Sri Lankan Refugee Acceptance Rate Crashed After the Arrival of Boat People!

VANCOUVER:  A month after four hundred and ninety two boats filled with Tamil migrants arrived in Canada, the country’s acceptance of refugee claims from Sri Lanka showed a major crash down in the month of September. The same has been confirmed by a new immigration data.

A lawyer from the Canadian Tamil Congress said that while he is not eager to come out with any conclusions, but this crash in the number could possibly be an acknowledgement to the “hysteria” which is decked with the boat people who come to the nation.

Gary Anandasangaree went on to elaborate that the people who come through seat route have created a kind of uneasiness amongst various groups and people. It is difficult to give reason as to why such drop has been witnessed but hopefully it’s a one time statistics. The system needs to be given a benefit of doubt for once.

General format shows that the acceptance rate shows an increase. The data confirmed that every month, starting from January 2009 to July 2010, the acceptance rate has been on the higher side, more than 80 to 90 per cent.

The exception was seen in the month of August, when the boat people arrived in Canada, giving rise to the sparkling debate on the Canadian refugee system. The same acceptance rate fell down to 75 per cent and went to a drastic 47 per cent in the month of September.

Immigration experts believe that queue jumpers and undocumented workers are not at all accepted in Canada.
