Skip to comments.New Quebec law stresses migrants' skills, thousands must reapply
Posted on 06/17/2019 6:24:43 AM PDT by yesthatjallen
The Quebec provincial legislature on Sunday approved a controversial immigration bill that will replace a first-come, first-served standard for accepting migrants with one tied to an applicants' skills.
The law is similar to a proposed plan from US President Donald Trump that would shift his country's visa system from family-based immigration towards bringing in more skilled workers.
The law will attempt to more closely match the skills offered by would-be immigrants with the needs of the labor market in Quebec, Canada's second most-populous province.
Under the new law, some 18,000 applications now on file will be shredded, affecting as many as 50,000 people, many of whom already live in the province.
The 18,000 existing applicants will have to restart the immigration process.
The provincial government promised to expedite processing of their new applications, saying qualified workers would have answers within six months rather than the current 36 months.

Geez, even Canuckistan gets it.
Canada also recognizes birth tourism, which means that if somebody comes into their country to have a baby they leave after the baby is born with the baby.
I think the US has had that discussion in the past and the jus soli is the misinterpreted reasoning behind why we do not, or will not, or cannot (depending on who’s in charge) perform a similar service or rendering of law.
I can only imagine the turmoil that would cause and the activist protest and in-your-face social justice that would occur if the US were to even think about doing something such as what Canada has passed into law.
But perhaps the Times Are A-Changin and the Winds of law will once again be prevailing in favor of a true constitutional republic.
Reapply? In the U.S that would be unscrambling the egg.
Is there a checkbox for IED assembly?
Sounds like some of Trudeau’s Pet Muslims will be going home ,LOL, or moving to another Province ,ouch
Quebec is different from the rest of Canada, It’s the French Canada,
Original intent of the 14th Amendment
Senator Jacob Howard (served on the Senate Joint Committee on Reconstruction, which drafted the 14th) clearly spelled out the intent of the 14th Amendment by stating:
"Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country."
Sen. Lyman Trumbull, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, author of the Thirteenth Amendment, and the one who inserted the phrase (All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the States wherein they reside):
[T]he provision is, that 'all persons born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens.' That means 'subject to the complete jurisdiction thereof.' What do we mean by 'complete jurisdiction thereof?' Not owing allegiance to anybody else. That is what it means.
Sen. W. Williams:
I understand the words here, 'subject to the jurisdiction of the United States,' to mean fully and completely subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.
Senator Jacob Howard states the intent of the Fourteenth Amendment published in the Congressional Record May 30, 1866.
We have, at a minimum, 3 different Senators who were involved in drafting the 14th Amendment, stating on record in Congress that subject to the jurisdiction can not, does not, apply to foreigners or aliens (even if here legally).
The only thing missing for correcting the wrong introduced in the 1960's, is political will. We must do the right thing, and return to original intent of the 14th!.
This is not national, it’s one province. It’s like saying that a law passed in New York state is national.
Quebec has ~8 million people. Canada has about ~37 million.
Don’t libs want to be more like Canada?
