Mr. Speaker, he talks about the 11 cases of individuals who were deported. We deported over 6,000 people last year.
The 11 cases happen to be, for example, individuals who failed refugee claims, left the country, subsequently married a Canadian and the Canadian has the right to sponsor the person in.
In other cases, people have overstayed their visits, then given a departure notice that turned into a deportation, left the country and then subsequently asked to come in on either a temporary basis or permanently.
There were 11 cases of that type versus 6,000 individuals we have deported and this member wants to base the record of deportation on those 11 exceptions.
With respect to the four cases from Honduras, the difficulty is those individuals came to Canada during the mid-1980s. It was not until the late eighties and early nineties that information about potential war criminal activity came to light. All four are being investigated by the RCMP. All four are being pursued by my department. One will come to an inquiry with respect to deportation so there will not be any minister's permit.
