See video

March 18, 2009: A concerned Canadian questions the Conservative Immigration Minister Jason Kenney on his deportation of U.S. Iraq war resisters as he exits a press conference at the Sheraton Centre in downtown Toronto, Canada.

Minister Kenney is preparing to deport to jail a mother of three, Kim Rivera, who is an Iraq war veteran and war resister who saw first hand the illegal and immoral war in Iraq. Minister Kenney has called U.S. Iraq war resisters "bogus refugees" and his biased and discriminatory comments have been condemned by Amnesty International Canada and the Canadian Council for Refugees.
