Randy Quaid Canadian Refugee Claim Grinds on
Vancouver immigration officials to meet Friday with Quaid's lawyers to set next date for refugee admissibility hearing.
TORONTO -- On-the-lam American actor Randy Quaid’s next Canadian refugee board hearing hasn’t been scheduled, but his Vancouver lawyers are set to huddle Friday with local immigration officials, likely to set a date.
A spokeperson for the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada said a brief pre-hearing conference will take place on Jan. 28 between the Quaid’s legal team and officials with the immigration tribunal.
Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi Quaid, are not expected to attend Friday’s meeting.
The actor’s last appearance in December before the immigration tribunal was indefinitely postponed due to illness of an immigration judge assigned to hear his Canadian refugee claim.
The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada has been asked by the Canadian Border Services Agency to judge Randy Quaid’s eligibility to remain in the country.
The Quaids are attempting to stay in Canada and avoid a return to California where they face outstanding warrants for their arrest on vandalism charges.
Evi Quaid has been given permission to remain in Canada because her father was born here.
Randy Quaid faces long odds on securing asylum here as the Immigration and Refugee Board each year grants only a handful of refugee claims by Americans.
