IcelandReview - Online

Quote:
The Directorate of Immigration has concluded that Mark Cumara, a 23-year-old resident of Thorlákshöfn, southwest Iceland, is residing illegally in Iceland and must leave the country by September 16. Cumara has lived in Iceland for five years.

Cumara’s mother and foster-father are both Icelandic citizens who have resided in Iceland for the past decade. His sister, grandmother and grandfather are also Icelandic citizens and Cumara has lived with his family in Thorlákshöfn for five years, 24 Stundir reports.

Cumara and his family all work at the fish processing company Frostfiskur. “He is an efficient, hard worker, always arrives on time and pays his taxes and his debts. Now he’s just being deported,” said Cumara’s foster-father Alexander Aksel Andrésson.

“We don’t know the rules and no one warned us that he would all of a sudden become illegal in his own home,” Andrésson said, adding that he does not understand why the family is not given some time to sort out the required residence permits.

Yes, it only applies to us. Other countries are allowed to enforce their immigration laws. We are expected to be the benefactors for the entire world. Come one, come all!

Indeed, it is embarrassing. We are the laughingstock of the world.

Why are you so hung up about people protesting at Home Depot? Losing a lot of work?

Because its absolutely ridiculous. Speaking about "barking at the wrong tree".. Yelling at illegals will not make them go home any faster.
