Why can an illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet appeal his deportation order and stay in Canada until it is heard? Appeals can take up to five years to be finally resolved. Enhanced border control and apprehension of illegals are only partial solutions to curbing illegal immigration. The End of the Line brings into perspective the bureaucratic machinery that is the immigration system and the level of frustration of the officers who must enforce policies and tackle conflicting priorities created by their political masters. The Program also examines the apprehension of failed refugee claimants and visa overstays who often go underground while continuing to receive social benefits. (An estimated 100,000 illegal immigrants live underground in Toronto alone). The film also examines the problem of illegals who make bogus applications for political asylum to avoid deportation, and the apprehension and removal of war criminals.
