Canada to ban immigrants in polygamous, forced marriages
“The intention [of the bill] is very clear,” said Alexander. “We will be enhancing the ability of the immigration system to detect and then to act on cases of polygamy. There are many cases — at least hundreds across the country, maybe even more — of people who have come here with multiple wives without that fact being confirmed in the immigration system and without anything having been done about it, even when it’s detected later.
“We will give ourselves the tools to act. Polygamists are not welcome in this country and, if and when they are found in our immigration system, they will be removed from this country.”
