Nigerian Native Lawrence Eneh Will Not Be Deported

  1. 1. Nigerian Native Lawrence Eneh Will Not Be Deported Christopher Stender, Immigration Attorney
  2. 2. Introduction • Christopher Stender has been working in immigration law as an attorney since 1990, and is on the list of pro bono lawyers at the United States Department of Justice. One of Christopher Stender’s cases as an immigration attorney involved Lawrence Eneh, a native of Nigeria. Lawrence Eneh contracted the AIDS virus from a contaminated needle while working at a health center in Minnesota. He gained legal residence in 2000 but was was later convicted of selling marijuana and ordered to be deported after serving three years in prison. In the US, however, federal law prohibits deporting anyone to a country where they might be tortured.
  3. 3. Eneh • Eneh and his team were able to provide evidence that Nigerian officials would immediately lock up anyone with a drug crime and withhold medication. One judge opined that AIDS medication might be withheld in Nigeria because the illness is an epidemic in that country and there may not be enough money to afford the medication. Eneh testified, on the other hand, that officials would withhold the medication as a form of punishment for having AIDS, which amounts to torture. In the appeals court, it was agreed that Eneh would indeed be vulnerable to torture in Nigeria, so the deportation was blocked.
