Canadian immigration authorities tried to deport one of the Toronto VIA Rail terror suspects nine years ago but never did so because, as a stateless Palestinian, he could not be sent to any other country, documents first obtained by the National Post show..

Raed Jaser was allegedly working illegally under several aliases when he was arrested in August, 2004, on an outstanding immigration warrant. Officials wanted to deport him because he had a string of criminal convictions but were ordered to set him free after two days.

The government’s failure to deport Mr. Jaser allegedly proved costly for Canada: He and co-accused Chiheb Esseghaier, an immigrant from Tunisia, were charged this week with plotting to derail a passenger train traveling from New York to Toronto.

Both remain in custody, while the FBI is holding a third man in New York. The Toronto suspects are charged with conspiracy to interfere with transportation and conspiracy to commit murder in association with a terrorist group. The RCMP said the plot was linked to al-Qaeda.

Mr. Jaser’s status as a “stateless person,” meaning one who is a citizen of no country, stems from the unusual circumstances of his parents. His mother was born in Saudi Arabia, while his father was born in what is now Israel. Both were Palestinians but neither had citizenship in any country. Mr. Jaser was born in Abu Dhabi but he never acquired United Arab Emirates citizenship.

“I am not a citizen of the United Arab Emirates, I can’t be,” he told the Immigration and Refugee Board in 2004, according to a transcript of the hearing. “I am a Palestinian by blood, that does not give me any rights whatsoever in my place of birth.”

After living in Germany for two years, where they complained they had been “terrorized” by anti-immigrant groups, the Jaser family used fake passports to fly to Toronto in 1993. Their refugee claims were rejected, but since they were stateless, in 1998 they were allowed to stay under the “deferred removal” program.
