Filippo Grandi: Arms-Length Tribunal and Asylum Seekers
filippo grandi: And I think that's important, especially at this time of great politicization, according to CTV. The board has for months been struggling with a rapidly growing caseload, pushing wait times for hearings from weeks to months. You have a body in this country that is insulated, relatively well insulated, from political pressures, Filippo Grandi said in an interview. In June, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen ordered a full review of the arms-length tribunal, and that was even before a surge of asylum seekers at the border placed additional pressure on the board's decision-makers. One idea under consideration is whether the Immigration department itself should take over the refugee determination process. In August, more than 2,300 claims were filed from border crossers, and a further 5,390 were filed in September. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
