in six months than all of 2019, with June and May being the “second- and third-highest months on record, surpassed only by August 2017.”

Due to the influx of illegal immigrants flooding into Quebec from New York, the province of Quebec wants to shut down Roxham Road, an infamous unofficial border crossing in Hemmingford, 50kms from Montreal.

“It’s unacceptable,” Premier Francois Legault said earlier this month. “It’s impossible because we don’t have the capacity.”

Rather than dealing with illegal immigration, the federal government is now working with Quebec to transfer illegal immigrants from Quebec to cities in Ontario.

“IRCC is working with the City of Ottawa and the Municipality of Niagara Falls to help refugee claimants find alternative housing and access the community supports available to them,” said Julie Lafortune, a spokesperson for the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Transfers from Quebec to Ontario began on June 30.

Of course, there’s also a cost associated with moving so many people, not to mention the cost of sheltering so many illegal immigrants.

According to the CBC, Quebec received half a billion dollars in taxpayers’ money to “help alleviate the pressures of housing refugee claimants” between 2017 and 2020.

Notably, 2017 was also the year that Trudeau practically flung open the doors for illegal immigrants and waved them in, tweeting that everyone is welcome in Canada. He has since broken the record for legal immigration, too.

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada” Trudeau tweeted in January 2017.
