Canada Is Deporting North Korean Asylum Seekers

Al Jazeera: Canada deports North Korean asylum seekers

Nearly 2,000 have been sent away since 2013 because the government says they lied on asylum application forms.

Despite its reputation as a haven for refugees, Canada has been deporting North Korean asylum seekers who came to the country through South Korea.

Nearly 2,000 have been kicked out of the country since 2013 because the government says they lied on their asylum application forms. Another 150 Koreans are under imminent threat of deportation.

Eleven years ago, Taegun Kim came to Canada with his wife, daughter and son. Now they have two more children, both Canadian citizens. A deportation would be catastrophic for the family.

"That notice means death to me," Kim told Al Jazeera. "I came all the way here for a better life and my family is well adjusted to life in Canada. To think we're going to be separated, it breaks my heart."

WNU Editor: If the North Koreans were honest in their asylum request (that they were from North Korea) .... they would probably have gotten status to live here a long time ago. But they lied .... and there are repercussions in Canada for doing that. The treatment of these North Koreans stands in sharp contrast to Prime Minister Trudeau arguing that returning Jihadists to Canada can be a powerful voice (see link here). Of the two groups .... if I had the power .... I would revoke the Canadian citizenship of these returning Jihadists, and give them to these North Koreans.
