Eleven-year-old Fanta Fofana spoke barely above a whisper as she described the day immigration officers burst into her Bronx apartment and took her dad.That's definitely unfortunate. But, did he bring it on himself? Let's find out:
"I was sleeping with my sisters and my cousins," Fanta said, her eyes downcast. "The police came and took my father away from my family. I was born here and I can't believe my country would do this to me."
an immigration court determined that Fofana improperly overstayed his visa, in violation of a prior order to leave the country in 1998So, the person responsible for the situation would seem to be Fofana himself, and not our laws.
