The Saudi teen who fled alleged abuse by her family arrived in Canada Saturday.
Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun, 18, was seen smiling as she exited an arrival door at Torontos airport following a dramatic week that saw her flee her family while visiting Kuwait and then head to Bangkok, Thailand.
She barricaded herself in a Thai airport hotel to avoid deportation. Her case grabbed global attention after she mounted a social media campaign via her Twitter for asylum.
Her efforts picked up enough public and diplomatic support to convince Thai officials to admit her temporarily under the protection of the U.N. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees granted her refugee status on Wednesday.

Now if she renounces her religion and becomes a Christian that’s even better. I’m surprised PM Justine allowed this to happen. I thought he was a big supporter of the “religion of pieces”!
Sure glad we didn’t have to take this one. We have too many as it is. Maybe Canada would like to take few million from us?
Problem is, she shouldn’t trust her life and wellbeing to the Leftards schmucks running Canada right now. They would sell her back to the Saudis in a heartbeat.
Hopefully they’ll deny visa’s to her family - all that wonderful ROP honor killing.
Good point. I think Canada won’t allow itself to end up like the United States and open up the immigration flood gates, but I could be wrong. Mass immigration of Third World people into a First World nation never ends well for the host nation!
Asylum in a new nation is for when you’re fleeing your government’s improper persecution. Friends and family are for when you’re fleeing crappy parents.
The problem is that Muslims are allowed to lie about their religion. So they can say they’re Christian all day long (Obama?) and still act like Muslims.
How long is she going to be alive before they put a hit on her?
I am of the opinion that she needs to change her name and go into hiding for a year or so and start a new life.
Trudeau's just said he wants to take another million refugees by the end of 2021. She might want to rethink how safe she will be there.
Friends and family dont work when they’re just like the parents - honor killings is a big issue over there.
She needs the court to change her name.
Next stop America. Then she can bring her family over so they can “reunite” and all live happily ever after.
An amazing story...this kid’s got guts.
Don't look now, but your apostrophe is hanging out.
The jurys still out for me. Fact is she just like jumped hundreds of thousands of applicants based on a couple of social media posts, with very little factual actual facts. I hate the Saudi scum as much as anyone, but how many copycat claims is this going to inspire? How does Trudeau say no to the next one?
Canada's Minister for refugees and immigration (a muzzie) is calling for something like a million new immigrants right now.
I had one left over and didn’t know where to use it so I dropped it in there as in those visa’s (as in being possessive) belonged to the people who applied for them.
She will soon be a victim of a muslin revenge killing. Canada is too open and will not be able to protect her.
