About 7,000 Ghanaian citizens face deportation from the United States of America for being there illegally, the US ambassador to Ghana has revealed.
Ambassador Robert Jackson, speaking in the Brong Ahafo region earlier today (Thursday), said that over 7,000 Ghanaians are in different stages of the deportation process.
“In fact about 7,000 of them are currently at different stages of the deportation process. And we are not apologetic about that,” he said.
Tougher immigration policies are a hallmark of the new Trump administration, which run on kicking out the Mexicans and the Muslims and building a beautiful wall on the nation’s Southern border.
Illegal immigrants who might have remained in the US under the last administration unless they broke a law get no reprieve in the age of Trump.
