A far-right group Atalante Québec put up an anti-immigration poster outside of Montreal’s Olympic Stadium earlier this week.

The group has been putting up the posters around Québec that say “#REMIGRATION” to take a stand against the latest wave of asylum seekers entering the province.

“The Nebula strikes again, but in Montreal, this time and with more than a dozen banners,” wrote Atalante Québec,” in a Facebook post.

Between January 1 and June 30, nearly 6,500 asylum seekers have crossed into Quebec. Earlier this month Montreal’s Olympic Stadium opened as a temporary welcome centre to house the asylum seekers, the majority of them being Haitian.

Many of the asylum seekers fear they would be deported from the US after President Donald Trump threatened to remove their protective status granted to them by Barack Obama following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

The poster has since been taken down from Olympic Stadium.
