Moriba Kamara, a citizen of Liberia, came to the United States in 2007 seeking asylum. It was denied, and he was deported by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, and then jailed by the Liberian government on his arrival in Monrovia. After months in jail with no charges brought against him and no access to a judge or attorney, an NGO helped free him. Now Moriba struggles to eke out a living.
