Sue (File Number: 11-1476-8484) is a gay Ugandan refugee claimant living in Edmonton, Alberta. Sue is facing a deportation order because Border Services Canada doesn’t believe he is gay. Without an intervention by the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Sue will be deported by Monday, December 18th.
Sue needs to maintain his privacy because of the possible repercussions if he is outed at home. His identity as a gay man has been confirmed by Frank Mugisha, a prominent gay Ugandan activist. He is represented by a respected Canadian immigration lawyer with expertise in LGBTIQ refugees, Battista Migration Law Group. His lawyer made a request to defer his deportation, but on December 12th, this request was denied.
We are very concerned about Canada deporting him in light of the situation for LGBTIQ people in Uganda given the passage and implementation of the anti-LGBTIQ law.
Send the Minister, and your MP, a letter urging government intervention to stop Sue’s deportation.
