The Case of Criminal Deportation - Landed immigrants/permanent residents deported to country of origin following arrest and conviction o Easy to exercise this, anyone convicted of a sentence with 2 or more years of prison time (before it was 10 years) o Why? Cost and the space of prisons, the idea that they are not true Canadians yet, solves the reoffending problem (cheaper than rehabilitation or incarcerating them) o Most of the convicted crimes are for drug trafficking - Cruel – but not so unusual punishment o How does this impact the offenders in question? o Many offenders who are deported had families/children that are Canadian o Is it over and above the threshold of justice and equilibrium - Negative impact on offenders – especially those who immigrated at a young age - Issue of collateral damage o Always talk about offenders feeling pain and be punished but what about family members and friends? o Families of deportees have to weigh factors of keeping the child in Canada or take them with them and risk education, employment opportunities o Deportation is common in Canada MARCH 4 TH2013 Special Guest Speakers : Hungry Eyes Film and Television inc.
