Toronto Star: He lost his fingers trying to cross the border. Now the new Canada-U.S. deal has him ‘terrified’

NDP immigration critic Jenny Kwan criticized Trudeau and U.S. President Joe Biden for “secretly” signing the modified agreement a year ago but only making it public the day before the new rule took effect, on March 25.

“People who are persecuted for trying to escape discrimination, for trying to escape violence, for trying to escape rejection for being who they are, for trying to get to safety would be pushed further underground,” Kwan told Monday’s outdoor news conference amid a -15 C wind chill. 

“Human trafficking will increase as a result of this rule.”
