Dear Hon. Day
RE: Deportation of Behnood Saadatkhani
We request you to authorize Behnood Saadatkhani who had been ordered to go back to Iran on May 7, 07. Behnnod to stay in Canada since he needs medical treatment .
Behnnod is suffering from Schizophrenia and needs treatment. He is kept for several months at the detention center in Ottawa. Because of his illness he obviously can't recognize the consequences of his deportation. He is not capable of making the right decisions on his own. So he needs discipline, authority, --- and guidance. So, he needs help to improve his life style and decisions in the near future.
Behnood came to Canada with his mother and smaller brother when he was 12 years old in 1996.
Behnood was raised here for the last 11 years. He is not familiar with the language and the culture of Iran, he would suffer badly if he is sent back. If you send him back to Iran, he is done, --- he is finished.
Behnood 's mother and brother are Canaan citizen.
We request you to meet Behnood 's mother who has been working long hours on a minimum to support his family in last decade.
Please stop deportation order to give his family a chance to treat Behnood . As a free society we feel obligation to help those who needs our help in order to make a better and safer society.
Thank you for you concerns.
