Claim: Video of Indian students getting deported from Canada for using fake and counterfeit IELTS certificates

Fact: The students in the video were waiting for their study permits to get processed at the Toronto Airport. The ‘Canada Border Services Agency’ has tweeted that the individuals in the video were not waiting to get deported. Hence the claim made in the post is FALSE.   

When searched about the incident, it was found on ‘Twitter’ that the ‘Canada Border Services Agency’ (CBSA) has given a clarification regarding the video by responding to a tweet. In its tweet, CBSA has clarified that ‘the video shows an overflow waiting area at Toronto Pearson, where international students are awaiting study permit processing. The individuals are not waiting to be deported.’ It can be seen that the official Twitter account of Toronto Pearson International Airport has also replied. So, the individuals in the video were not waiting to get deported

To sum it up, the students in the video were waiting for their study permits to get processed at the Toronto Airport.
