Maeng Family and Son with Autism Will Not be Deported from Canada!

 


VIKTOR PIVOVAROV/TIMES & TRANSCRIPT

The deportation order for the Maeng family of Moncton New Brunswick, Canada has been rescinded.  The family is no longer facing deportation because of their son's autism and epilepsy. The federal government rescinded the order after the Province of New Brunswick confirmed confirmed it will cover the health costs associated with the family's autistic son Sung-Joo Maeng 15. 

It feels good to be a New Brunswicker.  It feels good, once again, to be Canadian.  We have done the right thing by these good people. We have done the right thing for Sung-Joo Maeng.

Break out the champagne! This is truly fantastic news and a win for social justice.

My only concern is that some other province will try to pull this crap. Let this be a lesson.

Sometimes very good things do happen, a VERY GOOD day for NB and the family (especially)!!!!

My sympathies to FW2 - I guess that complete heartlessness may not come to pass after all. Man, what planet does that thing live on?
