DESPERATE asylum-seeker future permanent welfare sponge was dramatically photographed throwing his family’s belongings into Canada from the border with the US, after a police officer declared he was an illegal immigrant.
The man who claimed to be from Sudan had crossed a treacherous gully which separates the US and Canada with his eight other family members, four of whom were children.
Shortly after they had pulled up to the US-Canada border in Champlain, New York, an officer seized their passports and questioned the man.
But absolutely terrified their dreams to live in Canada could be shattered, the four adults and four young children fled and ran to Royal Canadian Mounted Police who could see them on the other side of the border.
Photographers captured the incident as RCMP officers helped them up, lifting the younger children and asking an injured woman if she needed medical care.
