A $400 million dollar class action lawsuit has been filed against the Canadian federal government on behalf of tens of thousands of potential immigrants. The suit alleges that when the Immigration Department changed the criteria for immigration selection, the new, stricter rules unfairly excluded people who had applied before the new criteria were in place. The suit aims to have Immigration Canada use the old criteria for applicants who applied before the new rules, or at a minimum refund the application fees and cover legal costs. The potential plaintiffs in this case could number from 30,000 to 40,000 applicants.

I worked in a warehouse three years ago. I have nothing against immigrants, but of the many coworkers that I had there, many of them were illegal immigrants. They told me that they were getting paid less than minimum wage, as well. This gives Americans, and legal immigrants less opportunities to land steady work. I believe that this needs to stop. There needs to be better monitoring of U.S. borders.
