Refugee Rights Groups Denounce Canadian Government Complicity in Migrant Deaths, including Kurdi Brothers

September 3, 2015

Canada - Migrant and refugee rights groups across Canada are demanding that Minister Alexander and Prime Minister Stephen Harper answer for the deaths of Galip Kurdi, five, and his three-year-old brother Aylan, after it was revealed that their application for private refugee sponsorship (which would have cost Canada nothing) was rejected by Immigration Canada despite being hand delivered to Minister Alexander's office.
