Refugees Waiting

The number of people on the waiting list for refugee status has tripled since the Tories have come to power. Even though they say that these backlogs create doors for illegal refugees to enter, the Conservatives have done nothing about it. When will Stephen Harper stop this hypocrisy.
The wait times have increased despite the government's criticism that delays open the door for so-called bogus refugees to stay in the country.
When the Conservatives came to power in January 2006, the backlog of people waiting for their claims to be heard by members of the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) was slightly less than 20,000. Since then, the number of people on the waiting list has grown to 62,000.
