Lawyers want the Federal Government to allow refugees to enter Canada

Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (CARL) has urged Ottawa to allow fully-vaccinated refugees to enter Canada via land borders with the United States.

In a tweet, the association argued that if people are permitted to eat indoor at restaurants, and tourists are allowed to enter the country, it is unfair to direct double-vaccinated refugees back to the US.

CARL states that ‘such a distinction is arbitrary and violates Canada’s obligations under international law, and the Government is required to assess the protection needs of persons who make a claim in Canada.’
