Les musulmanes qui ne maîtrisent pas suffisamment l'anglais pourraient être expulsées du Royaume-Uni, a mis en garde lundi le premier ministre David Cameron, justifiant sa menace par la lutte contre la ségrégation sexuelle.

David Cameron has been accused of stigmatising Muslim women after he announced plans to help them learn English and warned that migrant spouses who fail language tests may have to leave the UK.
Announcing the plans on Monday, the prime minister suggested the language classes for Muslim women could help stop radicalisation.

The federal immigration department has said it will be accepting the same number of applications this year as it did in 2015 from parents and grandparents wanting to join family members in Canada, despite a Liberal election promise to double the intake “immediately.”

La Norvège a annoncé mardi son intention de refouler tous les réfugiés arrivant d’un autre pays de l’espace Schengen, en premier lieu la Suède, affirmant viser une politique d’asile « parmi les plus sévères en Europe ».

Almost three months since the world beheld images of the tiny corpse of drowned Syrian toddler Alan Kurdi, which washed ashore on a Turkish beach, it appears that some of his family members may be en route to a better life in Canada.

Gov. Chris Christie has opposed the entry of any Syrian refugees into New Jersey, but he has no control over the federal resettlement program.

The White House announced changes Monday to the government’s visa-waiver program to try to stop those who have visited conflict zones from easily boarding American-bound commercial flights, a move intended to prevent an attack in the United States similar to the ones that struck Paris. But the new measures — which include potentially higher fines for airlines that fail to verify their passengers’ identities and increased information-sharing between countries — are limited, and White House officials acknowledged that they would need Congress to pass legislation to further tighten controls.

Ecuador announced Thursday that it will begin requiring Cubans to get entry visas beginning Tuesday, seeking to discourage the flow of migrants. Deputy Foreign Minister Xavier Lasso said Ecuador wants to curb the flow of migrants who have been using Ecuador as a transit country to reach other nations

The governments of Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey are all jockeying to be the main source of the 25,000 Syrian refugees to be selected for Canada’s new resettlement program. Close to four million Syrians are currently living in UN refugee camps, informal settlements, on the streets and in crowded apartments in those three countries, straining the resources of each. But Michelle Cameron, Canada’s ambassador to Lebanon, said the eventual breakdown of how many refugees are selected from each of the countries will depend on one thing — who needs resettlement most.

Pour être en mesure d’offrir aux réfugiés syriens plus qu’un simple « sourire », Ottawa rajuste le tir quant à la date d’arrivée et le type de parrainage des quelques 25 000 personnes qu’il compte accueillir. Ainsi, seulement 10 000 réfugiés arriveront avant la fin de l’année. Les 15 000 supplémentaires devraient pouvoir s’établir en sol canadien d’ici la fin du mois de février 2016.
