Mr. H lost his family as a child during the Liberian civil war when his father was abducted by rebels and his mother and siblings were murdered by armed men sent by then-President Charles Taylor. Mr. H then fled with other refugees to a school in Senegal, and subsequently arranged a trip to America where he was abandoned by the school's director and became homeless, without immigration documents.
