USA – Man threatened with deportation after 34 years in the US

The Detroit Free Press has reported that a Nigerian who faces severe physical challenges has been threatened with deportation to the country of his birth despite his not having lived there for 34 years.  The man in question, 48 year old Mr. Francis Anwana, reportedly entered the US aged 14 on a student visa and does not have current legal immigration status in that country.   However, it has been argued by (his lawyers) that deportation will result in a “death sentence” for Mr. Anwana, presumably due to the extent of his physical challenges coupled with his unfamiliarity with his home country.
