Black U.S. citizen Kyle Lydell Canty seeks refugee status in Canada

A U.S. citizen has argued before Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board in Vancouver that he should be granted refugee status over fears that he will be killed in his home country by police because he is black.

Kyle Lydell Canty, 30, crossed into B.C.’s Lower Mainland in early September of 2015, telling border agents that he was here to visit and take photographs, but once in Vancouver decided he would apply to remain as a refugee.


 

I’m surprised Justin hasn’t intervened on his behalf.
