Parliament Video: Jenny in QP: "Humanitarian leaders don't shut their borders to asylum seekers."

Jenny has learned, in reviewing the Liberal government's 2019 Budget Omnibus bill, that they are trying to sneak in changes to refugee laws in their Budget. Humanitarian leaders don't shut their borders to asylum seekers in the midst of a refugee crisis. Lives are at risk. That's why, on April 9, 2019, Jenny rose in Question Period to ask once again:

Jenny Kwan Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, climate leaders do not buy pipelines. Feminist prime ministers do not turf female colleagues because they speak truth to power. Humanitarian leaders do not shut their borders to asylum seekers during a refugee crisis. Now the Liberals have snuck in changes to refugee laws in the budget bill. That means people like Seidu Mohammed, an LGBTQ man from Ghana, whose asylum claim was accepted after he crossed irregularly from the U.S., will not even get a chance to apply.

Lives are at risk. Will the Prime Minister do what is right and suspend the safe third country agreement?"
