BIDEN'S BORDER CRISIS: Quebec officials slam NYC for shuttling illegal migrants to Canadian border

Quebec's immigration minister told reporters she was "surprised that such a thing would be offered."

Officials from Quebec have been caught off guard following revelations that illegal migrants are being shuttled to the Canada/US border from New York on taxpayer-funded buses.

The province's immigration minister, Christine Fréchette, said she was "surprised" such a scenario was allowed to play out.

"We are going to check if what is mentioned ... is true," Fréchette told reporters in Montreal, "and if so, I would say I would be surprised that such a thing would be offered."

"There is an overflow of these people in a very short period of time," she said of the recent influx of migrants making their way into Quebec, adding that officials "hadn't planned this increase." 

According to CTV News, Fréchette also mentioned that Canads and the US were in talks to negotiate a modernized Safe Third Country Agreement, which would require refugees to claim asylum in whichever of the two nations they enter first, however she lamented the fact that the policy would only apply to those who enter using marked crossings. 

She called on Ottawa to expand the program to include unofficial crossing such as Roxham Road, saying the recent uptick in migrants arriving on buses from New York "makes the urgency of the situation even more apparent."

During Question Period on Monday, Quebec MP Alexis Brunelle-Duceppe highlighted the absurdity of the situation.

"Tired of the hustle and bustle of the life in the Big Apple?" he began. "The solution for you is the all-inclusive Roxham Package; a free bus will take you to Plattsburgh, where a taxi will be waiting to take you to Roxham, and once you've crossed road, you'll be offered free accommodation, welfare, healthcare, and school for your children!"

"We have to be serious," Brunelle-Duceppe added. "We have a moral duty to welcome asylum seekers, it's a matter of humanity ... but what's happening with Roxham Road is ridiculous. Americans are using this irregular route to absolve themselves of their own responsibility."

The majority of migrants arrive in Le Belle Province via the now infamous Roxham Road crossing about twenty miles north of Plattsburgh, New York. There is no fence separating the Canadian end of the road and the field on the American side, meaning migrants can simply walk into the country, where they will be met by members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and processed.

"Some want to go to Canada, some want to go to warmer states,"  NYC mayor Eric Adams said when pressed on the fact that migrants were fleeing the country with the help of taxpayer-funded buses leaving from his city, "and we are there for them as they continue to move on with their pursuit of this dream."
