Petition to the Government of Canada
The President of the United States of America has signed into effect Executive Orders that prevent refugees and immigrants already accepted by the US from entering the country, with many unable to reunite with their families;
The President of the United States of America has moved to adopt policies that contravene the 1984 Convention Against Torture;
The above are in direct violation of Factors 1, 2, and 3 of the Canada-US Safe Third Country Agreement; and
The Agreement may restrict Canada's ability to accept refugees turned away by these Orders.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to revoke the designation of the United States of America as a "Safe Third Country" under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act until the United States returns to compliance with all Factors of the Agreement.
