CANADA'S CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION MINISTER, JASON KENNEDY'S COMMENT: "I PLEAD GUILTY. I AM A RACIST".
"I plead guilty. I am a racist". That was the response of Canadian Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Jason Kennedy, when he was asked about his role, in changing Canada's immigration policies to fit a more racist agenda. It was an "off-color comment", against a reporter's question to him, that has nevertheless, resounded negatively, with all those who has heard it and it has also, as expected, reverberated back unto the speaker, who is the Minister in this case. The Immigration and Citizenship Minister, Jason Kennedy, is also most frequently referred to, as the "Minister of Citizenship and Deportation", because of his unprecedented approach, to launch an attack, through his new immigration policies, against those who has also sought, legitimately, to seek a home in Canada. And especially in those cases, involving refugee claimants and the refugee system, which is also protected under international human rights laws. In his zeal to rid Canada of those "undesirable", who also do not fit his own personal view, of what Canada should also look like, he has also been directly involved, in implementing, those new policies, that has also fit that agenda. He has also enforced a close door policy, to all people of third world countries, including Africa, as well as those from Iraq, Palestine and South America. And unlike some of his predecessors, whose more lenient and somewhat open door policies, to some of those countries, the current Immigration and Citizenship Minister, Jason Kennedy, is not so kind. He has also let his racist views be known, on several issues, such as lifting the moratorium, on deportations to such countries, as Burundi, Rwanda, Liberia and others, and also cutting funding for some agencies, whose policies, he also did not agree with, because of those issues, surrounding the Israeli government and Palestinian situation in Gaza, and also excluding other genuine refugees, from applying or even to remain in Canada, due to those measures that he has also taken, to prevent a fair or unbiased processing of refugee applicants, who are also targeted, based on their country of origin, and some of whom are also directly affected, by his racist immigration policies. Other concerns, in regards to Jason Kennedy's new policies, has also included, his racist treatment of migrant workers, in Canada. Those new and openly racist policies, were also implemented during his term, as the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. Other issues, concerning Canada's domestic and international foreign policies, has also been negatively affected, by Jason Kennedy's actions as well. It was also Jason Kennedy, who has also taken steps, to openly express the attitude of the Canadian government, in regards to Canada's relationship, with the oppressive Israeli government, by taking actions to prevent anyone who disagreed with those policies, to be reprimanded by the Canadian government and in such a way, that has also further exposed, both his own personal bias and the racism of the Canadian government, around that issue, and to implement new policies, that would also put those ideas, further into place. It was the Immigration and Citizenship Minister, Jason Kennedy's impervious views, on those same issues, that were also used, to effectively bar anyone, including the British M.P, George Galloway, from entering Canada, based on those grounds. The new changes that were also made to Canada's immigration policy, under the present Immigration and Citizenship Minister, Jason Kennedy, has also severely impeded upon the ability of others, living in Canada, such as landed immigrants and refugee claimants, from ever having any legal advantage, as far as the new measures that were also put in place, that has also ensured that their rights, were also diminished, under the current policy. His ministry is also full of corruption, in general, with some members of his cabinet, who were also convicted of crimes against the public, in some highly publicized cases. Those charges has also included bribery and sexual misconduct on their part. Canada's Immigration Minister, Jason Kennedy, is also a self acknowledged racist. The question that is also being asked by everyone, is, can the Canadian government afford to have an openly racist minister, who has also admitted to such behaviour? Several groups, currently, and also Canadian, who are not happy with his actions, are also calling for his resignation.
