Please send letters to stop the deportation of Abdoulkader Abdi.
No One is Illegal Fredericton is urging the government of Canada to intervene to stop the deportation of Abdoulkader Abdi who came to Canada at the age of six, with his sister and two aunts, all as jointly-sponsored refugees fleeing Somalia.
Abdoul became a permanent ward of the state at the age of seven years old. The Department of Community Services (DCS), which is responsible for child protection in Nova Scotia, did not make a citizenship application for Adboul and his sister. The Deputy Minister of that department recently stated that Canada has no policies for children in its care who are non-citizens. DCS does not expect to fix this policy gap until March 2019. Abdoul can’t wait. He is currently in detention, awaiting deportation, away from his daughter and family and to a country where he cannot speak the language.
Feel free to use No One Is Illegal Fredericton’s letter here for your letters.
