Ms. Tejada is an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) in Canada. After working there for years under Canada's Live-in Caregiver Program which grants her permanent residency in Canada, she recently found out that she had stage 4 lung cancer (like my uncle who died recently). She is being deported on August 8 due to a medical officer stressing that she is a burden to Canada's healthcare system. Many Filipinos go to other countries legally to work to provide better lives for their families. My father did so ever since I was born and I am doing the same at this time in the USA and so are a lot of my friends and family spread all over the world which is why this case caught my eye.
