Whereas Canada benefits from the millions of newcomers who have come lawfully to this country;
Whereas those who enter illegally consume resources that could be better used for those who apply following the rules;
Whereas roughly 30,000 illegal border crossers have entered Canada from the United States since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's famous "Welcome to Canada" tweet;
Whereas the Prime Minister has the power to close the legal loophole that allows illegal border crossers coming from the U.S. to stay in Canada if they walk across the border and go around official ports of entry;
We hereby call on the government to close the loophole, stop the illegal border crossings and support lawful immigration.
