Subject: RE: BS: 'Stripping of Citizenship'??
Sandra: that's a disturbing article. Similar things have happened in Canada, to our shame: in at least one case, a Somali-Canadian was deported to Somalia, of all places, even though he didn't speak the language and had no connections there, not having been there since he had been brought to Canada as an infant - he was deposited somewhere along the border with Kenya and told which way to walk. Then there was the Italian who had been living in Canada since he was eight, and did not speak Italian, who was deported to Italy. The term 'cruel and unusual' comes to mind .... I have no idea how many such cases there have been.
