Immigration bill concerns bishops, Archbishop Miller

 Immigration Minister Jason Kenney, Asia-Pacific Gateway
Minister Stockwell Day, and Public Safety Minister Vic Toews
Bill C-49 is a federal bill subtitled the Preventing Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada’s Immigration System Act. Archbishop Miller has released a statement outlining his concerns with the proposed legislation, which he says seems to confuse the smuggled men, women and children with the smugglers who are exploiting them.

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has also released a statement critical of the bill.
