Migrants or Terrorists?

“Ottawa continues to hold a group of 76 presumed Tamil migrants in detention nearly a week after they arrived in British Columbia, as the government tries to determine if any of the men hold ties to terrorist or criminal organizations”

76 men were found last weekend on a ship heading for shore, the coast guard took the ship and held the men in Vancouver over night, and why? Because our government believes that these men may be terrorists. It has now been six days these men have been in captivity and there is still no word on their release.

Do you think this is fair? They have all stated that they wish to claim refugee status and build new lives in Canada. What would you think if you came to the one of the richest countries in the world and were denied access because the government thought you could be a terrorist?
