On Thursday, the Federal Government filed a motion to strike out (throw out) challenge to closing the loophole in the Canada/US Safe 3rd Country Agreement.
Here are the main points:
That is irrelevant. Self-reps are allowed to do their own work, and the Court must give them fair consideration as per the Supreme Court ruling (Pintea v. Johns, 2017)
Sure, protecting the integrity of your borders and immigration systems are not at all a public or private interest.
Obviously not, I just filed the case for fun (sarcasm).
Even if this were true, it would be a huge conflict of interest. Why would a refugee claimant file a challenge to make rules harder for him/herself?
No, letting tens of thousands of illegals in at taxpayer expense is a waste of resources. This is just to stop it.
Immigration is a Federal jurisdiction. The Federal Court has jurisdiction to hear applications for judicial review (when immigration and refugee claims are denied). They should also have the ability to decide what is proper procedure.
That is the point.
Thank you for the head’s up.
Of course, this is an overly simplified response. The real one will be coming soon enough.
