To the Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism
We, the undersigned residents of Canada, draw the attention of the Minister to the following:
THAT Gundemaro Barillas-Lopez and his family, of Langley, British Columbia, are good and true neighbours contributing in a meaningful and positive way to our community and country;
THAT to return the Barillas-Lopez Family to Guatemala is against the very spirit and purpose of Canada's immigration policy;
AND FURTHER, THAT returning the Barillas-Lopez Family to Guatemala presents a very real threat to their lives.
THEREFORE, the petitioners call upon you, as Minister of Immigration of Canada, to intervene on behalf of the Barilllas-Lopez Family and permit them to remain in Canada.
To permit Gundemaro and his family to remain in Canada
Because the lives of Gundemaro and his family are at risk if they are forced to return home
