Liberals Used Misleading Statistic to Discourage Nigerian Asylum Seekers


Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, Transport Minister Marc Garneau and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen held a joint press conference in Montreal to calm fears related to the influx of asylum seekers - 7,500 have crossed into Canada from the United States since this January. The feds say there are currently approximately 70 to 80 individuals crossing the border each day, but they expect that number to swell to 400 a day in the coming weeks as the weather warms.
