Elvira Arellano denied entrance to Canada for “immigrant rights” march!

TRANSLATED FROM laopinion.com

The government of Canada denied entrance to their country to the Mexican activist Elvira Arellano, who last Sunday arrived at the Vancouver airport to participate in a demonstration. Elvira

By Telephone from Michoacán, where she already had returned, Elvira did not want to comment. “I could not enter Canada, but I cannot comment”, she mentioned. (Could it be because she’s a convicted criminal fugitive alien???)

Elvira Arellano went to the northern country to participate in an event at the border with the United States, on the Canadian side, the activities were carried out by members of the Migrant March III that left last February 2 from San Diego, California.

Elvira Arellano was an undocumented immigrant that called international attention in August 2006, when she took refuge in a church of Chicago avoiding deportation to Mexico. A year after its confinement left the temple to promote a migratory reform and in one of its first activities in Los Angeles was arrested by immigration agents and deported to Mexico.

“This is not right”, said Enrique Morones, leader of the caravan, “many activists arrived at both sides of the border to meet her, but they wouldn’t let her in”.

Morones added that the location where the encounter would have taken place on Monday, is a park that crosses the border, known as Peace Arch State Park.

In spite of the absence of Elvira, the activists carried out in at the location a vigil and a protest.

“She was going to participate with us at the Canadian side, it was going to be a moment of reflection and of prayer at the border, to carry the message that your vote is your voice, but she could not arrive”, commented Morones.

“In theory she should have no problems entering being a Mexican”, commented a source that asked not to be identified “What must have happended is that due to her record in the United States they (Canadian immigration officials) saw her as a possible candidate to remain illegally in Canada… they share lists with the United States”.

Which only goes to prove that your first instinct is usually the most sensible one. Elvira would have been better off if she had just entered Canada the same way she enters the US....without asking permission. I'll bet SHE'S learned her lesson. No more of that 'legal' stuff......

It's ironic that Canada refused her entry, and there doesn't seem to be any hard feelings....she asked, and they said "no". But the US, where she actually DID enter, and stayed for a long time, is the "bad guy". It's the US that she's 'mad at', not Canada. Perhaps the US could learn a lesson in all this about the wisdom of letting people in, and in the amount of gratitude they can be expected to feel...

She's determined to re-enter the US and that little prayer vigil may have been designed for her re-entry. According to Arellano, she and the current illegal holed up in Aldaberto Church, are like "family".

Hint to the illegals:

Stay out of Canada------your kind are not wanted there either.

I strongly suspect that the 'Canucks' have been watching what we have been dealing with and learning what to do or not to do

Default Good job Canada!

See Canada did the right thing. They ACTUALLY did what they are supposed to do, that is to ENFORCE immigration laws. Having traveled to Countries like Australia, Canada,ans England, let me tell you their Immigration does not play around and have very strict laws. When I went to all three of the above countries I entered on a temporary Tourist Visa. I was NOT allowed to work in Australia, Canada, and England, while vacationing there. In those countries don't even think about over staying your Visa. If you do, they will actually come looking for you. This is no Joke. Ourr Immigration Enforcement IS a joke, (though it's not even funny)

Maybe we should adopt Mexico's illegal enforcement policy
