Whereas Lucene Charles and her youngest daughter are under an order of deportation;
And because deportation would separate Lucene Charles from her three Canadian born minor children (and them from their young sister), her family, her friends and her means of living;
Because Lucene is her children’s primary financial and emotional support and her children need their mother, who in turn needs them;
Because Canada signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child, recognizing the particular responsibility of the government to protect children. A central commitment made by the Canadian government was to make the best interests of the child the primary consideration in all decisions affecting them;
Because Lucene is a hardworking, contributing and engaged member of her community and society and encourages and supports her children to be engaged and productive Canadian citizens;
Because EVERY human being has the right to live under fair conditions, in security and with dignity, among one's family;
Because the deportation of human beings is a form of state violence which must not be tolerated in a country that heralds the respect of human rights;
We the undersigned demand that Lucene Charles and her family are not separated and remain together, united on Canadian soil!
