Prof. Audrey MacklinOn CBC Radio's program The Sunday Edition, host Michael Enright conducted an extensive interview with Prof. Audrey Macklin, Chair in Human Rights, regarding perceptions about the issue of immigration and asylum-seekers in Canada.

Macklin emphasizes the fact that when people seek asylum from persecution, Canada has a duty to honour its legal obligations under international law. "We promised that if people reach our borders, and they ask for refugee protection, we will determine if they're a refugee," she says. "If they meet it then they will not be returned. So they are not doing anything wrong."
