The Trump administration deported a 41-year-old Detroit man to Iraq — he’d never been to Iraq, spoke no Arabic, and couldn’t access his insulin. He died on Tuesday.
In US news and current events of national and international importance, Detroit DREAMer Jimmy Aldaoud, who had been in the United States since he was six months old, died after being deported to Iraq. The Trump administration and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sent him to Iraq despite his not knowing Arabic or anyone there. Aldaoud had schizophrenia and diabetes which succumbed to without access to insulin injection. Iraqi deportations don’t get as much attention in immigration news but the Trump administration has targeted more than 1,000 Iraqis for deportation. Rep. Andy Levin spoke out against Aldaoud’s deportation and later death on Twitter.
