    Since January 2017 when Justin Trudeau posted his infamous #WelcometoCanada tweet, more than 50,000 people have crossed Canada’s border illegally from the United States to claim refugee status. More than 90% of those new arrivals cross a ditch between New York State and Quebec. “A majority of Canadians view border crossing asylum from the United States as a damnable breach of our legal process and goodwill,” said pollster John Wright who added this is the area where the Trudeau government gets a failing grade. When asked if the government has done a good job dealing with “Those who are crossing Canada’s borders at unofficial points and claiming asylum,” 64% said no compared to 36% who said yes. The sentiment that the government was doing a bad job was highest in Alberta (76%), Quebec (65%) and Ontario (63%). When Canadians were asked which part of the immigration system they want their political leaders focused on, 70% said those crossing illegally.
