MALCOLM: B.C. racetrack story shows extent of illegal immigration problem

Law enforcement officials are alleging that an official in the B.C. government has been selling racetrack licences and work permits to illegal immigrants from Mexico.

Two weeks ago, as a part of their investigation into this matter, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) conducted a large raid at the Hasting Racetrack in Vancouver. According to a law enforcement source who spoke to the Sun, 23 people were arrested.

An employee of the racetrack confirmed to CTV News in B.C. that they saw about two dozen people getting arrested at around 6:30 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 19.
