Mr. Speaker, yesterday I asked the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration why he is ignoring the Immigration Act by issuing minister's permits to people who were refused entry to Canada.
This is no drop in the bucket. There were 7,000 last year. Among them were 11 who had been previously deported from Canada. First they are out and then the minister lets them back in.
What is the point of deporting people if the minister is just going to sneak them in again through the back door? Why has he kept this all a secret until now?
