Immigration critics call for new immigration minister to address backlogs and Afghan crisis.
Members of Canada’s opposition parties have shared their open letters to Immigration Minister Sean Fraser on how to improve the immigration system.
Jasraj Singh Hallan from the Conservative Party and Jenny Kwan from the New Democratic Party are incumbent shadow ministers for the immigration department. Their job is to hold the government accountable and participate in the Standing Committee on Immigration and Citizenship. The committee is made up of members of different political parties in Canadian Parliament. It oversees Immigration,Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), conducts studies and offers recommendations to create new policies.
Fraser is a member of the Liberal Party, which currently holds minority power in the government.
