Man Deported To Gambia After 20 Years In US For Lack Of Papers by ameri9ja: 12:52am On Mar 10, 2018
WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. ā€” After more than 20 years in the United States, a Wisconsin man was deported to west Africa earlier this week, a federal agency confirmed.

Buba Jabbi, 41, of Wisconsin Rapids was deported Tuesday and back in Gambia by Wednesday afternoon, according to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement statement issued Wednesday.


Buba Jabbi, 41, of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., was deported March 6, 2018. He had been detained Feb. 15 as he made his annual check-in with U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement in Milwaukee.

Jabbi had entered the U.S. in 1995 and overstayed his visa. He was detained Feb. 15 after checking in with federal authorities as he had been directed and was set for deportation based on a judge's order from 2010.

A stay of removal had been filed on his behalf but was denied Feb. 27, according to Nicole Alberico, a public affairs officer with ICE.


Jabbi, the father of two daughters ages 5 and 1, was being held at a detention center in Sierra Blanca, Texas.

If necessary, Jabbi's wife, Katrina Jabbi, a native of Wisconsin Rapids, said she would move her family almost 5,000 miles to Gambia, a nation of about 2 million people that is almost twice the size of Delaware, to be with her husband.

"We have spent many years trying to rectify this situation," Katrina Jabbi previously said. "I will continue to fight and file waivers if he is deported. I will not be apart from my husband nor allow my children to grow up without their father."

ā€œI will not be apart from my husband nor allow my children to grow up without their father.ā€

Katrina Jabbi married Buba Jabbi in 2013, four years after meeting him. The couple has two daughters, Nalia, 5, and Aisha, 1, and they are expecting a third child in October.

Katrina Jabbi said she works part time from home and moved back to Wisconsin Rapids, about 135 miles northwest of Milwaukee, to be closer to her family. Her husband had been working as a truck driver.

Buba Jabbi has not been charged with a crime in Wisconsin and his detention was not the result of a criminal arrest.

He came to the United States in 1995 on a temporary travel visa to attend the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, according to Katrina Jabbi. When he tried to change his status to allow him to stay in the U.S., the paperwork he filed was incorrect and his case was moved into removal proceedings, where he remained for several years.

However, Buba Jabbi was considered "undeportable" because his country would not provide travel documents on his behalf, she said. Instead, he was given orders of supervision, requiring him to report to immigration once a year and obtain work authorization, which he had done for the past 10 years.
Buba Jabbi was at his annual appointment Feb. 15 in Milwaukee with immigration officials when he was detained and told he would be deported, his wife said. The statement from ICE said his travel documents from Gambia had been validated.

Buba Jabbi still has family in Gambia. Despite being separated from him, Katrina Jabbi said she is happy her husband will be able to see his parents for the first time in more than two decades.

So he abandoned his immediate family back home for twenty years for what he thought was a greener pasture. Now he will be forced to go home and see them. Africans with slave mentality

He didn't abandon anybody. He couldn't go back to see his parents because he couldn't travel for lack of papers.

That you were born in Nigeria is what makes u a citizen. U can't ask the white guy for nothing. You can report him to immigration but they'd probably look at u like u crazy.

I know many Nigerians are in same boat. They get tourist visa and never go back, yet never bother to straighten things out

I agree. But also think how happy his elderly parents must have been seeing their son again after 20 years. Could be a huge blessing in disguise.

It could actually be a huge blessing. He may find he'd never been happier in his life. I was reading about this sngle mom who got deported to Kenya with her you daughter. Best thing ever happened to her. She's now married with a solid life instead of drifting in Canada.
