Immigration demo. Sylvester Owino, a Kenyan, has been detained in the US for 11 years

Sylvester Owino’s parents raised him as a Christian in Kenya, but he readily admits to straying as a young adult. After emigrating to the United States on a student visa in 1998, Owino had a series of alcohol-related run-ins with the law, including domestic battery and two Driving Under Influence (DUI) convictions.
