Canada Rejects Amnesty for Undocumented Workers

Ottawa has ruled out amnesty for the estimated 200,000 undocumented workers toiling in Canada's underground economy, saying it would not be fair to those who have applied legally and are waiting in line, according to a letter obtained by The Globe and Mail.

Allowing undocumented workers to stay would likely "encourage more illegal immigration," noted Linda Arseneau of Citizenship and Immigration Canada's ministerial enquiries division in an Oct. 18 letter to the Universal Workers Union. Click here.

Could it be that Canada is making more sense than the United States? Canada, a country with one of the most liberal immigration policies in this hemisphere cannot be accused of being anti-immigrant. The fact that a sovereign nation, and one respected for its adherence to law and order, concurs with many Americans who eschew the concept of amnesty, gives legitimacy to the Minutemen (et al} cause and proves that one can oppose amnesty while still being pro-immigration. Take that professor Hing! Think again you apply the term "anti-immigrant" so liberally.
