Muslim Migrant Who Murdered 13-Year-Old Girl Came To Canada Sponsored By A Church Group

From the Vancouver Sun:
Accused killer Ibrahim Ali lived with his family in the shadow of the leafy Burnaby park where the body of young Marrisa Shen was found in July, 2017 — close enough that family members might have passed by the small memorial that reminded the public her killer was still at large.

Boyd said, “We can’t predict with unfailing accuracy who will or will not commit crime, all we can say about immigration is that people who come to Canada as immigrants have lower crime rates than native-born Canadians.”…
