The data was uncovered in an inquiry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) posed by Alberta Conservative MP Michelle Rempel-Garner, who asked for information on the government's contracts with hotels to house illegal migrants and the numbers of migrants being "accommodated."
There are 14 hotels on contract across the country. The documents cover the timeframe of 2018 to October 2022.
The documents show a surge in illegal crossings, from just 50 requiring hotel accommodations in 2018 up to 27,555 inclusive to October 2022. The surge has been attributed to a tweet sent by Trudeau in late 2017, wherein the Prime Minister welcomed migrants to Canada to troll President Trump's ban on immigration from several failed states.
Lacolle, Quebec, the site of the infamous Roxham Road illegal crossing where the majority of such entries happen, has gone from 25 illegal border crossers housed in hotels in 2018 to 615 in 2022. Dorval now has over 10,000 asylum seekers being put up in hotels - 10 times the 2021 numbers. Prior to 2021, there were no asylum seekers requiring "accommodations" at Dorval.
In the province of Ontario, Ottawa, Cornwall, and Niagara Falls are housing migrants from Roxham Road. 26,000+ (of the 31,870) migrants that entered Canada via the illegal crossing at Roxham Road between 2018 and October 2022, were housed at hotels; about 81.76%.
The problem is set to get much worse for Canadian taxpayers.
New York City, ironically a sanctuary city, is now purchasing bus tickets to send migrants from the Big Apple to the Canadian border.
