16,503 people crossed illegally into Canada in 2019: RCMP

In January 2017, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted an open invitation to the world’s migrants to come to Canada.

Since then, over 50,000 illegal border crossers have flooded into Canada through the U.S. border. 

In 2018, Canada saw 20,603 people enter the country illegally and claim asylum according to statistics by the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB). 

IRB officials have recently stated that the board can’t eliminate the ballooning backlog and would require another $400 million from the federal government to clear the claims currently being processed.
