Posted by IGN National News | March 21, 2018 08:24:18In 2015, when I moved to the US from Nigeria, my father was in the military.
He worked for a year in Afghanistan before returning to Nigeria, where he joined the army.
He fought for 10 years with the US Marines, but never left the country.
He told me his story when I came to the United States.
I have been working as a reporter for the Huffington Post, where I cover the news and issues that impact our communities.
My work has exposed the impact of immigration, including the rise of undocumented immigrants.
In Nigeria, the country with the largest number of undocumented immigrant children in the world, I met a 16-year-old girl named Zainab.
She told me she was a US citizen and wanted to come to the States.
She had no idea where to go, and was scared to ask anyone for help.
The girl told me her father was a farmer in Nigeria and had been deported twice.
My heart sank, because Zainabs parents had worked hard to get her here.
I wanted to learn more about the people that were deported, and how the government deals with the issues that affect immigrants.
So I asked a young reporter named Laura for help, and together we launched the #ImmigrantReport, an ongoing series that looks at the issues facing immigrants in the US.
Laura and I started the series after meeting a girl named Shanti in the refugee camp in New York.
Shanti, who had been living in the camp since 2014, told me about her father who was deported twice and how she wanted to be an American citizen.
She wanted to join her father in the United State.
We were able to uncover that Zainahs father was deported once and Shanti’s father once.
She was able to come here and join her dad.
We also learned that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency deported a group of people who were here on student visas and were not deported once.
I was able the last time Zain and Shanta came here, in 2018.
My story of being a migrant from Nigeria has changed my perspective.
I am a proud American.
My mother was born in the Philippines and came to America at the age of 5.
She is now a US Citizen and a proud immigrant, and she has made her own future in America.
We are Americans, and I love my country.
Laura was a refugee in the 1970s and her father came to stay with her when she was 12 years old.
He is now an immigration officer in the Immigration Department.
We interviewed him for the series and he told us he was deported in 2013 after his family was living in New Jersey.
When I interviewed Zainah and Shante, I realized that they did not have much hope.
The young girl had heard that her father had been sent back to Nigeria and was afraid to go back to her homeland.
I was able, however, to get in touch with the girl and get her family to come and meet her.
I also reached out to the family of Shanti to get them to see my report.
After I spoke with Shanti and her family, we started the #immigrantReport, which will continue until 2021.
I will continue to tell the stories of immigrants and families who are here in America and I will help educate others on what it is like to be a US immigrant.
