Opinion: Leaked Documents Show that Liberal Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen is a Racist

Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen is a racist, at least by Justin Trudeau’s standards.

Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Ahmed Hussen makes an announcement on medical inadmissibility as Minister of Public Services and Procurement Carla Qualtrough, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Serge Cormier, and Minister of Science, Sport and Persons with Disabilities Kirsty Duncan look on, in the Foyer of the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Monday, April 16, 2018.

Did Ahmed Hussen treat someone differently based on their race? As far as we can tell no, but that is not the definition of racism anymore. If you are wondering if I am going to spout some nonsense about power and privilege, sorry I don’t have a sociology degree. For this article I will be using the Justin Trudeau definition of racism: Anyone who questions or criticizes his immigration policy (or lack there of).

I feel like this definition is appropriate since Ahmed Hussen himself publicly endorsed this view recently. While being interviewed by the CBC on the subject of Justin Trudeau calling a Quebec woman a racist for asking if Quebec will be refunded for the 146 million they spent on illegal immigrants, Hussen backed Trudeau’s accusation. He publicly stated the “the video speaks for itself”, after being unable to identify at what point any racism actually occurred.

If you are confused by this new definition of racism, you are not alone. Remember these are the same geniuses who gave us the reasoning: ISIS (The Islamic State) has nothing to do with Islam, but criticism of ISIS is Islamophobic.

If you understand this logic, congratulations you are now a federal cabinet minister.

Ahmed Hussen has been pretty public on his views on the unchecked migration from people claiming asylum form America (one of the safest and richest countries in the world). He even penned an article in the Toronto Star in July, a month that saw a 23% spike in border crossings, on how well the system is working.

When his counter parts Michelle Rempel and Lisa MacLeod raised questions on the seemingly endless tide of migrants pouring into the country, Hussen called them “fear mongers” and “unCanadian”.

Well it turns out that in an August 14th letter to the immigration section of the Canadian Bar Association, Hussen said number of asylum seekers is rising “far beyond” what the system can handle, and the situation is “not sustainable”.

As it turns out the Immigration Minister’s private views are in lock-step with his opponent’s public views. This is not surprising, as a recent Angus Reid poll showed that 66% of Canadians believe there is an immigration crisis, the other 34% apparently work for the CBC. By the way this isn’t just Conservatives, a majority of all 3 major party constituents agree there is a crisis.

It is unclear why Ahmed Hussen still has a job after this blatant display of acknowledging reality, sorry I mean racism.

So, after this clear display of duplicity from the top level of the Liberal party the question remains will the national media finally admit we have a scandal/crisis on our hands? Probably not.

Things will probably remain the same until 2019. Unchecked migration will cause a backlog in social services, increased social unrest, higher crime and the bill will be sent to the Canadian taxpayer. However, as is always the case with illegal immigration the people hit the hardest will be the legal immigrates. Pretty much all of us know a hard-working immigrant, like the nurse who takes care of your ageing grandparents diligently filling out the paperwork to bring her kids into the country properly. A process that took a few years in 2014 that will now stretch over a decade to the stress put on our immigration system by the unsustainable crossings that have gone far beyond our capabilities.

  1. Hussein is “racist” by Trudeau’s standards and “unCanadian” by his own standards. Both will also tell you that Canadians are “uninformed”.

  2. Both he and Trudeau are a contradiction by what comes out of their mouths. They should be arrested and convicted of crimes against Canada.

  3. When his counter parts Michelle Rempel and Lisa MacLeod raised questions on the seemingly endless tide of migrants pouring into the country, Hussen called them……………………….just copy this……………………………………>> wwww.hugeprofit5.com

  4. This person is from a sketchy background yet through ulterior motives is blatantly abusive of his own citizenship and current position, lets invite him back on a cold day in hell

  5. It’s really just the same old same old. What the LPC says, does, & thinks is never really in lockstep. Usually you have to wait till a year after a second mandate to figure out what they actually did policy wise (as compared to campaign speak) in the first mandate. Been that way for as long as I can remember.

    That’s why it was a refreshing change to have Stephen Harper in power for nearly a decade. The man kept more political promises then any Prime Minister in my lifetime and achieved over 80% of his electoral mandates thru 3 terms.. which is really hard to do thru 5 and a half years of minority government even with one majority mandate.

    I had high hopes that the LPC would follow a similar model early on changing our politics for the better. Unfortunately, they appear to be back to (as I said earlier..) the same old same old. That flippant disregard nearly killed the party in the last decade and probably would have if media hadn’t been giving our natural governing party a helping hand. With them up to their old tricks though? Hmm… They don’t have another Trudeau waiting in the wings to save the day so they should tread carefully. The electorate can’t be manipulated the way it once was.
