Because we let them.
A ship suspected of being connected to the Tamil Tigers and carrying as many as 300 migrants has weighed anchor and set a course for Canada, according to reports in the Sri Lankan media.
But why do they think they can come here and we’ll just let them in? The precedent couldn’t be clearer:
Last October, for instance, 76 Tamil refugees landed in British Columbia in another ship believed to be connected to the Tigers. The migrants have been freed while their claims are processed, which could take several years.
Hell, if I were in there position, I’d do the exact same thing. So long as this is how our border controls work, we can expect a continuing inflow of dead-enders, terrorists and assorted weirdos cutting in line ahead of legitimate immigrants and refugees.
