No Return Ticket: CBSA Deportation in Canada
Viewed through the theoretical lens of securitization theory & moral regulation, this thesis examines deportation and detainment in Canada across CBSA jurisdictional regions. Furthermore, this thesis attempted to explain how deportation and detainment trends changed since 2005, and what may be possible causes. Being a descriptive analysis study, this thesis utilizes a documentary research methodology to gather data, while using current literature to explain border security and deportation in Canada—bolstering results from the analysis on deportation and detainment statistics. The findings from the results ultimately provide new insight for CBSA, as well as for future research into the efficacy of operations of CBSA and the status quo on border security. Findings from this thesis show deportation rates, across the majority of CBSA jurisdictional regions, have been steadily declining since 2005. Furthermore, it was found as deportation rates decline, average days detained and detention rates have increased nationally since 2005. Although this thesis was able to answer its research question in part, it was not able to answer any causes of change because of a lack of literature on the topic—which is a gap of knowledge future researchers can address.
