Just days after news emerged that a Ugandan was shot dead by US police in Southern California; we are reliably informed that Ugandan government twice blocked his deportation from the Obama land.
It has emerged that US Federal officials tried twice to deport the 38-year-old Alfred Olango, but Ugandan government refused to take him back, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Olango’s history with federal immigration authorities came to light in the wake of his being killed Tuesday by an El Cajon police officer after emergency dispatchers received a 911 call from his sister saying that he was “not acting like himself.”
The shooting spurred protests Tuesday and Wednesday nights in El Cajon, about 16 miles northwest of San Diego.
Olango arrived in the U.S. in 1991 as a refugee from Uganda, but was ordered to be deported after he was convicted for transporting and selling narcotics, the U.S. immigration agency’s western regional communications director, Virginia Kice, told ABC News in a statement. He was later released from immigration custody in 2003 after multiple requests were made to the Ugandan government to obtain travel documents for Olango.
At the time of his shooting, his sister said he had a mental break down following the death of one of his close friends a few days before and that she had called police to help.
