Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I believe my points are relevant, and I will tie this in for the member so that he can see it as clearly as I do.
As I was saying, it's worth noting that, according to the Inland Refugee Society of B.C., some 70% of the applications are successful in getting status. Also, with the lack of resources at the IRB, 50% of the cases are deferred and are not heard on time.
What does that mean? It means that those families are stuck in limbo, and they rely on groups like the Inland Refugee Society of B.C. to support them. Also, without their cases being heard, they cannot access any resources anywhere else. They cannot find work, and that is a major problem.
So this stuff is all tied together. I know that members are annoyed that I'm talking about this. It is so very relevant to what we do. This is what we need to deal with. We need to make sure that our government—your government—collectively addresses these issues so that our immigration system is not undermined.
