The Untold Truth
By: G. E. Saigbe Boley, Sr.
About the Book
Here is a true story of the wrongful arrest, detention, conviction and deportation of G.E. Saigbe Boley, Sr. from the United States. He recounts his experience to expose the malpractices committed within the U. S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration system and to enlighten the uninformed public about the Liberia civil war; his role and personal sacrifices that were grossly distorted and misrepresented.
Dr. Boley conceptualized the front cover of this book while in detention at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility in Batavia, New York, and during his trial in Immigration Court as he was inspired by the deception and outright lies peddled by the DHS and ICE agents; their callous disregard for the fundamental legal and human rights of individuals; their abuse of public trust which is a stark contradiction of America’s professed belief in the rule of law and human rights.
Dr. Boley’s illegal detention conjures the image of a man in shackles and the hand of an ICE/DHS agent tipping the scale of Justice.
Falsely alleging that he sought to enter the U.S. without valid documents; threatening his witnesses, during his trial, with deportation from the U.S. by DHS/ICE agents; paying witnesses to provide false testimonies against him; and, denying his witnesses visas to travel to the U.S. to testify in his behalf while U.S. Government provided visas for its witnesses and transported them to the U. S. are a few of the injustices against Dr. Boley documented in this book.
