Seems to me that Canada just lets ANYONE fly in and where they goes nobody knows.<br><br>You haven't got a clue what you are talking about. You haven't got the foggiest idea what service performs immigration checks in Canada, let alone what it checks for or who they let in. You know almost NOTHING about Canada Carp, except what you what see on Fox News.<br>I'll also remind you many of Canada's resources are spent stopping Americans from crossing the border with weapons, and that U.S. criminals are often apprehended in Canada.<br>And another thing, Canada is a free country, people can LEAVE the country anytime they want. They have no say over who the U.S. lets in.<br>The latest wanted group that may have crossed the border were travelling on British passports. I don't hear any whining about how or why Britain issued passports to these supposedly suspicious characters. Furthermore, they are not even wanted for anything other than questioning by the FBI. They have committed no known crime and have no known links to terrorism. In fact, nobody even knows if they even entered the U.S.. They were under surveillance by the R.C.M.P. but the FBI lost them at the border. Somehow, the FBI forgot to notify the INS that they were on the lookout for this bunch.<br><br>
Do NOT get me started on the INS! If they gave the real bad guys half the hassle they gave us when we were adopting our girls, Dubya would have to watch re-runs of Dragnet to find his "Evil-Doers".<br><br>
snag, I live here and I have to say carp is partly correct, unfortunately. The problem we face is not the legal immigration but our lax laws on so- called refugees who flush their passports down the toilet on the plane and claim refugee status when they reach immigration. These folks know exactly what forms to ask for when they get here. Trust me, they are treated WAY better than any legal immigrant. <br>I bet 1 in a hundred is legit. <br><br><br><br>

Marg, with all due respect, i have also lived there and have known many immigrants and even some refugees. In fact i have been to Immigration Canada offices in Toronto and i have accompanied a friend who was interviewed for a visa. I have also worked with immigration lawyers who's job it was to help immigrants get Landed Immigrant Status. I can tell you that it is far from easy for many people to get legal status in Canada and the waiting list for some is measured in years.<br><br>Seems to me that Canada just lets ANYONE fly in and where they goes nobody knows<br><br>The is utter baloney. Canada does not let just ANYONE fly and then just forget about them. Of course there are those who try to cheat the system. This has nothing to do with having a laissť faire immigration system that just opens the door to anybody as Carp suggests. Are there problems? Of course there are. Name a country that doesn't have them. Does Canada award legal status to anybody just for the asking? Of course they don't. Do some "refugees" disappear into the woodwork? No doubt about it. Does Canada try to find them and deport some? Of course they do. To flat out suggest that Canada doesn't care or is an open door to anyone is just plain wrong, and that's what Carp, without any evidence to back up what he says, suggested.<br><br><br><br>
