Refugees don't consider themselves 'bogus'

New reform makes it us vs. them

The B.C. Catholic has an article from Michael Swan, the Catholic Register, that details the struggles refugees have with the Conservative government's refugee reforms:

Vilmos Csikja, his wife Beata and their four children from Hungary are the kind of people Immigration Minister Jason Kenney calls “bogus refugees.”

They have been in Canada three years. Their application for refugee protection was denied by the Immigration and Refugee Board, an appeal to the federal court was unsuccessful, the IRB’s appeal division turned them down and the Federal Court has now declined to overturn that decision. Their last hope is an appeal to stay in Canada on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
