ON IMMIGRANTS & REFUGEES | Deaf, disabled Detroit immigrant in US for 34 years faces deportation

September 15, 2018

Francis Anwana, 48, was born in Nigeria and moved to the U.S. when he was 13 to attend a school for the deaf.

Anwana lives in Detroit at an adult foster care facility, helping mow the lawns and mop the floors at a nearby church on Detroit’s west side.

But in a shock to immigrant advocates, the U.S. now wants to deport Anwana to Nigeria, a country he has not lived since he was a teenager.
