This may be a sensitive subject for some, but it’s an issue that must be voiced and heard by all. Immigration policies have been slipping through the fingers of those in charge of it, and unqualified, non-contributing immigrants are being let into the country to damage the economy for local residents, citizens and hard working folk who have also immigrated. I’m not saying that immigration should cease, nor that we have too many. All I’m saying is that high quality immigrants with something to offer our economy and society are at a low population that could easily be raised.
The low quality immigrants who come into our country and do nothing but take from us are at an all time high. If our immigration policies were more strict, we could help those who have qualities, skills, and experience that would benefit us to get into the country. We, as citizens, need to have a tough stance on where we stand for these laws and policies. It will benefit not only ourselves, but our generations to come. Entry level jobs that should be helping our recent graduates into the work force are being filled by new immigrants, and this is lowering the success of the people who spent good money in the education system to make a living. In no way is this a racist stance, I believe I am merely stating facts that can be changed if we make our voices heard.
According to a recent census, Vancouver is one of the top growing cities in Canada. It’s been said that this mainly due to the ease of immigration from eastern countries (Japan, China, Korea, Philippines, etc). As the trip crosses no other countries and lands on the coast, the travel time is the lowest it can be if someone from these countries is planning to move to North America or Canada. With so many immigrants coming in, it’s slowly creating an overload for immigration lawyers, and creating a very high demand for them. Some new immigrants are forced to see lawyers that do not specialize in immigration, simply due to the fact that they cannot find an available immigration lawyer to work with.
If we are going keep our economy strong and our citizens working, we need to make sure that we stand for high quality immigrants. If the lawyers are busy with those people seeking to work in our country, it is worth the extra work. High quality, working immigrants are very valuable to our economy and society and they should be rewarded for playing such an important role. It’s those who come to our country to seek our benefits (health care, retirement funds, our way of life) and give nothing back that should not be falling through the fingers of those we trust in charge of immigration.
Please, my fellow citizens, make your voice heard and stand for a strong stance on immigration. We need our country to run strong and free with the help of everyone who wishes to be a part of it.
