Lawyer’s lawsuit successfully put on hold to Federal plan for immigrant backlog
Pleading of lawyers have brought fruit and the court have agreed to postpone the backlogging of immigrants applications by a period of three months.
It has come as good news for the applicants who are seeking immigration through previous process now have now gained another 90 days period to make their plea in the Federal court. The lawyers have ultimately bargained some time for their clients so that they can get justice.
The Suggested Law:
The law introduced by the Immigration Minister Jason Kenney straightaway ordered to cancel 2, 80,000 immigration applications before the year 2008 and refund their fees without even considering them once. This step was taken to upgrade the eligibility of the applicants coming to the country, so that they may get the best talent for the benefit of country’s economy. But this decision has brought a wave of discouragement and sadness amongst those who have been waiting for years.
The New Decision:
As recently decided by the government authorities it has become a law to return and cancel backlogged 2, 80,000 immigrant applications, but in response to the mass pleas by the affected majority now it is further postponed by next three months so that they are given another chance to review their applications. Now the lawyers are planning to file suits to reverse this law in order get justice to those who have been waiting since long time to get through their immigration formalities.
Steps taken by the Lawyers:
With the stay to the law, now lawyers from all over the country are preparing themselves hard to change this law in favor of the applicants who are waiting since February 2008. Lawyers claim that they are working to avert the implementation of this law and also the government should not cancel these applications without reviewing them. In the given withhold time the lawyers are suppose to put their cases on behalf of their clients. They are also claiming that the affected applicants should be properly informed the authorities and also needful should be done in keep regard to the prospects of their previously filed application. During this period the Citizenship and Immigration authorities will in no way discard the applicant’s immigration cases by paying of their refunds.
In reaction to their pleas Kenny’s representatives are still holding on to the law and believe there will not be any major changes in its implementation. They further proclaim the process of refunds and cancellation would be implemented as soon as the Bill C-38 becomes implementing law.
Now it is up to Federal court to decide the fate of the law the immigrant applicants.
