#2 What? A legal refugee is a person is exile who can prove a "well founded fear of persecution," if deported. Christians have been squeezed by Muslim states for centuries. Try: well founded fear of death.

#3 Coptics are about 6% of the population of Egypt. That's about 4 milion people. This means that unless they can show some credible personal and personalized threat, they are SOL.

#4 Amazing...the US aslyum system is so corrupt and populated with leftist officals, that they've even allowed people who hail from the Middle East (with European residence permits) to settle here. Some have lived in Europe for 10 plus years.

#5 Let me get this straight...they're claiming they were refused asylum because there is bias against Christians in Canada.?. Yeah right...hoser.
Heh...guess what...they missed the one year deadline to register for asylum in the US. Have a nice flight.

#6 Copts are being systematically threatened, assaulted, jailed etc. in Egypt and it will get a whole lot worse in the near future when Mubarak is dead. These people have my sympathy - they are in danger of being sent back to the tender mercies of the Muslim Brotherhood and related groups.

Three of the refugee board judges, he claimed, "are always refusing the refugee claims of Christians." Further, "one has an Iranian Muslim background. We have no problem with the board having Muslim judges. But we have a problem with a Muslim judge deciding a case involving Muslims against Christians."

Yeah, so would a bunch of people.

#8 The article is at least a couple of months old. Liberals were still in power. Couldn't find any updates, but I doubt anything changed. Given that immigration judges aren't immune to scandal (that Montreal case comes to mind), they might have a point.
