THE NEW BRUNSWICK REFUGEE CLINIC RESPONDS TO TRUMP EXECUTIVE ORDERS, DEMANDS AN IMMEDIATE REVOCATION OF THE SAFE THIRD COUNTRY AGREEMENT, AND CALLS FOR AN INCREASE IN REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT TO CANADA
Following President Trump’s Executive Orders on immigration, the New Brunswick Refugee Clinic is deeply concerned about the fate of the thousands of refugees who were in the process of being resettled to the USA.
The United States latest measures violate the Geneva Convention and are discriminatory towards refugees and immigrants of Muslim faith or background.
The New Brunswick Refugee Clinic joins other social justice, immigrant and refugee advocates to urge the Federal Government, Mr. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Ahmed Hussen to immediately revoke the Safe Third Country Agreement which precludes those in the USA from making a refugee claim at a Canadian border.
We also ask the Canadian government to offer to resettle refugees who were in the process of being resettled in the USA, but who are denied entry following these orders, and to increase Canada’s refugee resettlement targets for 2017 to address the continued global refugee crisis.
The New Brunswick Refugee Clinic’s mandate is to provide free bilingual legal services to refugee claimants and persons making humanitarian-based immigration applications in New Brunswick who cannot afford a private lawyer. We believe that all people in need of protection should have access to legal services and to a safe haven.
