I suggest that citizens should expect this type of problem when the government allows people to have easy access into the country. Of course, Canada's problem with lost illegals is a mere flyspeck when compared to the monster mess in the U.S.
OTTAWA -- Canada's border agency has lost track of 41,000 illegal immigrants, and this is "jeopardizing the integrity of Canada's immigration program," Auditor General Sheila Fraser says.
Fraser said in her spring report released yesterday that the Canada Border Services Agency has issued warrants for the deportation of these people, but doesn't have a clue where they are or if they are still in Canada.
"The agency's working inventory contains 22,000 individuals with enforceable removal orders, whose whereabouts are known to the agency. The remaining 41,000 cases are individuals with immigration warrants for removal, whose whereabouts are unknown to the agency," her report states.

and points out that Canada's problem is also the U.S.'s problem since many of Canada's lost aliens disappear into the American abyss.
They are whining about losing 41,000 illegal immigrants? Maybe they should come to SoCal and see what a real problem is. There are about 2 million illegal aliens in LA county alone. About 300,000 are living in converted garages. Damn I wish the US only lost track of 41,000.
