Sep 15, 2007 Quickie Link: Alvaro Orozco to Be Deported
By vanrozenheim

(Canada) - Canada's immigration system has once again rejected Alvaro Orozco. The Nicaraguan-born refugee claimant, originally denied status last October because an Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) member didn?t believe that he was gay, was issued a negative decision on Sep 14 in connection with his second pre-removal risk assessment (PRRA). A deportation date has been set for Thu, Oct 4. Orozco, 22, came to Canada in 2005 by way of the US, which means that he would be deported back to the US. "If they send me to the US I would go to a detention centre," says Orozco. "I was in the US for five years and I was illegal so if I go back I maybe can face jail there."
