Quebec Premier François Legault told Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that he wants all illegal border crossing refugees sent to other provinces – and that the Roxham Road border must be closed.

Quebec Premier tells Trudeau to close Roxham Road border

Legault made the request to Trudeau in a letter obtained by Radio-Canada.

Roxham Road first came onto the public radar in 2017 when Justin Trudeau posted tweets about how everyone trying to enter Canada would be allowed in.

“Quebec has taken on a completely disproportionate share of Canada’s asylum seekers,” Legault said in the letter to Trudeau.

“This influx cannot continue. Quebec’s capacity to receive refugees has been exceeded.”

Legault requested the migrants be moved out of the province as soon as they illegally cross the 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 via Roxham Road instead.

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

“Roxham Road will have to be closed some day, whether we like it or not,” Legault said to Trudeau. 

“It seems to me that it is your primary responsibility as prime minister of this country to ensure that these boundaries are respected.” 

Quebec’s Premier further said that the massive influx has resulted in limited housing opportunities for the migrants and many are becoming homeless. 

Legault also stressed that the migrants are putting pressure on the province in terms of protecting the French language. 

The number of asylum seekers receiving welfare cheques in Quebec was 12,958 in 2021. That number ballooned to 37,754 in 2022.
