Domestic Violence As Pathway To Permanent Residence

(Domestic violence is a category all its own apparently)

(Minister of Open Borders, Ahmed Hussan)

(No joke, this really is a path to permanent residence)

(From website http://www.immigration.ca)

(Temporary Residence Permits of 6 months of more make the person eligible for the “open” work permit, or the International Mobility Program, Humanitarian option)

2. Context For This Article

Why even write this? Shouldn’t we show some compassion for people who are in situations of domestic violence?

We should. However, consideration also needs to be shown for the Canadian public. Canada is for Canadians, and they are heavily footing the bill for these various immigration schemes.

The public is repeatedly told that immigration is good for the country. It brings diversity (which is always good), it grows the nation, and that it is overall beneficial. Multiculturalism enriches the nation. Only racists oppose high levels of immigration from highly incompatible groups. (Pardon the sarcasm).

Despite all this, domestic violence among immigrant families is apparently a huge issue. It’s an issue so large that a special program is being launched to grant Temporary Residence Permits to people who claim to suffer domestic violence. And of course, there will be a pathway to Permanent Residence built in.

Canadians can be forgiven for second guessing the wisdom behind such a program.

3. Quotes From Gov’t Website

Benefits of a TRP
You may need a TRP for any of these reasons:
-to escape the abuse of your spouse or partner
-to give you time to decide whether you want to leave Canada or consider other immigration options
-to help make sure you are not separated from your children in Canada while you decide your next steps
-to earn a living without fear of family violence (using a work permit)

If you want to stay in Canada permanently
If you are in a situation of family violence, you may be able to apply for permanent residence based on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds. If you do, make sure you clearly describe your situation of abuse in your application.
.
Be sure to mark the outside envelope with the letters “FV” to help us quickly identify your application.
If you are in a situation of family violence and already have an application in process, you can tell us about it. We’ll consider it in processing your application. Contact the office that has your application, or contact our Client Support Centre at 1-888-242-2100.

How did we get to this point? Is domestic violence so rampant that we now have a special category for giving spouses (and presumably children) a pathway to permanent residence?

4. Free Health Care Available

Health coverage
Suspected victims of family violence who are not covered by a public or private health insurance plan may be eligible for coverage of health-care benefits under the IFHP, per the discretionary authority of the Minister, under IFHP Cabinet-approved policy. Benefits include (for the duration of the TRP)
(a) basic coverage (hospital services, physician care)
(b) supplemental coverage (urgent dental and vision care, mental health counselling)
prescription drug coverage
Note: If the client has already had an immigration medical examination covered under the IFHP, they are not eligible for a second. Also, any individual who has access to provincial or territorial coverage should not be issued IFHP coverage. The IFHP does not cover Canadian citizens, including babies born in Canada to IFHP beneficiaries.

Not sure what to say about these perks, other than there are a lot of Canadians who don’t have access to this sort of health care.

5. Eligibility For Open Work Permits

Work permits
A TRP that is valid for at least 180 days makes the holder eligible to apply for an open work permit. A TRP does not exempt the permit holder from the requirement to apply for a work permit if they wish to work in Canada. A fee-exempt work permit should be offered to the client as an option to ensure they are aware that they are eligible for one. If the victim of family violence wants to apply for a work permit, the application should be processed by the local IRCC office at the same time as the TRP application, due to the urgent nature of this kind of case.

And a lesser known branch of the International Mobility Program is the so-called humanitarian option. Let’s take a look at this portion of it.

Temporary resident permit holders
LMIA exemption code: H82
This exemption applies to persons who have been issued a temporary resident permit (TRP) to allow them to stay in Canada. If the TRP holder will be in Canada for a long period of time (six months or greater), and they have no other means of support (meaning no family support or other means of meeting their needs) they may be issued a work permit.
In the case of permit holders who were refused the application for landing, and who are waiting to become eligible for permanent residence, officers need not be too rigorous in determining whether applicants need to work because they have no other means of support.
The integration of future permanent residents will be assisted by allowing them to work.
An open work permit may be issued that coincides with the validity period of the TRP.

Yes, this is repeated from before. But again, all of this is pathway to permanent residence.

6. From CBC Article On Launch

Beginning July 26, newcomers who are victims of domestic violence can apply for a free temporary resident permit that will give them legal immigration status in Canada. That will include a work permit and health-care coverage. In “urgent” situations of family violence, the government will expedite the process by allowing people to apply for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

The new permit process is open to foreign nationals who haven’t yet landed permanent residence status, and whose status is depending on their abusive spouse or partner.

Obvious question: but why aren’t we screening for potential domestic violence BEFORE letting people into the country? This should absolutely be a top priority.

If people are coming to Canada, but afterwards violence is discovered, should this not be grounds for deportation? Immigration regulations apparently mean nothing if people can enter, and only afterwards let this come out.

7. From Immigration.ca Site On TRP-PR

As of July 26, 2019, newcomers who are victims of family violence can apply for a fee-exempt temporary resident permit to give them legal immigration status in Canada. The status includes a work permit and health care coverage.
IRCC is also expediting the process for those in urgent family violence situations who apply for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
The expedited temporary resident permit process for victims of family violence is only available to foreign nationals in Canada who have not yet obtained their permanent residence and whose status in Canada is dependent on their abusive spouse or partner.
It is not available to foreign nationals outside Canada.

Not available to nationals outside of Canada — yet.

The Canadian public will also be on the hook for health care expenses. Presumably education expenses too, if there are minor children. Sure let’s hand out work visas as well.

Assuming (and let’s be sexist), that it is the Husband/Father who is supposed to be doing the providing. Can the Mother and Children claim domestic violence and immediately apply for a Temporary Residence Permit? Can it later be converted into Permanent Resident status?

8. Potential For Abuse Of Program?

Research by her organization found some shelter providers in Calgary found up to 40 per cent of women seeking help were visible Muslims. Many are new immigrants and refugees and can be socially isolated with few friends and no family in Canada.

From this CBC article in Calgary, it states that up to 40% of domestic violence cases are visible Muslims. 40% of the cases, but at the time their population was what, 3% of Calgary’s general population.

Let’s repost a little math that had been done in an earlier piece.

Let’s do some math: suppose you have a city with 1,000,000 citizens, which would mean 30,000 muslims, and 970,000 non-muslims. Now, suppose there are 1,000 incidents of domestic violence in a year. That means that 400 of those incidents would involve muslims, and 600 would involve non-muslims.

Now, those 30,000 muslims would have been involved in 400 domestic violence incidents, or about 1333 per 100,000 people. The 970,000 non-muslims would have been involved in 600 domestic violence incidents or about 62 per 100,000 people. Comparing the two groups of 1333 and 62 per 100,000, we divide and (1333/62=21.5). We get about a magnitude of 21 or 22.

If these numbers provided by the article are correct, Muslims would be perpetrating domestic violence at a rate of about 20 times (per capita) that of non-Muslims.

Why are we allowing such a violent culture to immigrate and take root in Canada? Clearly they haven’t left their “traditions” behind.

To be fair however, this could also be deception, or “taqiyya” on their part. Lying to infidels is okay as long as it somehow advances the cause of Islam. That also is rampant of the culture.

9. So, What Happens To Abusers?

The Government web pages don’t address the long term future of alleged abusers. One would think a speedy deportation to be appropriate.

To be fair, however, such cases may very well in criminal court. As such, this may not be the best place to make conclusions.

If Trudeau thinks that terrorists should get to keep their new Canadian citizenship (remember Bill C-6), it seems very unlikely that domestic abusers will be deported. Public safety isn’t much of a concern.

10. Why Import Incompatible Cultures?

It is true that domestic violence occurs in Canada. It’s also true that rates of domestic violence are much, MUCH higher in many other parts of the world? Islam is an obvious one, but far from the only one

So why bring the problems here? Why bring very different, and largely incompatible cultures to Canada?

This seems like a case where preventing a problem would be far easier and more effective than finding a solution afterwards.
