Contributed by NAUWATCH on Monday, December 22 at 09:23 (6,185 reads)


In the first two years of the Felipe Calderon administration, Mexico has become a focal point in the violation of the human rights of immigrants even as it criticizes the treatment of Mexican migrants in the United States. The UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants Jorge Bustamante states the problem in no uncertain terms: "We are responsible for violations of the rights of Central Americans passing through Mexico, the same or worse as those of Mexicans in the United States."

Two hours were enough for José Luis Sánchez and his family to pack their most valuable belongings in two vans – items accumulated in 10 years of living in the Dallas area.

With his wife, children and their suitcases in place, Mr. Sánchez closed the door of his Mesquite apartment for the last time, sat at the wheel of one of the vehicles – his brother drove the other – and hit the road back to his homeland.

So ended his decade-long adventure as an illegal Mexican immigrant in the United States.

Today in Canada, there is a dearth of movers and shakers …(leaders), with the result that this country is now beginning to reap what was sown by decades of governments and politicians who lacked the ability to look much beyond their noses …resulting in poorly considered  decisions, primarily motivated by political expediencies while denying common sense and implications for the future.

Canada to Double Number of Iraqi Refugees

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 19, 2008) - The Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, today announced that Canada will more than double the number of Convention refugees it receives this year from Iraq.

Canada will welcome between 1,800 and 2,000 Iraqi refugees in 2008, up from approximately 900 in 2007. The majority will be resettled from Syria and Jordan.

"This year, we are responding to the situation in Iraq by significantly increasing the number of Iraqi refugees we accept," said Minister Finley. "Consistent with Canada's longstanding tradition of providing protection to refugees most in need, we will continue to monitor this situation and explore options to further meet resettlement needs with respect to Iraqis."

Including the Iraqi refugees, Canada is increasing the Middle East resettlement target to 3,300 people this year, which is a 54 percent increase over 2007. This means that Citizenship and Immigration Canada will be allocating almost one third of its global resettlement places to Iraqi and other refugees displaced in the region by war.

Ottawa, March 7, 2008 — The Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, announced today the arrival of the first of a number of Vietnamese who have been living in the Philippines without status since the 1970s.

Four people were among the first to arrive today in Vancouver. More will arrive in the coming days and weeks as the government follows up on a commitment made last May to review their applications based on humanitarian and compassionate considerations.
Mr. Ed Komarnicki, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration greeted the arrivals in Vancouver on behalf of Minister Finley. “We are pleased to welcome these individuals as they have been living in an uncertain situation for many years,” said Parliamentary Secretary Komarnicki.

Ontario Targets Best and Brightest McGuinty Government Expands Program to Attract International Students WATERLOO, ON, Feb. 12 /CNW/ - Attracting international students to Ontario and keeping them here in high-value jobs is a benefit to the provincial economy.

Previously, only graduates of Ontario post-secondary institutions could be considered. Now the program is open to international students Canada-wide. The students need to be graduates of a publicly funded Canadian college or university and have a job offer in Ontario.

Immigration Canada Facilitates Citizenship For Children Adopted Abroad
Contributed by N Say on Sunday, December 23 at 11:01 (3,313 reads)
Canada facilitates citizenship for children adopted abroad OTTAWA, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- A law making it easier for children adopted abroad to become Canadian citizens went into effect Sunday, according to a statement on Citizenship and Immigration Canada's website. Parents previously had to apply to sponsor such adopted child to come to Canada, then seek permanent resident status for him or her, before finally applying for citizenship, a process that could take 18 months. Now, based on an amendment to Canada's citizenship laws passed earlier this year, parents could directly seek Canadian citizenship for their adopted children from outside the country, and such a child can even obtain a Canadian passport before entering the country.

Immigration Quebec Reasonable Accommodation Hearings
Contributed by fullife on Monday, October 29 at 12:41 (5,801 reads)
QUEBEC REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION HEARINGS I am a Black-American-Anglophone-Christian-Woman who resides in Quebec. I know that my views on the reasonable accommodation hearings will not be counted in the final analysis. However, because I love Montreal, I cannot keep silent on this very important issue. I was not at all surprised that many people in Quebec want immigrants to give up their cultural and religious identities as a condition to becoming a Quebec citizen. Why does the majority population of Quebec feel that it is necessary to mold and shape immigrants into their own image? I have some experience in this area because I grew up in a small American southern town where the White majority felt the exact same way. Black people were seen as a threat. Many unjust laws were passed to keep us in our place and from corrupting White people’s way of life. Black people did all that could be done to fit in. Many became Christians and adopted the southern culture. We talked with a southern accent and did our best to look just like them. After all of our assimilation, we realized that we had lost our identity. The road back to our roots has been a long and painful journey.
