Mexican teen deported despite fears of homophobic violence

January 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

Canada Border Services Agency has confirmed an 18-year-old Toronto student has been deported to Mexico despite fears from his supporters he could be a target for violence. Agency spokeswoman Anna Pape says Daniel Garcia was put on a plane Saturday morning. The teenager came to Canada three years ago with his older sister Brenda, who is gay. Brenda Garcia’s partner was murdered one night in Mexico while her brother was in the room, the teenager’s supporters say. They feared he would be attacked because of his sister’s sexuality if he was returned to Mexico. Brenda Garcia was deported last Monday. (Canadian Press)
