Description

Figures from Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) show that the influx of asylum seekers has clogged the system.

Thousands of claimants have crossed into Canada through the porous undefended border.

About 13,000 of the 32,000 claims have been made this way, but only a few hundred have had their claims processed.

Sean Rehaag (SJD) is a professor at the Osgoode Hall Law School at York University.
