That's not what 'illegal' means

Posted By on Tue, Oct 16, 2018 at 5:25 PM

Guess what? If somebody has successfully filed an application with Immigration Canada—whether it's an application for permanent residence, refugee status, a work visa, or citizenship—they are not here 'illegally' or doing anything 'illegal' by being here. They are going through or have gone through the legitimate legal channels they're supposed to go through to be here lawfully, you fucking moron.
I literally had you rant to me about how "illegals were getting free healthcare"...wait for it...from Immigration Canada. When I said they would have to have an approved status to get any government funded healthcare, you insisted: "Nope they were illegals." Yes, a federal government department just has a bunch of people remaining in the country illegally on roaster they're funding free healthcare to.
Just admit you do not like immigrants...
