Liberal immigration minister suggests that Conservatives “dance with white supremacists”
“They’ll take us back to a Canada in which Islamophobia becomes the norm. We don’t want that. We don’t want to go backwards. We want to go forwards,” said Hussen, the York South–Weston MP and Immigration minister.

“Vote for the leaders who will not divide you, not dance with white supremacists’” he implores.
No stranger to race-hustling, Hussen has used invective language against critics of a severely compromised immigration system that has seen some 40,000 people illegally cross into Canada since January 2017.
Last May Sylvain Ricard, the Auditor General of Canada, reported that asylum claims are now backlogged five-years because of the situation, while Hussen has answered his critics by accusing them of being anti-immigrant, fearmongers and even anti-Canadian.
