FUREY: Illegal border crossers aren’t being quarantined

Why are illegal borders crossers being protected by the government?

Despite assurances by Public Safety Minister Bill Blair that asylum seekers were being quarantined and that there was no threat to public safety, Customs and Immigration Union president Jean-Pierre Fortin said asylum seekers were not being subjected to mandatory quarantine.

So many Canadians are making sacrifices and seeing changes in their daily lives because of COVID-19, why are illegal borders crossers being protected by the government?
