Deportation order over fraudulent admissions letter could “set precedent”


The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada has ruled that Edmonton-based Karamjeet Kaur be deported by May 29, reports the Canadian Press. This decision was delivered after it was discovered that the college admissions letter Kaur received more than five years ago from Seneca College–which secured her entry into Canada–turned out to be fraudulent. Though a Federal Court judge found that Kaur “genuinely believed” the validity the letter, the judge dismissed Kaur’s request for a review of the deportation order. The Canadian Press states that Kaur’s deportation may set a precedent for potentially hundreds of other international students in Canada, who reportedly received similar fraudulent letters from the same agent in India.
