Another One Bites The Dust -- Sharmarke Mohamed Drug Pusher Deported
Federal records show that Sharmarke Mohamed was finally punted from Canada on April 16. "'If he had come from, say, Sweden, he would not only have been found inadmissible [under the Immigration Act] for serious criminality, but, in all likelihood, would have been deported long ago. However, he is a refugee from Somalia and is protected.' ... Because he came here from war torn Somalia, he has been allowed to linger, causing mayhem through his escalating violence, a Federal Court judge declared before deciding that enough is enough. Despite Mohamed having been granted refugee protection after fleeing to Canada — and a plea from the United Nations that he not be sent home to 'one of the most dangerous places on earth' — his drug and alcohol-fuelled crimes pose such a danger to Canada he must be sent back regardless, Justice Sean Harrington has ruled. Chief Justice Pierre Blais, of the Federal Court of Appeal, upheld the decision, clearing the way for [Mohamed's removal]. Immigration officials had hoped he had left the violence behind when he came to Canada in 1990 at the age of 27. ...
'Unfortunately, Mr. Mohamed’s settlement in Canada has not been quite peaceful. He got married twice, had two children from each of those marriages, and is now living separate from [both],' Justice Blais wrote in his appeal’s decision. There are court orders, in fact, against him contacting his first wife. He was convicted of assaulting a roommate with a butcher’s knife, of robbing three banks, assault, assault with weapons, assault causing bodily harm, and other crimes. Immigration authorities ordered his deportation in 2009, which he fought vociferously. [Not entirely unassimilated however; Mohamed insisted] detention violated his Charter rights under Section 7, claiming it would 'jeopardize' his life and security." (National Post, May 7, 2012) Note, Sharmarke Mohamed should not be confused with Sharmarke Mohamed Warsame. Also Somali, Sharmarke Mohamed Warsame was a well known local drug dealer on the Brooks, Alberta circuit. Found beaten to death in a field outside that town in 2008, the beat down was allegedly reprisal for holding an 18-year-old local girl against her will and raping her repeatedly. Does anyone ever answer for the failed decisions of our immigration and refugee admission system?
