Immigration System: Ottawa Wednesday and Ahmed Hussen

immigration system: We are aware of it, we are absolutely concerned and are opposed to people taking advantage of international students, Hussen said outside cabinet, according to CTV. We urge all of the effected parties to contact the P.E.I. provincial nominee program folks to deal with this and we'll do whatever we can to help the province. Ahmed Hussen said in Ottawa Wednesday he's expecting the Liberal provincial government to take action on the issue, but also said in general he's pleased by a provincial immigration system that is being criticized by some immigration lawyers as lacking sufficient oversight. On Nov. 26, The Canadian Press reported on three international students who described how they were required to return a portion of their pay to owners of businesses set up under the ownership stream of the provincial nominee program. All of the students are international students from China, and they were concerned about repercussions on their current employment prospects on the Island if identified. In one case, a student said he was fired when he refused, and in two other cases, the students said they agreed to give back a portion of their income in cash. ( As reported in the news.
