    The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Thursday, July 19, ordered the deportation of Australian nun Sister Patricia Fox and included her in the BI blacklist, which bars her from ever returning to the Philippines.

    The BI ruled that Fox violated the conditions of her missionary visa because she allegedly joined political activities. Her lawyer, Jobert Pahilga, provided a copy of the BI resolution on Thursday.

    In its resolution, the BI noted that Fox was granted a missionary visa on July 21, 2016, valid until September 5 this year, "with a limitation that she will render her missionary work in Barangay Amihan, Quezon City."

    "However, Fox engaged and interfered in political activities from north (Tarlac) to south (South Cotabato) of the Philippines. She works outside of her community," the BI said.

    The bureau continued, "Fox violated the limitation and condition of her missionary visa which allowed her to engage in missionary/religious work, not political activities, in the Philippines. Her presence in the country poses a risk to public interest."

    (Read the full text of the BI resolution below.)

    Ya, you don't get to go to another country and raise political hell and call it missionary work.

    Think I have a Timex that was made in the Philippines. A 1988 model. It's nice. And still keeps time. It's a diver.

    Anyway. Here's a snapshot of the charges...[​IMG]

    Safest thing for her is to get out of the Philippines as quickly as possible. It is not safe there.
