Pakistan-Canada

The Canadian government is turning back many of the hundreds of Pakistanis at the U.S. border. The men seeking asylum in Canada say they're afraid they'll be detained if they register with the U.S. government as required. Officials at the United Nations High Commission on Refugees are calling on the Bush administration to stop the detentions, at least in cases where families are left stranded when their men are taken into custody.
