    Ottawa to Deport Man Who Believed He Was Canadian

    A 21-year-old petty thief who believed he was Canadian because he was born here has been ordered deported to India, local media reported Thursday.

    Deepan Budlakoti is the son of former domestic servants to India's High Commission in Ottawa. He was born at a hospital in the city in 1989.

    His parents won citizenship in 1997 but did not bother to make an application for their child as they assumed he was already Canadian by birth.

    After Budlakoti spent time in jail for a string of petty thefts and home break-ins, the government began investigating his status last year, and ordered an admissibility hearing.

    An immigration judge determined, according to documents obtained by the daily Ottawa Citizen, that he should be deported because children born in Canada to parents with diplomatic status are not considered citizens simply by birth.

    "This is an exceptional case," immigration law specialist Warren Creates told the Citizen.

    "But the law that applies to this matter is very clear. A child born of parents on diplomatic status cannot claim and is not entitled to Canadian citizenship by virtue of their birth in Canada," he said.

    In most all other cases, birth in Canada yields automatic citizenship, he said.

    The department of citizenship and immigration has shown itself to be flexible and sympathetic in past cases. But Budlakoti's long criminal record is unlikely to win him any favors.

    "I was born in Canada. I don't know anyone in India and... I don't even speak the language," Budlakoti told the paper.

    He is serving a sentence for selling a gun to an undercover cop, and awaiting deportation following a June 15 ministerial order.

    LET'S DEPORT THEM ALL!

    I hope they won't be lenient with him. We have enough real Canadians who commit crimes, no need to take care of other countries's criminals!
