Open Letter to Prime Minister Trudeau Calling for Immediate Action to Stop CBSA's Treatment of Egyptian Refugee Families

We are writing to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to demand that the Minister of Public Safety withdraw his accusations against Egyptian refugee families in Vancouver of inadmissibility for their affiliations with political organisations in Egypt.

CBSA alleges that political organizations like the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) engaged in acts of terrorism, subversion by force, and subversion against democratic institutions and processes under section 34(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA).

Though the Government of Canada does not view Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood nor the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) as national security risks, CBSA officers in Vancouver continue to allege these asylum seekers are members of terrorist and subversive organizations.
