border: The representative in Canada for the UN High Commissioner for refugees says people shouldn't be qualified as illegal, according to CTV. They are irregular arrivals. Some argue they are illegal migrants, while others refer to irregular crossings due to the entries happening away from official border points. They enter irregularly, but there is nothing illegal when you cross an international border to claim asylum. Conservative MPs say the act of crossing the border is illegal -- it's an offence under the Customs Act -- and therefore that's the term they will use. The Immigration and Refugees Protection Act is very clear on the fact that it is applicable also to people who transit through another country, Jean-Nicolas Beuze told MPs on the citizenship committee last July.
