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 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 There 27 Other Countries For Refugees To Go To Than Canada. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Roxanne James doesn’t understand why in the world a refugee would choose to fly clear across the world to seek refugee status in Canada. When there are 27 other countries, that are much closer by, that would offer them immediate protection.
“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?”
Roxanne James Would You Let Undocumented Refugees Stay At Your House?
Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Roxanne James PUSHES BACK at critics who suggest we should let refugees enter Canada without proper documentation.
“If they arrived without documents and with false documents, would you welcome any of those 41 people into your house and take full responsibility for their actions and whereabouts? Or do you think that detention is necessary so that we can identify people who arrive on our border, unannounced, illegally, through human smuggling, in mass arrivals? Do you not think that the Government of Canada owes the citizens of Canada the safety and security we need to give them?”
Roxanne James Islamophobia Race Baiting Using Omar Khadr Middle Name Ahmed. Conservative MP Roxanne James running for re-election in SCARBOROUGH CENTRE
Roxanne James Islamophobic and anti-Muslim sentiment is on FULL display here in this interview. By using his middle name (as in Omar Ahmed Khadr) she is trying to incite a crowd and play dog-whistle politics.
She clearly has no depth and just repeats talking points over and over again. Not answering a question, but just repeating certain points she memorized again and again.
But the use of Omar Khadr full name promotes prejudice, hatred and fear towards the Islam religion and Muslims.
