Kwan questioned why the fraudulent documents were not detected until the students began to apply for Permanent Residence in Canada. She favours a humanitarian ground for students. 

As per Kwan, “The significant harm experienced by students, including financial loss and distress, and measures necessary to help the students to have their deportation stayed, inadmissibility based on misrepresentation waived and provide a pathway to permanent status.”
