CBSA agents need more resources to keep track of failed asylum claimants
According to the union representing officials with the Canada Border Services Agency, border officers need more resources in order to keep track of people whose claims for asylum in Canada have been denied and who have been ordered to be deported. The union is calling for the number of officers to be doubled, at the least, to increase to the rate of successful removal of refugees who become failed asylum claimants. Since 2017, 45,000 people have crossed the US-Canada border through unauthorized points of entry to claim refugee status.
