Several Christian churches in Canada, working directly with the Canadian government, have struck a deal with the Israeli government to take thousands of African invaders in the Jewish ethnostate rather than let them be deported back to Africa, it has emerged.
The “deal” struck between the three parties will see all the Africans who have either applied for “asylum” in Canada, or who are officially being sponsored for immigration to that country by the Christian groups in Canada, have their deportations from Israel halted while their applications are “processed.”
A report in the Toronto Star revealed that “Ottawa has reached a last-minute deal with Israel to suspend the deportation of asylum-seekers who currently are waiting for resettlement to Canada.”
Adam Austen, press secretary for Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, also announced that in fact Canada had already been taking in Africans from Israel, telling the Toronto Star that “as the country that resettles the highest number of African asylum-seekers from Israel, we are in direct contact with the Government of Israel to convey Canada’s concerns about the situation.”
The report went on to quote a spokesman for the government’s Immigration Canada department who “confirmed it has reached an agreement with Israeli authorities to allow the Canada-bound asylum-seekers to remain in the country and not be jailed until their sponsorships are finalized.”
“We ask that sponsors advise the department should any of their applicants be issued deportation or detention notices,” said Faith St. John. “Our office in Tel Aviv has dedicated resources to deal with the applications.”
Italy Tavor, a spokesperson for the Israeli Embassy in Ottawa, said the country recognizes the significance of the current “migration situation” and has allocated dozens of new staff positions to streamline and expedite the asylum determination process.
Jenny Miedema of the Dufferin County’s Compass Community Church, “which is sponsoring 14 African refugees through Tel Aviv, said sending asylum-seekers to third countries” said that the Africans had to come to Canada because sending them to Rwanda means they will be “dropped off at a brand new country, with a brand new language, with no legal status. These countries are no safe haven. By sending them there, it becomes somebody else’s problem.”
Joanne Beach, director of justice and compassion for the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada, which has a sponsorship agreement with Ottawa, said “Canada must do its utmost to expedite the resettlement of refugees.”
“The alliance is still concerned for the welfare of those at risk of deportation in Israel who do not have applications currently in process. We are appealing to churches to consider entering into a sponsorship agreement or partnering with a Canadian Jewish organization to help those at imminent risk of deportation from Israel,” said Beach.
