A total number 45 Gambian migrants in the United States were on Wednesday deported to Banjul on board an American flight direct from US, sources at the Foreign Affairs ministry confirmed.
According to the Standard newspaper, a senior immigration official contacted by The Standard also confirmed the arrival of Gambian deportees but could not confirm the figure or the circumstances of their return.
It was reported that some 2000 Gambians in the US are on deportation order but could not be taken out because of lack of proper documentation allegedly because the former government had refused to accept them by issuing them with identities.
The US government retaliated by imposing a visa ban on Gambia government officials.
