Many in our community are concerned with the situation facing African asylum-seekers in Israel. As Canadians, we can make a difference by encouraging the Government of Canada to continue playing a constructive role.
Over the last number of years, tens of thousands of African asylum-seekers have come to Israel as the first safe country they could reach.
This issue shouldn't fall on Israel's shoulders alone. It is a global challenge requiring a global solution.
Canada has taken a lead in sharing international responsibility to help these asylum-seekers, by aiming to resettle thousands in Canada. This reflects the close partnership between Canada and Israel.
But there is an urgent need to expand the capacity of the Canadian mission in Israel to process asylum-seekers. This would reduce the backlog and allow more of them to resettle in Canada.
There are many groups in Canada ready on the ground to help with resettlement. All that is required is action from the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.
We need your help! Email Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship. Encourage the government to take action to ensure more of these asylum-seekers can come to Canada. We'll send a copy of your message to your local MP.
