Irish Trans Woman Applies For Refugee Status In Canada
 
# 16 : Monday 2-8-2010 @ 14:06
 
 
Northern Ireland does have a reputation for being the hate capital of Europe but there is so many places where, if she is at risk, she can go to and be safe in the E.U. / UK etc.

I'd be disappointed if they even considered her case.

Panti gives us her thoughts:

I am generally of the view that people should be allowed live where they want and that most countries are needlessly strict and often hysterical when it comes to immigration - though obviously I understand that a world without borders would be chaos, so it's a difficult balancing act and I'm glad I'm not the one who has to make up the rules. Though I will say that if someone has the gumption, courage, drive, resourcefulness, and desperate circumstances to abandon their friends and families and risk their lives on a dangerous journey to a foreign country and they make it there, then their application should be looked on favourably, if for no other reason that those kind of people would be an asset to any country.

However, attempting to claim refugee status in Canada on the basis that as a transsexual you would be persecuted in Britain and the EU is patently ridiculous and an insult to people who really are fleeing persecution. Granted, transsexuals don't necessarily have an easy time of it anywhere, but this is just silly.

Of course, why Canada wouldn't want to let a productive woman with her own business stay anyway I don't know, but grant her refugee status? Good luck trying to sell that one Missus.

Yep - completely agree with Panti's views on the case.

This woman has a case for settling in Canada but on the merits of her work and endeavours in Canada, not by making a mockery of the asylum/refugee process. I think that there are genuinely persecuted LGBT people from countries like Iran and Zimbabwe far more deserving then her.

sounds like she is determined to stay there, but surely easier way to do it?
