Randy Quaid Denied Canadian Residency Status

by at . Comments

Canada has denied actor Randy Quaid's request for permanent residency, according to reports, two years after he applied for refugee status in the county.

The Refugee Protection Division also refused to let Quaid reinstate a claim in which he alleged he and his wife were the target of Hollywood "star-whackers."

The Quaids have appealed to Federal Court saying their lives are still in danger.

"Organized crime and its victims are serious issues and can not be tossed off until the claim is heard," the couple stated in an application for judicial review.

"The refugee claims should remain intact as should Evi and Randy Quaid's heads remain attached to their necks; it is their firm belief that their lives are at stake and being racketeered on."

The couple applied for refugee status in October 2010, claiming they were being persecuted by a cabal of lawyers and agents bent on killing famous actors.

They said friends such as Heath Ledger and David Carradine died under mysterious circumstances. His lawyer Lorne Waldman said the officer ignored evidence.

Evi Quaid's father was born in Canada, giving her Canadian citizenship and the ability to sponsor her husband. They applied in 2010 for refugee status.

But, in an application for judicial review filed in Federal Court, Randy Quaid claimed an immigration officer had denied his application for permanent residence.

The reasons were not given.

The ruling places Randy Quaid in a bind, however, since he withdrew his refugee claim last summer and authorities are refusing to let him change his mind.

According to documents filed in a separate Federal Court file, Quaid initially asked for a guarantee he could stay in Canada before abandoning his claim.

He completed a notice of withdrawal in August 2012 but now says he didn't know what he was doing. "He never intended to withdraw his refugee claim," documents state.

Randy's wife, Evi Quaid, "suffers from dyslexia and post-traumatic stress disorder and she reacted out of fear when she completed the withdrawal form."

The Quaids now claim their lives are in peril again, they write:

"The Quaids claim is not Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. Evi and Randy Quaids lives are in danger here! Evi and Randy Quaid have been subjected to an injustice!"
