Exclusive: Almost half of Canadians want illegal border crossers deported - Reuters poll

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

A significant minority, four out of 10 respondents, said the border crossers could make Canada "less safe," underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau's Liberal government.

The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months has become a contentious issue in Canada.

There has been broad bipartisan support for high levels of legal immigration for decades in Canada. But Trudeau has come under pressure over the flow of the illegal migrants. He is questioned about it every time he appears in parliament, from opponents on the left, who want more asylum-seekers to be allowed in, and critics on the right, who say the migrants pose a potential security risk.

6. Yeah. .

I have a few friends from the US that moved here legally. It was a bit of a pain in the ass with the medical tests and stuff like that and cost some $$$ but they did it the right way and have fuck all to worry about now as long as they don't do something to lose their residency status. They had to say they were planning on becoming citizens, but they don't have to and they don't want to give up their US citizenship.

7. My Grandparents were immigrants and my Mother was a Naturalized Citizen

There is a system in place, it's a pain but we don't need Tuberculosis, Dengue, Leprosy and other things we eradicated making a comeback

We need to screen people
