“At the end of the day, all I am asking for is to get back my citizenship and to be allowed to live a normal life.” – Deepan Budlakoti

Deepan Budlakoti is an Ottawa born man who is now facing deportation to India, a country where he has never lived, has no family and where he is not even a citizen. The only thing stopping his deportation at this point, is that India is refusing to issue a travel document for him.

In the meantime, his life is in limbo: he is under imminent deportation, under a strict curfew, obliged to live with his parents, and has no access to basic social services.

Deepan is a member of our community, and we stand with him as he fights to remain with his family and friends in Ottawa and uphold his full dignity! We reject the unjust and racist policies that seek to dehumanize and throw him out of our community and country!
