- The Trump administration in America is set to deport 7000 Ghanaians
- The US ambassador, Robert Jackson says they have abused their visa terms
- After the declaration of the US elections in November 2016, US deported 108 Africans, 54 of them were Ghanaians
The United states ambassador to Ghana, Robert Jackson has revealed that the Trump administration is in the process of deporting over 7000 illegal Ghanaians living in the US.
Addressing the local media in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana, Mr Jackson said: ““In fact about 7000 of them are currently at different stages of the deportation process. And we are not apologetic about that”.
The ambassador in November 2016 hinted after Donald Trump won the US elections that Ghanaians who have overstayed their visas in the US must be concerned because the new administration will ask them to “depart”.
This latest development come on the back of the UK High Commission in Ghana’s revelation that four MPs have breached the UK visa policies.
The four are three sitting MPs and a former MP. They are Richard Acheampong, NDC MP for Bia East in the Western region (NDC), Joseph Benhazin Dahah, NPP MP for Ntotroso in the Bono Ahafo region, Johnson Kwaku Adu, NPP MP for Ahafo Ano South West in the Ashanti region and George Boakye, former MP for Asunafo South in the Bono Ahafo region.
They are accused of using their diplomatic passports to secure visas for persons who have failed to return.
