Immigration lawyer says Canada mustn't become equivalent of a Kardashian sister

Kourtney & Kim Take Miami - Season: 1A top immigration lawyer has said she hopes Canada doesn’t end up like a Kardashian sister.

Toronto-based Jennifer Nees was talking in regards to the reality TV crews filming immigration raids for the purpose of screening on Border Security: Canada’s Front Line.

She believes that the show feeds “that xenophobic, anti-immigrant attitude you read in the comments section of any online news article about immigration.

“The raid that occurred, and was caught on video, affected real people who have real lives in Canada. Yes, some of them were illegal and in catching those individuals who are admittedly breaking the law, I suppose some type of justice is being served. But to televise it and possibly expose the identity and location of refugee applicants seems a step too far.”

Nees stresses that Canada cannot become the national equivalent to reality show queens the Kardashian sisters.
