Trump's travel ban could boost refugee claims in Canada

Canada could see a spike in refugee claims at the border after U.S. President Donald Trump’s travel ban took effect, Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman tells the CBC.

Before completing its term late last month, the U.S. Supreme Court authorized a limited version of his 120-day ban on all refugees.

"We've had a flow of people from the U.S. and other places of the world coming," Seligman, principal of immigration law boutique Seligman Professional Corporation, says in the article. "The impact we may feel will be people showing up at our borders making refugee claims."
