Niraj Warikoo Detroit Free Press Published 8:31 PM EDT Sep 12, 2018 U.S. House Rep. Dan Kildee, D-Flint, has introduced a bill to stop the deportation of Francis Anwana, a deaf and disabled Detroit immigrant from Nigeria. Rep. Kildee introduced legislation Wednesday that would grant Anwana, 48, legal permanent resident status, commonly known as a green card. The bill is often known as a private bill for immigration relief; Congress can grant permanent residence to a foreign national. This is the first such bill Rep. Kildee has introduced. Anwana is deaf, can't speak and has cognitive disabilities that put him at a second-grade reading level. He has lived in the United States for more than 30 years, coming to the U.S. on a student visa to study at a school for the deaf.

"In an exercise of discretion, ICE is allowing Mr. Anwana to make arrangements to depart the U.S. voluntarily," Khaalid Walls, spokesman for the Michigan and Ohio office of ICE, told the Free Press. Walls said: "Mr. Anwana, a citizen of Nigeria illegally residing in the U.S., was admitted to the United States in 1987 as an F-1 nonimmigrant student, but violated the terms of his admission by remaining in the U.S. when he was no … [Read more...] about ICE says deaf Detroit immigrant from Nigeria must leave the US
