A Zimbabwean granny is set to be deported from Canada on Saturday. Martha Ngosi (72) says she has been told she will be forcibly put on a plane in two days time.
She is now frantically campaigning to remain in Canada. She said in a petition “I am a 72 year old woman and I am currently scheduled to be deported back to Zimbabwe on September 16. I am terrified at the thought of being deported. I have not been to Zimbabwe since I left in 1999, so I have nowhere to live there, and my dctors in Canada are worried that if I am deported, my health will deteriorate and I could get very sick or even die.
I know all of this from first-hand experience; my husband died in Zimbabwe in 2015 because he could not get the medical care that he needed.
I left Zimbabwe in 1999, and I have not returned since. Like many others, I lived in the United States without immigration status for many years, because there was no way for me to apply for permanent status. Then when Donald Trump was elected, I was afraid I would be deported so I came to Canada seeking refuge. I now live in Hamilton Ontario with my brother, and I love it here. After living without immigration status in the United States for 17 years, I finally feel like I have a home. I love Canada, and I want to live the rest of my days here.
I have applied for permanent residence in Canada, but the Canada Border Services Agency is trying to deport me while my permanent residence application is in process. I beg you to please sign my petition. agencies
