Although the story is headlined….
Canada Attempts To Deport Illegal Somali Immigrants
….the article makes the case that the Canadian government is not naming those countries, but obviously someone is naming the countries as we see in the headline and the last paragraph!
The United States is listed as one country not willing to take back its ‘citizens’ (probably for very good reasons!) who fled to Canada!
From Shabelle News (a Mogadishu, Somalia news outfit):
Canada’s attempts to send up to 1,000 foreigners who are here illegally back to their home countries are being stymied by nations refusing to take them back, officials said Monday.
International and domestic laws in most countries require governments to allow their own citizens entry.
“But some countries are refusing to provide travel documents to their citizens or are just outright refusing to take them back,” Scott Bardsley, spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, told AFP.
According to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the current backlog of foreign nationals facing deportation from Canada tops 15,000.
The removal list includes rejected refugee claimants and persons deemed inadmissible because of a criminal background or because they pose a national security threat.
China, India, the United States, Nigeria, Haiti, Pakistan, Mexico, Somalia, Cuba and Jamaica are the top countries of origin on Canada’s deportation list.
