Asylum seeker: “I just want to go to Canada”

The Rebel’s Faith Goldy made a short interview with an illegal immigrant/ asylum seeker/ refugee who illegally crossed the border from upstate New York into Canada.

You’ve just come by yourself? How long have you been in America for?

Four months.

So do you have any wife or children?

Where were you born?

[I was] born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, that’s why [I left Eritrea].

An investigative report by The Rebel Media showed the ease with which illegal migrants, most of whom appear to be single men from the Middle East, cross the US-Canada border. When migrants arrive at a nearest crossing, they are shuttled to the border by taxi drivers for a fee, a method which has become somewhat an industry for unscrupulous cabbies who want to make a quick buck.

Migrants also take advantage of an existing loophole in the Safe Third Country Agreement which enables those crossing the Canada-U.S. border illegally to be detained and file an asylum application from within Canada, as opposed to being turned away if they claim asylum at official border crossings and airports.
