GOLDSTEIN: Trudeau a deadbeat when it comes to asylum seekers

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needs to stop acting like a deadbeat parent and provide for the tens of thousands of asylum seekers who have streamed into Canada from the U.S. at unmanned border crossings through ‘irregular migration.’

I’m using the terms preferred by Trudeau and his minions — as opposed to illegal border crossers — because that triggers the Liberals into accusing anyone who uses them of being ‘un-Canadian’ and part of the ‘alt-right,’ which is their predictable, dumb and desperate attempt to dodge the real issue.

Back in the real world, what’s un-Canadian is for Trudeau’s government to admit almost 30,000 asylum seekers into Canada through unmanned border crossings and then dump the responsibility for looking after them onto provinces and cities, which had no say in the process and lack the resources to cope.

The Liberals portray critics of their actions as racists — the same way they portrayed critics of their Islamophobia motion — in order to divert attention from the real issue.

In this case, it’s the Trudeau government shirking its responsibility to help provincial and municipal governments cope with the cost of caring for these asylum seekers as their claims are being adjudicated, which often takes years.
