Conservative reaction to refugee crisis appears insincere: Seligman

Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman says the federal government’s reaction thus far to the Syrian refugee crisis appears to be strictly political.

Seligman, a certified specialist in citizenship and immigration, says a recent opinion piece in the Toronto Star — entitled, “Will the photo of Aylan Kurdi change anything?” — accurately sums up concerns that have been building within the immigration and refugee bar for quite some time.

The heartbreaking photograph of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi washed up on the shores of Turkey earlier this month, “stirred the consciousness of not only Canada, but the world,” Seligman tells AdvocateDaily.com.
