Experts say Scheer's plan to close border loophole 'doomed to failure' - 2019-10-09
Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer says that, if elected, he would close the loophole in the Safe Third Country Agreement (STCA) that allows people to make refugee claims in Canada even if they enter the country at an unofficial border crossing.
The Conservatives also aren't ruling out creating detention camps at the border to house irregular migrants while their claims are being processed.
Asked directly if detention camps were something a Conservative government would create at the border, the Conservatives said the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act provides criteria for detaining asylum seekers. This leaves the option of creating detention camps at the border open.
