The Accidental Terrorist


In 1992, when Lino Nakwa was 12, he was kidnapped by the Sudanese People's Liberation Army and held captive for about a month. The U.S. government acknowledges Nakwa didn't voluntarily join the group. But it has designated the SPLA as a terrorist group. It says Nakwa received some "military-type training" while captive, so it has denied Nakwa's request for a green card.
