Parliament Video: Jenny Kwan in QP: Will the PM withdraw changes to immigration law hidden in the Budget bill?

On April 10, 2019, I stood in Question Period to ask if Prime Minster Trudeau would withdraw the major changes to immigration that are hidden in his Budget bill:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, Liberals called out the Conservatives for cozying up to white nationalist Faith Goldy, but now the Prime Minister wants to close our border to asylum seekers who are fleeing persecution and violence with a law that prevents them from being able to apply for protection in Canada.

When Faith Goldy supports the Liberal immigration policy, we know we are on the wrong side of the issue. By hiding it in a 392-page omnibus bill and refusing to refer it to the immigration committee, the Prime Minister is trying to sneak through this shameful law. Will the Prime Minister stop talking out of both sides of his mouth and withdraw this legislation?"
