Canada has announced it will give permanent residences to temporary foreign workers with experience in the country’s agri-food sector starting 2020.

Experienced, non-seasonal foreign workers with eligible job offers in Canada’s agri-food industry will be retained under the new permanent residence pathway dubbed Agri-Food Immigration Pilot.

The Canadian government said the industry exported a record $66.2 billion in products last year and supports 1 in 8 jobs across the country, but industries such as meat processing and mushroom production “have experienced ongoing difficulty in finding and keeping new employees.”

Currently, foreign workers under Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker program only receive limited-term work permits and have no pathway to permanent residency.

Temporary foreign workers who are eligible for permanent residence under the Agri-Food Immigration Pilot include retail butchers, industrial butchers, food processing laborers, harvesting laborers for year-round mushroom production and greenhouse crop production, and general farm workers.
Others include workers for year-round mushroom production, greenhouse crop production and livestock raising farmworkers, supervisors, and specialized livestock workers for meat processing.

A maximum of 2,750 applicants will be accepted for processing each year under the three-year pilot. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) said the program could welcome about 16,500 new permanent residents, families included, to the country over the course of the pilot’s three-year duration.

“Temporary foreign workers who come to this country and work hard filling permanent jobs should have a fair and reasonable chance to become a Canadian regardless of the job they are filling,” said Rodger Cuzner, Parliamentary Secretary to Canada’s Minister of Employment, Workforce Development, and Labor.

Churchill show comedian David Kangogo popularly known as David the Student was racially abused in the US, in an incident that was reported by the US media.

The artist relocated to the US a few years ago where he has been working as a cab driver. In a video that was posted online on Friday, November 20, David faced off with a wild passenger who racially attacked him.

David disclosed that he picked a couple outside a sports grill and asked them to put on their face masks to curb the spread of Covid-19.

However, the man took off his mask upon boarding the taxi. David’s again urged the passenger to have his face mask on which caused the passenger to become rowdy.

The former comedian pulled up the car to handle the issue but the passenger insisted on alighting and even threatened to pee inside the car.

“For me, all I thought about was recording the incident. I was scared that we would punch me or get aggressive,” David said later in an interview with KOMO News.

The video went viral and the passenger was banned from using the cab by the agency, Lyft.

KOMO News also reported that the passenger has been fired from his place of employment.

Local area police stated that they were aware of the incident but could not take action unless the comedian files a suit.

However, David said that he was not interested in initiating a legal process and that all he wanted was to move on.

“Thank you guys for the support. The cab agency has been supportive like the Mayor of the City too. We all can do and be better!” he tweeted.

In June 2020, Kenyans and the whole world joined hands in condemning an incident where an African American, George Floyd, died in the hands of police officers during an arrest.

Floyd was pinned to the ground on his neck by the law enforcers who were accused of strangling him.

Kenyan Woman in US Faces Deportation after court finds her guilty of Marriage fraud

A Missouri court on Tuesday, November 17 found Fidelina Mwelu Mutisya guilty for her role in a marriage fraud conspiracy.

The 61-year-old from Winchester, Ohio admitted that she participated in a conspiracy as she wedded a US national with the aim of circumventing federal immigration laws.

The marriage in question happened on Friday, June 22, 2007, as she sought to secure permanent residence in the US.

Her marriage was arranged by Delmar Dixon from Kansas City, Missouri, who was also found guilty and convicted in a separate but related case.

Dixon was sentenced to three years in federal prison without parole back in July 2017.

Mutisya was also found to have paid her spouse Ksh 100,000 for the wedding and subsequently agreed to part with Ksh 10,000 per month until the immigration process was complete.

The elderly woman advised her American spouse to deceive investigators that the marriage was legitimate and not to disclose that she paid him money.

During her stay in the US, Mutisya managed to stay on the right side of the saw as the court described her as a lawful resident.

Mutisya faces deportation under federal law, having committed multiple removable offences, including the offence to which she pleaded guilty.

Her deportation and other immigration consequences, however, will be subject to a separate proceeding.

Two other Kenyans Nellie Mbote, 35, Rogers Onyango Guche 39, are being investigated after their marriages were arranged by Dixon.

According to court documents, Mutisya entered into a fraudulent marriage to a United States citizen on June 22, 2007, for the sole purpose of acquiring permanent resident status. She paid her citizen spouse $1,000 at the time of the wedding and approximately $100 per month afterward until the immigration process was complete.

Mutisya admitted that she filed a form with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services falsely representing that her marriage was valid. She also advised her citizen spouse to continue to tell investigators that the marriage was legitimate and to never disclose she paid him for the marriage.

Mutisya, who was admitted to the United States on a visitor (B-1) visa, is a lawful resident. A felony conviction may have consequences with respect to her immigration status. Under federal law, a broad range of crimes are removable offenses, including the offense to which she pleaded guilty; however, removal and other immigration consequences are the subjects of a separate proceeding.

Mutisya’s fraudulent marriage was arranged by Delmar Dixon of Kansas City, Missouri, who was convicted in a separate but related case. Dixon was sentenced on July 13, 2017, to three years in federal prison without parole.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick D. Daly. It was investigated by Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
