UN praises Canada for keeping borders open to refugees during pandemic


The UNHCR's Canadian representative Rema Jamous Imseis recently told the Canadian Press that the agency was thankful Canada kept its borders open to refugees while other countries closed their borders to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. "It hasn't, unfortunately, been at the levels that we had planned for prior to the pandemic, but it still is offering that critical lifeline to people who desperately need it," she said.
