Afghan For Life and its more violent-sounding offshoot, Afghan Fighting Generation, emerged partly in Torontos Thorncliffe Park neighbourhood, a hub of Canadas fast-growing Afghan population. Police and immigration enforcement officers have now launched deportation proceedings against several alleged members, including Mr. Fatah, a 28-year-old Russian-speaking Afghan from Thorncliffe Park.
Since 2002, more than 23,000 Afghans have become permanent residents of Canada. Gang members began tagging Afghan neighbourhoods with Afghan For Life (AFL or A4L) and Afghan Fighting Generation (AFG) symbols a decade ago.
The crackdown on Afghan gangs is Canadas latest attempt to use immigration laws to tackle street gangs. Despite being responsible for much of the gun violence in Canadian cities, gang members sometimes escape prosecution because victims wont cooperate and witnesses fear retribution.
While that makes criminal convictions challenging, in recent years, police and immigration officials have teamed up to try a different approach: breaking up gangs by deporting key members to their home countries.
In Montreal, the tactic has been used against Haitian gangs. Honduran gangs have been targeted in Vancouver, while in Toronto immigration enforcement was partly responsible for ending the open warfare between Tamil gangs. Now Afghan gangs have been added to the list.

In societies run by LEFTISTS, they can understand the forces that drive people to stabbings, shootings, drugs (especially drugs), robberies, and theft. You know, you win some, you lose some - and if your 10 year old girl gets raped, well, maybe she’ll learn to dress more modestly in the future.
But they crossed the line at INSURANCE FRAUD. Now they’re being sent home, as that crime usually affects white collar people, and Canada will not allow people to live in TERROR of having to file the dreaded INSURANCE CLAIM.
Maybe ‘Afgans for Life’ is an anti abortion group?
I’m not sure why it’s so hard for predominantly white, Western countries to get immigration right. Other countries let in productive, decent people and throw out the trash. The West, due to “white guilt” and Leftist sabotage, does the exact opposite.
Ain’t 3rd world hell hole immigration wonderful? It adds so much to a bustling modern society.
