OTTAWA — An Ottawa man says he will appeal after losing a round in his court battle for Canadian citizenship.

Deepan Budlakoti was suddenly told by federal officials four years ago that he is not a citizen — even though he was born in Canada and had been issued a birth certificate and a Canadian passport.

The government argues Budlakoti did not automatically become a Canadian at birth in October 1989, as his parents were employed by a foreign diplomat, the Indian high commissioner.

Budlakoti, 24, was ordered out of Canada three years ago due to drug and firearms convictions. He unsuccessfully tried to challenge the order in court.

In December 2012 he completed his sentence and was released into custody of the Canada Border Services Agency. Continue reading

LASALLE, QC.: Family from Cameroon fears FGM if deported

Fearing female circumcision, Lasalle family fights deportation

Billy ShieldsBy Reporter

LASALLE – Hilary Fuh-Cham’s father was known as a “sub-chief” in his native village of Cameroon, a tiny place about 20 km outside the town of Bamenda, in the eastern part of the country.

But when his father died, his world turned upside down, triggering a series of events that left him,  his wife and three children in Canada fighting off deportation.

“The only time I said that I could not continue was when they told me my wife and my daughter would have to be circumcised,” he told Global News.

Fuh-Cham converted to Roman Catholicism when he was still quite young, but his father remained wed to indigenous beliefs.

When Fuh-Cham had to take up the role of sub-chief after his father’s death, it meant the women in his family had to undergo circumcisions and other practices they staunchly opposed, he said.

In December 2007, they arrived in Canada with their daughter in an attempt to gain refugee status.

“My main fear was losing my life,” said Yvette Fuh-Cham.

“I remember seeing my sister-in-law circumcised, the pain she had to go through. Just believing that’s going to be done to you, you have to leave, you have to hide.”

Their cause is being taken up by the Saint Jean Brebeuf parish in Lasalle.

“To my mind it’s like persecuted by the government, the federal government,” said Father Gerry Martineau, the pastor of the church.

“A lot of people will be extremely sad, his presence is felt. He’s very integrated into our community.”

The Fuh-Chams say they’ve attempted on three occasions to obtain the right to stay in the country either on refugee or humanitarian grounds, but have yet to get a result that keeps them in Canada – even though two of their children were born in Canada and have never been to Cameroon.

They say they have a little more than a month before they’ll be deported.

Dutch Jacobus Marinus van Nierop to be deported to face criminal charges in France

September 5, 2014 1:02 pm

Fugitive Dutch dentist, wanted for mutilating patients, ordered held

By Staff  The Canadian Press

MONTREAL – A Dutch dentist arrested this week in New Brunswick and wanted in France for allegedly mutilating patients through botched procedures will remain detained pending his removal from Canada.

Jacobus Marinus van Nierop had a detention review before the Immigration and Refugee Board Friday via teleconference.

(…)

The Canada Border Services Agency says it is making plans to return van Nierop to his native Holland, but that could change if French authorities demand he be returned to that country to face criminal charges.

(…)

In a strange twist, van Nierop told the hearing he thought he was being held in connection with the murder of his wife in the Netherlands in 2006.

Domestic violence acceptable reason to keep Mexican woman in Canada

Mexican woman in Montreal facing deportation to remain in Canada

CBCCBC – Sun, 24 Aug, 2014

(…)

Citizenship and Immigration Canada has stayed Sheila Sedinger Ayala’s removal order.

“It feels amazing,” Sedinger Ayala told CBC news. “Now I can concentrate on celebrating my daughter’s birthday which is this Saturday, the day I was going to be deported.”

Sedinger Ayala, 27, was initially ordered to be deported back to Mexico after her refugee claim sponsor  — her husband — was convicted of a criminal offence.

Her two Canadian-born children would  have stayed behind in Canada if the deportation went ahead.

(…)

The decision comes one day after an immigrant rights group hosted a news conference for Sedinger Ayala on Sunday.

With her fiancé by her side, Sedinger Ayala sobbed while she explained what had happened to her and why she should be granted temporary residency to allow her to stay in Canada while she sorts out her affairs.

Sedinger Ayala said she moved to Montreal from Mexico City in 2005, fleeing from a violent ex-boyfriend.

She had one child within a year of arriving in Canada — a product of gang rape while in Mexico, said Sedinger Ayala’s lawyer Angela Potvin.

She later met and married a man in Montreal with whom she had another child. She said he sponsored her bid for permanent residency and in 2008, the federal and provincial governments accepted her sponsorship application.

However, Potvin said the sponsor was found guilty of physical assault during the course of Sedinger Ayala’s sponsorship application, which in turn made him ineligible to sponsor her. She said the conviction cancelled her permanent residency bid.

Filipino nanny faces deportation for working illegally

Nanny caught up in immigration backlog faces deportation

Ottawa says caregiver is inadmissible because she briefly worked under the table while waiting for an open work permit.

By:  Immigration reporter, Published on Tue Aug 19 2014

A Filipino nanny is facing deportation from Canada after she was found guilty of “misrepresentation” because she briefly worked under the table while waiting for an open work permit amid an immigration backlog.

Canada Border Services Agency has refused to defer Lilia Ordinario Joaquin’s removal on Friday. Her lawyer filed an emergency application Tuesday asking the federal court to review the CBSA decision and stop the deportation.

“I’d say ‘the fix was in’ for Lilia. She fulfilled all the requirements of the live-in caregiver program but was caught by an extraordinarily long period of delay in receiving her open work permit from the government,” said the woman’s lawyer, Jennifer Stone, of the Neighbourhood Legal Services.

MONTREAL: 78-old Julia Hidalgo-Aguilera wants to keep her to-be-deported son in Canada as primary caregiver

Ailing Montreal mother pleads for delay in son’s deportation

Mother and son plead for immigration leniencyHector Reyes-Hidalgo came to Canada four years ago to care for his ailing mother, Julia Hidalgo-Aguilera, who has ALS. But Hector is facing deportation to his native Chile if Immigration Canada doesn’t grant him a reprieve.

It’s a desperate plea to Immigration Canada from a woman dying of ALS and her son.

Julia Hidalgo-Aguilera, 78, has lost most of the use of her legs and says her arms are growing weaker.

Her son Hector Reyes-Hidalgo came from Chile four years ago to care for her.

He’s her only family member in Canada and her primary caregiver, but he is set to be deported back to his home country Tuesday.

They’re making an appeal on compassionate grounds to delay his deportation next week.

Even the most basic tasks are almost impossible for Hidalgo-Aguilera — she has difficulty swallowing, moving and sometimes breathing.

Immigration Canada accepted a request for Hidalgo-Aguilera to sponsor her son’s immigration, but Reyes-Hidalgo was rejected in his bid to obtain a Quebec Selection Certificate, which he needs if he wants to live in Quebec.

So next week, he faces deportation.

“I’m thinking of my mother more than of me. I’m hoping for a solution soon,” he said.

Reyes-Hidalgo can contest Immigration Quebec’s decision in October, but without a stay of deportation from Immigration Canada, he won’t have a chance to plead his case.

That could prove to be devastating for his mother physically, emotionally and financially.

“I help pay the rent and pay a lot of things to maintain the house,” he said.

Letters of support have been written by doctors and politicians, including the leader of the official opposition Thomas Mulcair.

Hungarian Roma human traffickers deported from Canada

The federal government has announced that 20 members of a large human trafficking ring based out of Hamilton, Ont. have been deported from Canada.

The 20 deported individuals were members of the Domotor-Kolompar ring and helped run the largest proven human trafficking ring in Canada, according to the statement put out by the border agency. As of Tuesday, at least 22 members of this ring have been convicted on human trafficking charges, the BSA has confirmed. All but two were deported.

The Domotor-Kolompar family brought Hungarians from their hometown to Canada with the promise of work and a better life in the Hamilton area, Canadian officials said. But the Hungarians who came over were subjected to brutal living conditions without adequate food and forced to work construction jobs for free. The human traffickers used intimidation and threats of violence to keep their victims in line, officials said.

“This flagrant abuse of persons in our immigration system demanded a strong response,” Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said in a news conference Tuesday. Continue reading

Maclean’s investigates how a repeat felon, ordered deported 10 years ago, managed to stay in Canada

Michael Friscolanti

When emergency crews rushed through the front door that winter night—Jan. 21, 2014—they found white tiles covered in blood and two people clinging to life. It was a gruesome, chaotic scene, even for a seasoned paramedic. Whoever swung the blade, again and again, had already fled.

Anita Summan, who owned the home in Brampton, Ont., was lying at the bottom of the main wooden staircase, alert but fading. Summan’s daughter, in her bedroom when the assailant pounced, had sprinted to her side. “She was still alive,” says Sonali Summan, 22. “I was in a hysterical shock, trying to figure out what was going on.” Continue reading

Immigration rejects Mohammed Abdalmajid’s claim for refugee status

A family remains apart, waiting on Immigration to reunite them

By Hugh Adami, Ottawa Citizen May 31, 2013

Lamees Abdalmajid, who is the daughter of Mohammed Abdalmajid. He was deported last Jan. She really misses her dad. She’s almost three and won’t see him for father’s day.

OTTAWA — A really stupid thing happened on Jan. 11, the day after The Public Citizen recounted the story of Mohammed Abdalmajid, a husband and father who was deported last October to the West Bank.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada sent Abdalmajid a letter, through his Ottawa immigration lawyer, requesting he appear for an interview on Jan. 25 regarding his wife’s application to sponsor him as a permanent resident. Saly Rasheed submitted the application early last summer after Immigration rejected her husband’s claim for refugee status.

Immigration should have used someone’s brain and saved Canadian taxpayers the postage. With Abdalmajid already deported, the application, which couldn’t be found when it was really needed, meant nothing. Even if he had tried, he would not have been allowed into Canada for the interview. Continue reading
