Jenny in the House: We need action--not just words--to address refugee crisis & Safe Third Country Agreement

On February 21, 2017, Jenny stood to speak about the refugee crisis:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, under the safe third country agreement, refugees cannot apply for asylum in Canada if they are already in the U.S. Many refugees are crossing the border illegally, risking life and limb because they have no other option. Clearly, the Conservatives had no plan, and while the Liberals sound welcoming, they have implemented absolutely zero measures to address this situation. Things will only get worse.

Will the Prime Minister finally act, suspend the unfair agreement, support border communities, and help those desperate refugees?"
