We need more of their kind

Mr. Vigil has very compelling humanitarian reasons to be allowed to remain in Canada. Clearly he has been a good Canadian citizen and member of his community for many years. What could possibly be gained by deporting him, aside from international shaming for Canada and lots of pain and sorrow for his family and friends?

I’ve known and worked with many Salvadorans and it seems to me that they could all be deported on similar grounds, because they opposed a brutal government that reigned by the force of death squads. What decent and thinking person wouldn’t oppose that?! We need more of their kind in Canada not less!

For goodness sake, let Oscar and his family stay together and in Canada!
