Indian descent man appeals against deportation

Oct 16 2013, 8:30am CDT | by IANS

Toronto, Oct 16 (IANS) A Canada-born man of Indian descent, who has served time in jail, has claimed that the Canadian government has trampled on his constitutional rights by trying to render him stateless and force him out of the country.

Toronto, Oct 16 — A Canada-born man of Indian descent, who has served time in jail, has claimed that the Canadian government has trampled on his constitutional rights by trying to render him stateless and force him out of the country.

Deepan Budlakoti, 23, appealed before a federal judge to rule that he is "a Canadian citizen" and stop the efforts of federal ministers to render him "stateless, contrary to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms", the Globe And Mail reported Wednesday.

"It's insane that the (Stephen) Harper government is taking this position against a Canadian-born man who has lived his entire life here," said Yavar Hameed, the lawyer for Budlakoti.

The government must respond to the suit by next week, according to the report.

Budlakoti holds a birth certificate issued by the Canadian province of Ontario but his passport has been revoked by Canadian authorities who want to deport him to India, a country he has never been to.

Ottawa contends that when Budlakoti was born in October 1989, his parents had come to work as household support staff at the Indian high commission in Ottawa and thus their child was covered by diplomatic immunity and not entitled to Canadian citizenship.

Both of Deepan's parents were granted Canadian citizenship after they applied for it but Deepan's name was omitted from the application because they were allegedly told by Canadian officials that he was already Canadian.

According to the report, the then Indian high commissioner, in a letter made public last month, has confirmed that at the time of Deepan's birth, the Budlakotis were no longer working for him.

India, however, told Canada that Deepan is not an Indian citizen and it will not issue him a passport or allow his entry into the country.

Border crisis linked to North American Union

Aug 13 2014 7:36pm CDT | Source: WND

The author of a book that is credited with revealing to the public a clandestine campaign for a “North American Union” suggests the current border crisis – in which tens or even hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are simply moving into America – is a steppingstone to the original NAU plan. “We stopped the [Security and Prosperity Partnership] simply by exposing the plan to create a North American Union,” said Jerome Corsi, author of “ ...

Hamas Versus Israel: Moral Clarity Awards

Aug 6 2014 11:17pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

In an earlier piece, I offered ten candidates for the Moral Fog Award. These were countries, institutions, and leaders who couldn't, or wouldn't, make a clear moral distinction between Israel, a democratic nation seeking nothing more than quiet on its border with Hamas-ruled Gaza, and Hamas, a terrorist regime determined to fulfill its charter calling for Israel's destruction. Before moving on to my top ten candidates for the Moral Clarity Award, it's worth ...

White House's 'Totally Indefensible' Attack on Israel

Jul 31 2014 3:32pm CDT | Source: Big Government

White House spokesman Josh Earnest called Israel's attack earlier this week on a UN school that was sheltering Palestinian children "totally unacceptable and totally indefensible." He did not mention that the Israeli military has said that it was being attacked by Hamas terrorists in the vicinity, nor did he note that Hamas has used the UN to store weapons, to launch rockets at Israeli civilians, or to attack Israeli troops--as even the UN has noted. The attack on t ...

Joe Scarborough's 'Asinine' Attack on Israel

Jul 31 2014 9:16am CDT | Source: Big Government

Joe Scarborough, of MSNBC's Morning Joe, claimed Thursday that he is a "100% supporter of Israel," but that Israel's "continued killing of women and children, in a way that appears to be indiscriminate, is asinine."  The truth, self-evident in Scarborough's rant, is that he is no friend of Israel--and that he knows nothing about the Hamas terror group, either, which he describ ...
