The immigrant asked others not to be fooled by the promises of the alleged fraudulent recruiters. «Everything is a lie, please don’t be fooled, they will only take you to Canada to exploit you, to turn you into slaves in the 21st century.»

Canadian authorities in Mexico, who asked to remain anonymous, warned Mexicans not to fall for the fraud. “Like many countries, including Mexico, we offer Complementary Protection for Foreigners or Refuge/Asylum, but in specific and special cases.”

According to EFE, Mexican immigrants fall for the Canadian dream that is promoted on social media. They say that the Canadian government has a high demand for labor and programs that facilitate entry, however there is much fraud.
