Feds aim to strip Canadian citizenship from 3,100 ‘cheats’
The Toronto Star ^ | Sept. 10/12 | Nicholas Keung

Posted on 09/10/2012 3:18:31 PM PDT by fanfan

The day Ottawa launched an immigration fraud tip line last September, a Toronto man boasted to his friends how he scammed the system to obtain his Canadian citizenship.

Thanks to a tip, the man was flagged the very next day at his citizenship ceremony in Scarborough just before he was to take his oath.

He was taken out of the queue, denied his citizenship and blacklisted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada as one of 11,000 individuals from 100 countries who have been implicated in cheating to apply for citizenship or to maintain resident status.

“We are taking action to strip citizenship and permanent residence status from people who don’t play by the rules and who lie or cheat to become a Canadian citizen,” Immigration Minister Jason Kenney told a news conference Monday.

The government plans to revoke the citizenship of 3,100 people — most from Persian Gulf states

Remember the guy who failed to set off a bomb in Times Square a while back? He was a just recently naturalized citizen from one of the Arab counties. He’s now doing life, but have we bothered to revoke his citizenship? No....guess we don’t have the time for such a minor detail

Last week they closed their Embassy in Iran and this week tackled immigration cheats. They’re doing things right while we keep our heads in the sand and re-elect Obama.

It's leadership. I asked a friend of mine today if he would trade Steven Harper, Mark Carney and John Baird for Obama, Bernacke, and Hillary Clinton. He couldn't stop laughing.

For the record, Harper, Carney and Baird are boring and dull white men. They are also highly intelligent and extremely capable.

“most from Persian Gulf states”

And Dearbornistan is just a stone’s throw away. Can they seek asylm in the Islamic theocractic colony of Dearbornistan?

no we did that and thie crap we call the media would have all sorts of sob stories running and then demo’s with illegals in it demanding the Govt stop.

Yet again America is behind, the Canadians see what is going on as is Holland, Denmark etc but no we have pansy pants in the office wanting all sorts of illegals and third world here.

Slightly off topic , yesteray I went to a rememberance of a kids death.
We raised mopney, had games going on , and we also had fre food for tose who were there.

A family got out, they could nto speak English, they walked about, and then headed out getting their free food.
As a guy tried to stop them leaving to ask them why they did that, they drove off quicker laughing and the kids eating hotdogs.

This is the kind of scum bags pansy pants wants here

"most from Persian Gulf states"

I would wager an (educated) guess that the majority in western Canada are from Asia. Notably, Philippines and China.

I’m still in shock that this was reported in the Toronto (Red) Star. Then I was brought back to reality when I read the comments section below the article. Whew !! For a moment there I thought the (Red) Star had seen the light.

A lot of hand clapping and back patting when the illegals are from the Persian Gulf states.
And well deserved.

Lets see what the reaction is when the same is applied to the illegal/fake Canadians papers on people from China.
I'm willing to bet the #'s are 10x's the amount. Getting doctored Canadian immigration papers is a full time industry in the PRC. Some of it in Taiwan also.

No, and Obamugabe will probably award him some sort of medal for his intentions.

The Islamic fanatics out on the street should be our target for now, but I have to agree. What are you hard working Americans doing supporting that piece of waste? He should be sent back to the place he came from.

Although the globe seems so small now; it would help if we knew how to move them to a different planet. I guess it's going to come down to global war.

We are simply blessed to have Stephen Harper as our Prime Minister at this time. Thank God!
