President Donald Trump’s travel ban is making a comeback; MP Tony Clement weighs in on border security

Tony Clement says Canada needs to keep welcoming refugees in light of the U.S. travel ban making a comeback. The Parry Sound – Muskoka MP says the travel ban is an internal U.S. issue for the American government to figure out if it’s legal or not, but says our country welcomes refugees with open arms, and it needs to stay that way.

However, he says his position on border security hasn’t changed.


Clement says the Canadian government has to work with the U.S. to help refugees, but it’s important that anyone looking to come to Canada from war-torn countries applies for official refugee status.

Canada’s Minister of Public Safety, Ralph Goodall, was in Manitoba over the weekend talking to people on the ground about refugees walking across the border, which Clement says is a good sign. While there, Goodall announced another $30,000 will go into border security; however Clement calls that amount paltry. He says a lot more money is needed for the border service agency, to put more personnel on the ground.

Trump’s new travel ban will come into effect on March 16th if the changes are approved, which includes letting green card holders back in the U.S.
