Kenney proposes two-tier asylum process


Immigration Minister Jason Kenney

In a move to pacify conservative critics of the current asylum process, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced a Tory proposal to speed up asylum claims by fast-tracking those applications that are most likely to be denied, and eliminating the option to appeal a denied application by those who are from so-called "safe countries".

In what smacks of a system built to deny claimants the right to a fair hearing, Kenney is claiming this new process will trim the current cycle down from an average of 19-months to just two. Kenny also claims abuse of the current system is the motivation behind this proposal - but critics say that Kenney is using this unsubstantiated position simply as a convenient excuse to push a right wing immigration agenda.
