Quebec government to give update on asylum seekers

Numerous recent refugee claimants crossing into Quebec are Haitians who have been living in America for years but now face deportation.

In the United States, the Trump administration is considering ending a program that granted Haitians so-called "temporary protected status" following the massive quake that struck their homeland in 2010.

It was granted after the 2010 natural disaster, but now the Department of Homeland Security considers Haiti to be a safe country.

To accommodate the rising number of people illegally crossing the border from the United States into Canada in order to seek asylum, Montreal has had to set up Olympic Stadium as a temporary shelter.

Asylum seekers are seen here arriving at Montreal's Olympic Stadium last week.

At a Tuesday press conference, the Haitian ministers expressed their thanks "to the Canadian government, the provincial government of Quebec and the mayor of Montreal".

Haitian Foreign Minister Antonio Rodrigue, on a visit to Montreal along with the minister for Haitians living overseas Stephanie Auguste, said that he came to "learn the needs. of the thousands of our compatriots here in Canada".

Montreal's French language school board is also gearing up to start enrolling children in classes by the end of the month.
