"I left Bangladesh and traveled across a dozen countries to escape political repression and save my life," Jahed Ahmed, an asylum seeker and DRUM member, said in a statement. "Instead, I ended up rotting away in detention for over 10 months. The U.S. government gave the names of many of the detainees to the Bangladeshi government, and they then leaked them to the media. Our asylum cases and hunger strikes have become a political issue for the Bangladeshi government, and now the Obama Administration wants to deport me back to where I will be disappeared, tortured or killed."Advocates Concerned Bangladeshi Asylum Seekers May Be #Deported2Death - NBC News
