Poilievre demands halt to deportation of Punjabi international students

Pierre Poilievre

CONSERVATIVE Leader Pierre Poilievre on Tuesday rose in Parliament to demand a halt to the deportation of Punjabi international students who were victims of shady consultants who provided them fake admission letters.

He pointed out: “They came here, they followed the law, they studied. Many of them completed their programs, and it was the incompetent Liberal government that had accepted the letters in the first place.”

He added: “Now, this government is kicking them out of the country, sending them home to poverty and bankruptcy for their families.”

Poilievre asked why the government won’t “reverse its incompetence, show a little bit of common sense and compassion, and let those who came here in good faith and who are contributing to our economy” apply for permanent residence.
