Jenny in the House: Will the government finally take the issue of asylum seekers seriously?

On September 20, 2017, Jenny rose and asked this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, Canadians knew that Trump's anti-immigrant policies would create a climate of fear in the U.S. In August alone, over 5,000 asylum seekers crossed into Quebec and it doubled in B.C. NGOs are left grappling with this without any additional resources. At committee, Liberal MPs have shut down debate on this issue not once, not twice, but four times.

Will the government finally agree to work with all sides of the House to develop a comprehensive and humanitarian approach to this critical situation?"
