Summary:

Peter Ekwiri, a Ugandan, is only one of many people whose applications for asylum in the E.U. have been denied. And like many other blacks from Africa considered "undesirable" by European governments such as Sweden and Germany, he was forcibly deported—but not to his home country. This program uses Ekwiri’s case as a springboard to reveal a corrupt system in which E.U. police and immigration authorities clandestinely pay Ghana to act as a transfer point—in reality a dumping ground—for black deportees. Part of the Series : Fortress Europe: The Immigration Situation.
