Upset with Ottawa's attitude toward Jose Figueroa

Editor: Re: “Figueroa deemed threat to Canada,” (The Times, Oct. 17).

I am so upset at my country that they could treat a law-abiding citizen the way they treat José Figueroa.

The immigration department allows known Tong members into Canada because they have broken no laws in Canada.

What laws has José broken? I would like the government to tell me why José is a threat to Canada.

While I’m on this topic, I am getting a little ticked at MP Mark Warawa riding the coattails of the Figueroa family’s predicament.

He appears to be trying to help in this very sorry situation but all I see is his photo popping up alongside many of the stories of José Figueroa.

Is MP Warawa so far back in the back bench that he is without clout?  We need a representative in Ottawa who can do something for the people of this area when they need help.
