OTTAWA -- Two Americans who deserted the U.S. Army to protest the war in Iraq lost their bid for refugee status in Canada on Thursday.

The Supreme Court of Canada declined to hear an appeal from the two men, Jeremy Hinzman and Brandon Hughey, of decisions by immigration authorities -- backed in two subsequent court rulings -- that they were not refugees in need of protection.

Opposing the war believing that it was illegal and immoral, they deserted when they learned their units would be deployed to Iraq, and came to Canada.
