“Tamils’ Smuggling Journey to U.S. Leads to Longer Ordeal: 3 Years of Detention” by Frances Robles

Five Sri Lankan men left hometowns reeling from the remnants of a ruthless civil war and embarked on a monthslong human-smuggling journey that spanned seven countries.

They each paid $55,000 for a ride by air and sea to a fresh chance in the Americas. They were captured within hours of their arrival in South Florida and served as witnesses for the F.B.I. in the investigation of their smugglers, cooperation that the men were led to believe would work in their favor as their cases made their way through immigration courts.

Three years later, they are still waiting for their cases to be resolved
