On January 30, 2017, Jenny Kwan of the Democratic Party of New Democracy (NDP) proposed an emergency debate on “President Trump`s immigration ban and travel from seven countries in the Middle East and North Africa.” [17] During the debate, the NDP called on the government to immediately suspend the safe third country agreement, citing that “Canada can no longer have confidence that the U.S. refugee system offers refuge to those who are persecuted.” [18] Canada`s official opposition party has stated that it will not oppose the suspension of the agreement[19] while the Green Party of Canada has predicted its support for the suspension of the agreement. [20] Under the Safe Third Country Agreement (ATS), refugee claimants arriving under a formal Canada-U.S. agreement can be set up.
