For too long, Canadians have seen countless stories of people who view Canada as a doormat, a light touch, whose immigration system is an easy target for fraudsters and criminals. Understandably, Canadians have had enough. They have made it clear that they want us to restore the integrity of the immigration system.
The NDP and Liberals do not seem to have any problem with these dangerous foreign criminals staying on our streets and living in our communities. I certainly have a problem with that. It shows just how out of touch they are with Canadians in all parts of the country and in all ridings.
Ind MP Brent Rathgeber Calls Roxanne James OFFENSIVE. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE.
Ind MP Brent Rathgeber writes a blog post calling MP Roxanne James behavior “OFFENSIVE” “…exceeded only by her shamelessness” This was in regards to her being the Conservative Party spokesperson on the release of Omar Khadr on bail.
And then watch Roxanne James in action with her shameless behavior in this interview below.
As Mr. Rathgeber says “she (Roxanne James) repeatedly referred to Mr. Khadr as “Omar Ahmed Khadr”. I have never heard him referred to thusly, but according to Ms. James that is in fact his name. She appears unwilling to squander an opportunity to remind Canadians that Khadr is a Muslim.”

Roxanne James Refugees Come To Canada To Shop For The Best Benefit Package. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
At Commons Committee Roxanne James was lamenting how refugees rip off the system in Canada.
Saying “Those (refugees) shopping around for the best benefit package they can find. Having said that, when we talk about the European Union, it’s actually costing Canadian taxpayers $170 million per year. I think that’s a figure we need to mention more and more, because people cannot believe the cost to Canadian taxpayers. ”
Roxanne James Not Asking Refugees For ID Upon Arrival Is IGNORANT. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
At a Citizenship and Immigration Committee on May 3rd, 2012 Roxanne James was grilling Richard Stanwick President Elect, Canadian Pediatric Society about Refugees under 16. Roxanne’s point of view is that parents who arrive without ID should be locked up. And those who disagree with that are IGNORANT. Saying

Roxanne James Asks Should Refugees Expect A Chocolate On Their Pillow? Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James was questioning a witness about the living conditions for refugees in detention. Saying, “I sometimes wonder if the opposition would like to provide a five-star hotel, with a chocolate on the pillow every morning.”
“Although it’s not a five-star hotel, I’m sure these facilities provide adequate accommodation for the people who come to Canada by irregular methods.”
Roxanne James Suggests Asylum Seekers Come To Canada For Free Health Care. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE.
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James questions Professor Catherine Dauvergne, an expert on Refugees. But all MP James seems to want to get to the bottom of is how Refugees come to Canada for the Welfare and free Health Care.
Saying, “We heard that within the European Union there are 27 countries, so someone from one particular country could choose to go to another country that’s very close by if they were fleeing for their life or in fear of persecution.”
“Why would someone come all the way to Canada and submit a claim as a refugee fearing for their life, as opposed to going to another country where they would have protection immediately?”
“why come to Canada as a refugee claimant, not come the proper way with a visa, permanent residency, and so forth, and then abandon their claim? To me it doesn’t make sense to say they can’t go to another European Union country and receive that protection when they come to Canada, accept benefits for one to two years, and then don’t show up for their hearing. They abandon their claim, voluntarily leave, and go back to their country of origin. I don’t think we’ve actually had an answer that makes sense to the people who may be listening to this committee today.
As a separate side note, when we talk about the European Union, would you say that the health benefits and the welfare system here in Canada are far better than in countries in the European Union? Do you know that answer?”
“We had someone here from the Taxpayers Federation who indicated it costs Canadian taxpayers about $50,000 per refugee claimant. We have some figures: $170 million per year in benefits, such as welfare, health benefits, etc.”
Roxanne James Unbelievable RUDENESS Towards Witnesses AT Committee. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Scarborough Centre MP Roxanne James is synonymous for this characteristic. Her unbelievable rudeness towards witnesses at committee. There are so many examples of her cutting people off, not letting people finish a sentence and just being downright nasty and rude.
In this committee hearing Roxanne takes on two immigration lawyers and challenges them on their experience in immigration matters. This despite her not having any background in immigration, as her previous occupation was a real estate agent.
She gets called out for her rudeness by the chair, not once but twice!
