Parliament Video: Jenny Kwan in QP: Amnesty International raising alarms about refugee protections

On April 30, 2019, Jenny asked in Question Period:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, Amnesty International raised the alarm about the Liberal shift in public policy to cater to the alt-right.

In Central and South America, sexual violence is rampant. Children as young as seven are faced with forced recruitment, yet the alt-right is vilifying refugees. They call it white nationalism. The Minister of Border Security is feeding into it by calling refugees asylum shoppers. With Bill C-97, they cannot even apply for protection in Canada.

If the Liberals have the courage to stand by the right to remove, will they table those changes as a stand-alone bill in the House?"
