The Hamilton Spectator is covering the situation of a Hungarian woman facing deportation from Canada. The link is here.
The woman's (unclear whether she was a refugee claimant or not) ex-boyfriend promised to assist her on regularizing her status. It apparently didn't happen. She was abused by him and fears for her life from her ex-boyfriend's family. She has a daughter born in Canada.
The author is requesting Canadians to lobby CIC/CBSA/Minister of CIC with respect to this particular case.
The circumstances certainly appear tragic. Our immigration system however does incorporate the principle of 'non-refoulement' - basically that we're not sending anyone back to a country where their life will be in danger. One of the ways this 'risk' is assessed is by way of a PRRA analysis (Pre-Removal Risk Assessment). However, given the extremely low rate of success (2% here in the Prairie region) its unlikely this will solve 'Anna's" problem.
