Freakin Trudeau wants to bring 25k Syrian refugees in 6 weeks and convince Canadians that they are properly screened. And also airlift them while giving them free dental and vision, something the taxpayers don't get.
Also, why is Saudi Arabia (one country who was directly responsible for this mess) still not taking in any refugees when a lot of refugees share common way of life with the Saudis?
Most refugees will go through a triple dip process of research and investigation into their backgrounds of who they are ( passport details, DNA, fingerprints, etc) which can take between 18 - 24 months.
Depending on that persons abilities ( ie if they're a healthy adult), they will stay in a glorified camp/detention centre. They can apply for asylum which takes years and during this process they can live in the local communities but cannot work so they live of a small amount of government benefits.
If their asylum process is accepted they can then work, study and live in that particular country before applying for citizenship after a certain amount of years ( on average it's between 4-7 years).
During both processes they will be under constant surveillance by the immigration department, police and government. They will have regular interviews and meetings with relevant agencies.
The fact that people believe these refugees aren't checked and just chucked into the country on a cash bed of benefits is not surprising considering people's ignorance and believing the right wing medias agenda.
The reason Saudi Arabia doesn't hold refugees (they have just paid over a billion dollars instead), is most likely due to its political and economical unwilling from its monarchy.
Saudi Arabia is a terrorist hotspot which funds, trains and recruits terrorists on multi-level agencies. There is some evidence to suggest that it is government funded but it seems mainly independent and private organisations funding these terrorists.
There is evidence to suggest Al-Queada, ISIS, Boko Haram etc have all trained and been funded by Saudis. Famously the 9/11 hijackers were all Arabians, funded by Saudi organisations and trained in Afghanistan.
The reason no-one does anything? It's a major ally in the Middle East and has an extoronaite amount of oil.
