Asylum seekers who show up at Canada's border, including irregular border crossers, are not "jumping the queue" as Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer suggested in Thursday night's Maclean's/Citytv national leaders debate.

In fact, there is no queue.

In response to criticism from Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, who said Scheer acts "as if people are illegals" when they come to Canada as refugees, Scheer said there is nothing compassionate about making people in refugee camps abroad wait longer by processing the claims of people who show up at Canada's border first.
