Jenny in the House: Why are Liberals rushing C-23 forward and giving more powers to Trump’s border guards?

On February 24, 2017, Jenny stood and asked this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, yesterday, the Premier of Manitoba announced that the province will provide funding for housing and resettlement services for hundreds of asylum seekers who have risked life and limb to come to Canada. The premier also called on the federal government to set up a nationally coordinated response.

The continuation of the safe third country agreement will mean that even more refugees will come to Canada illegally. As provinces begin stepping up, why has the Liberal government taken no action and provided zero measures to address this situation? Why are they missing in action?"
