A court case in Detroit, Michigan, involving 114 Iraqis, asks whether it is lawful to send foreign nationals back to their countries of origin if there is a high likelihood they will be tortured or killed. As VOA immigration reporter Aline Barros reports, the case could have far-reaching consequences for thousands of other foreign nationals from a variety of countries.
