Oscar Mata deported

Posted by admin on Mar 20th, 2013

Oscar was one of the workers arrested and detained at the immigration raid on a construction site in Vancouver last week. He was deported this morning.

Oscar has spoken publicly to reporters about feeling pressured to sign consent forms for the Force Four and CBSA Border Security reality show, approved by Minister Toews. Hear his interview with CBC here:

Before his deportation, he told reporters “I hate the word illegal, I am human, we are all human.” He also advocated for “Vancouver should be a sanctuary city, safe from such immigration policies.“

With sadness and rage, we continue the struggle.
