Illegal Aliens in Canada Complaining About Lack of Free Housing, Cell Phones

Illegal aliens who are increasingly passing up the U.S.A. and heading into Canada are now complaining that Canada does not offer enough freebies in money, cell phones, and housing, a report says.

Despite that illegal aliens have access to welfare cash within days of entering Canada, some immigrants are saying that the country does not do enough to find housing, most especially in the sanctuary city of Montreal, Daily Caller reported.

Ahmed Iftikhar, a 42-year-old man who entered the U.S. illegally and then proceeded to Canada with his wife and four children, recently told CTVNews that he couldn’t find comfortable living space for his large family.

Iftikhar complained that the cash assistance he began receiving almost immediately isn’t enough, and there is not a government official who seems able to get him more.

Another illegal alien, a 30-year-old man from Haiti, who told the media that he entered Canada because he feared deportation if he stayed in the U.S., also complained that he had not found more permanent lodgings beyond temporary shelters.

Another illegal alien interviewed insisted that Canada should give free cell phones to help illegal aliens find jobs, find lodging, and to stay in touch with government offices.

Since Donald Trump’s election to the White House, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made it a special point to open wide Canada’s doors to illegal immigrants. He has encouraged them to pass through the U.S. to our northern neighbor.

But since Trudeau’s political calculation, Canada has seen a massive flood of illegal aliens that the country’s social system is not prepared to handle.

In May, for instance, it was reported that Canada had experienced more illegal aliens by that time this year than they did in all of 2016.

The flood of immigrants has taxed Canada’s immigration services, forcing legal immigrants to suffer years of delays despite languishing on lists waiting to enter the country legally. The flood has also wildly inflated immigration spending and put a strain on housing and shelter services, according to Forbes magazine.
