    Send them back to their country of origin.
    I think the report was approx 145 illegals arrived in Mb since Jan 2017 costing the taxpayer an additional tax dollars. I would venture to say $145,000. Per month.
    Not acceptable.

      CBC Manitoba headline:
      Refugees in Winnipeg opening their homes to help recent wave of asylum seekers
      First paragraph of article:
      “Some refugees in Winnipeg, living on “””social assistance””” themselves, are opening their homes to help other refugee claimants who need temporary housing.”
      The question to ask is: why isn’t the US of A arresting the illegals within their own borders?
      The answer: let it be Canada’s problem!
      Nice to know we have our priorities straight especially when persons with disabilities, veterans, seniors and others, continue to battle for benefits, that they should be entitled to first!

  • DAVID MEYER says:

    They are leaving the USA because they are assuming they will have to leave if they are there illegally or have criminal backgrounds, we should not be taking them in as this is a huge burden to the Manitoba taxpayers.

  • Alan says:

    Any new person coming across boarder should have to sign agreement that if they are ever in trouble with the law they are deported no question asked !!!!

  • Rachel Leonard says:

    welcoming these illegals in , gives the pollitions a warm fuzzy feeling. The taxpayer has little input in the decision except to pay more taxes. How much more welfare can we stand? Where are the jobs ? What are thier job skills ? Why are they running the USA is a safe country!!
