NCA Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Policy Statement

Introduction

The National Citizens Alliance believes that we must balance the needs of the country with the obligations and responsibilities to accept refugees and immigrants seeking a better, safer life and opportunities without overwhelming our resources and/or undermining our culture, values and security. Canada must remain Canada and not submit to the globalist social engineering that we see playing out across Europe.

Migrants aspiring to come to Canada may do so through several immigration streams in place and administered by the federal government, and through some programs under provincial governments. The current policies, programs and regulations are in place under the provisions of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) 2002.

The National Citizens Alliance (NCA) believes that Canada’s immigration, refugees, and citizenship policy must aim to achieve five broad objectives:

● National Security – preventing the entry of persons who pose a security threat to Canada

● Cultural Security – preventing the entry of persons who pose a culture threat to Canada

● Economic – attracting migrants that fill a long term void in the labour market

● Humanitarianism – valuing families so immediate members remain together, and meeting Canada’s international humanitarian obligations in relation to refugees and asylum seekers

● Citizenship – upholding the belief that citizenship is a privilege rather than a right

We believe that it is possible to achieve an equitable balance in relation to these five broad objectives in immigration.

In addition, the NCA believes that Canada’s immigration policy must be guided by fairness and equality. Immigrants and refugees must be judged based on who they are including what they believe and value, and not the colour of their skin, ethnicity, religion, or homeland, within the limits of maintaining Canadian cultural integrity and ensuring the well-being and safety of Canadians comes first.

National Security

Immigration policy has implications on national security, because keeping Canadians safe requires discriminating between persons who pose a threat to Canada and those who do not.

The NCA believes in:

● Denying entry to our country individuals who have a reasonable potential to commit acts of terrorism and/or undermine the values that distinguish us as a free and democratic society

● Ensuring that systems of due process are in place for individuals charged with violations of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, individuals whose regular systematic processing under prevailing policies and regulations is not possible, and individuals whose circumstances require irregular processing

● Amending the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (2001) to the effect that undocumented, illegal migrants will be deported immediately to their country of origin, distinguishing radicalized families from non-radicalized families, and application of the NCA integration and screening protocols for new comers to Canada

● Amending the Safe Third Country Agreement to effect that illegal migrants in transit through the USA to Canada and who arrive in Canada illegally will face deportation immediately to their country of origin, denial of entry to deported applicants from the United States of America, and distinguishing radicalized residents  from non-radicalized residents

● Implementing a moratorium on sanctuary cities in Canada to gather all relevant facts and with the intent to shut them down

● Deporting individuals charged and convicted under the Criminal Code upon the completion of their prison sentence; if no prison sentence, then the individual will be deported immediately

● Refusing entry to any individual previously deported due to criminal convictions

● Deporting individuals failing to appear at their immigration hearings

● Affording one appeal to individuals within 90 days of the initial ruling as part of due process

● Maintaining the constitutional requirements for citizenship, and rejecting any measures that expand citizenship (without right to vote) to foreign investors and/or a global passport; Canadian sovereignty must and shall prevail over globalist agendas

● Dedicating innovative and more efficient methods to monitor employers’ compliance with immigration and refugee regulations derived from policies and set out in programs, in order to protect Canadians and the integrity of the immigration and refugee system

● Enforcing immigration and refugee regulations derived from policies and set out in programs by way of investigating and levying penalties where necessary on individuals, organizations, and employers party to non-compliance with immigration regulations

● Restricting or suspending indefinitely immigration rights to individuals from nations prone to terrorism activities, and/or have values and beliefs that are diametrically opposed to our own values and beliefs and/or unable to provide credible security clearances for applicants, while allowing political asylum applicants from these nations

● Restricting or suspending indefinitely immigration rights to individuals from nations that fail to accept individuals deported back to them, while allowing political asylum applicants from these nations

● Applying comprehensive screening for all applicants wanting to come to Canada, including the vetting of an applicants’ ideological beliefs and values that are counter to the standards of our civil rights and liberties; ideological screening would be applied to applicants before entering Canada to avoid Charter issue; in addition, we will push to amend the Charter to allow ideological screening of all in-Canada applicants as well (see our Constitutional Amendments policy statement for more information)

● Rejecting applicants who we do not have enough information on to conduct a reasonable assessment of their security status and ability to integrate

● Banning the foreign funding of mosques in Canada

Cultural Security


Immigration policy has implications on cultural security, because the people who are allowed to enter Canada will have an impact for better or worse upon Canadian culture.

The NCA supports:

● Screening newcomers before entering Canada based upon a willingness to embrace Canada’s distinct traditional identities, heritages, and cultural norms

● Creating a support network for newcomers who have a genuine interest in integration that goes against their traditional homeland culture and religious norms

● Requiring applicants who cannot immediately integrate into our economic, social and cultural norms to have Canadian citizens who sponsor them and who will be accountable for their actions while in Canada for 2 years; screening sponsors for a political agenda that seeks to recruit news arrivals for socioeconomic activism and the level of their own integration into Canada

● Rejecting applicants who we do not have enough information on to conduct a reasonable assessment of their security status and ability to integrate

● Denying entry to our country individuals who have a reasonable potential to commit acts of terrorism and/or undermine the values that distinguish us as a free and democratic society

● Applying comprehensive screening for all applicants wanting to come to Canada, including the vetting of an applicants’ ideological beliefs and values that are counter to the standards of our civil rights and liberties

● Restricting or suspending indefinitely immigration rights to individuals from nations prone to terrorism activities, and/or those who have values and beliefs that are diametrically opposed to our own values and beliefs

● Disallowing individuals from entering the country who wear facial coverings and/or have a child wife; whilst the NCA Constitutional Amendment policy to the Canadian Charter, Section 2 (a). The National Citizens Alliance does not support religious, ideological, or way of life extremism, radicalization that violates fundamentally a free and democratic society

● Prohibiting people from wearing the burqa and niqab in public spaces, (which at minimum are symbols of oppression of women; there are limits to our freedoms when they violate our civil rights); whilst the NCA Constitutional Amendment policy to the Canadian Charter 2 (a)

● Deporting new arrivals who fail over a reasonable amount of time to integrate into our traditional economic, social, and cultural norms; establish a program that will check in on new arrivals who have been sponsored to assess their ability to integrate

Economic

The world population is on track to reach approximately 10 billion by 2050, and lifespans of populations have been increasing since the 1800s. The population is putting increased burden on resources and contributing to climate change. There is a correlation between population size, GDP growth, and climate change. In contrast, Canada’s population of approximately 36 million is relatively small compared to the land mass of Canada. This relatively low population is partly explained by the extremity of weather in northern regions, and negative a total fertility replacement rate of around 1.6%. With Canada’s welfare system with many costly benefits, it is important that new comers fill a void in the economy, otherwise they will become a drain on the welfare system. In addition, it is important that we address the negative total fertility replacement rate in order to not be reliant on immigrants in order to sustain or grow the national population.

In addition, the National Citizens Alliance is concerned at immigration being used to grow the voter base of the ruling party and at the expense of the Canadian people. Therefore, our party will only allow economic migrants to come to Canada if there is a long term void in the labour market that the Canadian people for whatever reason are unable to fill. Further, our refugee intake will be based upon putting the safety and well-being of the Canadian people first.

The NCA supports:

● Conducting a thorough independent review of the Canada’s negative total fertility replacement rate, which includes recommendations as to how to encourage a positive total fertility rate of 2.1% or higher

● With the exception of refugees, denying entry into Canada any immigrant applicant who is sick or dealing with significant health issues

● Provide new additional tax incentives for natural born Canadian families (at least one parent is a fourth generation Canadian) for each child they have; long-time welfare recipients are not eligible to receive these incentives

● Reduce total immigration into Canada to a maximum 50,000 or less

● Facilitating the entry of migrants with the educational qualifications, experience, and linguistic skills most relevant and complementary to the present and expected quantitative as well as qualitative needs of the labour market if additional population is necessary

● Adjusting the intake of migrants under the Federal Skilled Worker category and changes to the minimum points threshold according to

o The performance of the overall labour market

o The specific quantitative and qualitative characteristic conditions of occupations in industries across sectors of the economy

● Denying any form of welfare or social assistance to newcomers for a minimum of 5 years as a resident of Canada

● Dismantling the temporary foreign workers program (TFW) and replace with greater investment in retraining of Canadian workers

● Denying work permits to visitors with reasonable exceptions such as singers, musicians, and athletes

● Establishing official language proficiency as a basis for immigration approval

● Requiring permanent residents and any other non-citizens to reside in Canada for a minimum of 10 years before being allowed to apply for citizenship

● Deporting immediately any non-citizen who commits a criminal offense with no exceptions

● Funding mandatory civics classes as a condition for permanent residency approval, in order to advise applicants of Canada’s culture, democratic institutions, as well as our economic and political systems, and to advise them of the responsibilities and the rights they are entitled to as permanent residents and as citizens if they wish to become Canadians

Humanitarianism

Immigration policy must treat people humanely without violating basic human rights. In addition, the policy must recognize the UN’s 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol. The NCA believes that these steps are paramount to a civilized Canadian society within the limit of ensuring that the well-being and safety of Canadians comes first, and maintaining cultural and national security.

The NCA supports:

● Decreasing the processing times for international adoptions

● Instituting a centre-of-gravity concept in relation to family reunification and keeping families together, wherein permanent residents or citizens may sponsor immediate members still outside the country if the members in Canada constitute the majority of the family (centre of gravity) and those outside would otherwise be left with no other family

● Recognizing only one wife per applicant

● Issuing overseas partners of Canadians and permanent residents with 2-year provisional residency while immigration officials investigate the bona fides of applicant couples

● Prioritizing refugees where applicable like the genocide against Christians and Yazidis in the Middle East and South African farmers, and in consideration of the four broad immigration objectives

● Ensuring that new refugee totals are consistent with the cultural integrity of Canada’s traditional and dominant cultures

● Allowing an individual who has been granted refugee status to apply for immediate permanent residency status for a legitimate spouse and their dependent children aged 18 or under, and with regards to the centre-of-gravity principle

● Reducing the initial immigrant application process to no more than 2 years from receipt of the application

● Responding in a reasonable time to refugee crises while ensuring the well-being and safety of the Canadian people comes first

● Adding flexibility to the number of refugees allowed into Canada based on the severity of humanitarian crises while ensuring the well-being and safety of the Canadian people comes first

● Denying entry to our country refugees who have a reasonable potential to commit acts of terrorism and/or undermine the values that distinguish us as a free and democratic society

● Applying comprehensive screening for all applicants wanting to come to Canada, including the vetting of potential migrants for ideological beliefs counter to the standards of our civil rights and liberties

Citizenship

The National Citizens Alliance believes that citizenship is a privilege rather than a right. In addition, we believe that citizenship should be administered in the best interests of the Canadian people, and never for political purposes such as attaining votes.

The NCA supports:

● Amending Bill C-6 in following key areas:

– Require permanent residents to reside in Canada for a minimum 10 year period within a 12 year time frame before being eligible to apply for citizenship

– Strip the citizenship of Canadians, whether dual citizen or non-dual citizen, who have been convicted of terrorism. In the case of dual citizens, they would be deported back to their other country, and in the case, of non-dual citizens, their immigrant status would be downgraded from citizen to alien occupant.

● Amending birthright citizenship to the affect that newcomers who give birth while in Canada are denied citizenship to their newborns

● Re-instituting the declared intent to reside in Canada once granted citizenship and with no more than 1 year outside the country in the first 5 years after receiving citizenship

● Requiring new citizens to reside in Canada at least four years of the first five years of their citizenship or have their citizenship revoked

● Taking a serious look at the rules for citizenship with emphasis on upholding the well-being and safety of the Canadian people

Conclusion

The National Citizens Alliance will work with any party willing to achieve a mutually agreeable balance in relation to the objectives in immigration, refugees, and citizenship policy, on the condition that there is no compromise in the party’s values and principles of putting the Canadian people first.
