22 Jun Fighting for Asylum Seekers
Rev. Benson Adu is a Nigerian pastor who was persecuted by Boko Haram. They kidnapped, beat, and cut him, and when he escaped, they tracked him down again. He fled to the U.S., thinking that getting out of the country would keep Boko Haram from harming his family. Unfortunately, after he fled they murdered his wife, child, and father. Even though he had committed no crime, he was detained in immigration detention for five years.
