BREAKING: Tommy Robinson surrenders passport after dramatic Monday arrest

'I'm not causing any problem in Canada,' Robinson told Rebel News publisher Ezra Levant. 'You do need tough borders; you do need to monitor who's coming into your country,' Robinson said. 'But at the minute, you've got lots of dangerous people entering on a daily basis without any papers or passports.'

British independent journalist and activist Tommy Robinson has surrendered his passport following a dramatic arrest at a speaking event in Calgary on Monday night.

Robinson was detained upon the conclusion of his speech yesterday, cuffed by four plainclothes officers in addition to four uniformed officers for an alleged immigration violation.

Before being released, Robinson was given conditions to turnover his passport, remain in Canada and in southern Alberta, going no further north than Red Deer.

Robinson was scheduled for speaking additional speaking events in conjunction with Rebel News in Edmonton and Toronto and anticipated meeting Jordan Peterson to record a podcast.

While the Edmonton event has since been cancelled and tickets refunded, the Toronto event remains tentatively scheduled for June 20.

"I'm not causing any problem in Canada," Robinson told Rebel News publisher Ezra Levant, who described the Brit as an invited guest to the country.

"You do need tough borders; you do need to monitor who's coming into your country," Robinson said. "But at the minute, you've got lots of dangerous people entering on a daily basis without any papers or passports."

Despite having a flight booked home, Robinson says he's still not allowed to leave the country.

"I still want to come to Toronto, so whatever legal avenue there is to try and get me to Toronto, we can try and maneuver these conditions," he said.
