The Canadian immigration system has its ups and downs, and candidates must be prepared for all kinds of situations. The situation faced by Redwan and Shuruvi Mozumder is evidence that the system is not entirely dependable. An immigration decision that was originally unimpeachable went off the rails soon and caused a lot of worries.
They had first arrived in Canada as teenagers, along with their parents back in the year 2013. They had traveled all the way from haka, Bangladesh, to build a home in Canada. However, fate turned on them when the children were abandoned by their father just a while after their arrival. Redwan and Shuruvi, alongside their mother, decided to submit their applications for refugee status. However, their mother’s application was rejected, and the subsequent appeal was also denied. This happened five years ago, back in 2014.
The government had also made it clear that they had denied the mother’s application based on the fact that she had given a fake name when applying for refugee status. As a result, she had submitted false documents to the IRB or the Immigration and Refugee Board. The mother admitted her fault. The IRB had also declared that the Mozumders were not qualified to be refugees since both Redwan and Shuruvi were U.S. citizens. Since the mother also had a Green Card, the entire family could find a safe haven in the United States.
Nobody can deny that the Government’s decisions were made on legitimate grounds, but no removal order ever came, which allowed the family to continue their life in Canada. The family accepted Toronto as their home. In 2018, the teens became involved in applying for permanent residence when a removal order finally arrived. However, Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, the local Member of Parliament, took care of the situation and got the order canceled.
