The Toronto Sun reports that the Canadian government is halting immigration for the time being in the midst of Wuhan virus outbreak.
According to a federal government official, the immigration program is on hold while travel restrictions stay in place.
The Trudeau government has already set targets of 341,000 permanent residents in 2020 followed by hikes of 351,000 in 2021 and 361,000 in 2022.
“Currently, only Canadian citizens, permanent residents and their immediate family are allowed to board flights to Canada or to enter through the Canada-US border,” said Kevin Lemkay, the press secretary for Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino.
“Despite the current travel restrictions, IRCC continues to accept and process applications,” Lemkay stated.
During this period of travel restriction, the department announced that no application currently in progress will be closed or rejected due to a lack of documentation. Those applications will stay open even if normal timelines for submitting biometrics or a medical exam are not fulfilled.
More than one million Canadians have applied for employment insurance in the last two weeks. The government is expecting about 4 million people applying for emergency benefits in the weeks to come. According to a report from the Parliamentary Budget Officer, Canadian unemployment could reach 15 percent this year, triple what it was before the crisis started.
If Canada wants to maintain social cohesion and serve its citizens adequately, it would put a lid on immigration.
Meanwhile, it’s giving living lessons on immigration to America — which is still importing 85,000 H-1B graduate gig workers during this crisis— on migration restriction.
A truly bizarre scenario.
NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.
Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
