No more caged families: Scrap the Safe Third Country Agreement
Ripping screaming children from their mother’s arms. Locking babies in cages. And now, plans for the immediate mass deportation of people fleeing violence, back to their home countries.
Given the nightmare of Trump’s America, pressure is mounting on the Trudeau government to scrap the Safe Third Country Agreement—an outdated pact between Canada and the US that denies asylum seekers protection in Canada if they try to come via an official land border crossing with the US, since the agreement assumes the US is a safe place for refugees.
But America is not a safe place for refugees.
We need to take this pressure to the next level, and flood the inboxes of PM Trudeau and Immigration & Refugee Minister Ahmed Hussen with widespread calls to end this cruel agreement, to let them in, and let them stay.
