With the law services provided by Catherine Sas and her partners, immigrants will have greater chances of receiving fair treatment in the case FRFCA applies to them and limits their appeal rights.

Catherine Sas has recently announced that her law firm will now be offering services to immigrants affected by the new FRFCA law that hastens the removal of immigration status based on criminal recored. With the Faster Removal of Foreign Criminals Act (FRFCA) freshly passed into law, there have been noteworthy changes in many aspects of the country’s immigration program. Catherine Sas provides advice and advocacy on the loss of appeal rights to Immigration Appeal Division, the obligation to attend CSIS interviews, the denial of entry into Canada, the limitation of humanitarian and compassionate relief, and other penalties for misrepresentation.

Limitations and Penalties

FRFCA now limits immigrants’ ability to make appeals if they had spent time in jail for less than 2 years so that any permanent resident who has been convicted of a crime and spent 6 months or more in jail will no longer be eligible to bring an appeal to the Immigration Appeal Division. Furthermore, FRFCA includes a conditional sentence that is often much longer since it allows individuals to avoid jail time and serve their sentence while being at home and working. With the law services provided by Catherine Sas and her partners, immigrants will have greater chances of receiving fair treatment in the case FRFCA applies to them and limits their appeal rights.

A bill now requires foreign nationals applying for status in Canada to attend a CSIS interview if requested in the course of the application process. Failure to attend a CSIS interview will result in a refusal of the application process. It also broadens the scope of the disclosure, requiring applicants to answer questions about investigations that do not pertain directly to their immigration application. Having an immigration lawyer in such a case will ensure better representation and safeguarding of each individual’s rights. Other limitations, like denial of entry into Canada or a cap on the humanitarian and compassionate applications for persons who are inadmissible on grounds of security, terrorism, or organized criminality, subversion and espionage, as well as greater penalties for misrepresentation can be better dealt when immigrants hire an immigration lawyer.
