uToronto siblings challenge deportation order

February 10, 2009

Steve and Trisha Sherman, students at the University of Toronto's Scarborough campus, are fighting to remain in Canada after they received deportation orders last month that they must return to their native Guyana by today. Immigration Canada rejected the siblings' refugee status application on the basis that the Shermans attended university illegally because they did not come to Canada on a student visa. The siblings attended high school in Canada and live with their grandparents. An online petition and a Facebook group have been launched to pressure politicians to review the case. CTV
