The media love to portray Canada as a country that welcomes all immigrants and gives them an opportunity to succeed. The truth, however, is that as many as 500,000 live and work without "legal" status in Canada, meaning that they are subjected to even more abuse and exploitation than other workers. In addition to this, they are under constant threat of being arrested and deported, such as with the Conservatives' recent raids.
