The US ambassador to Ghana Robert Jackson has hinted that more people will be deported in the coming few days because they have over stayed their visa permit.
He said about 7000 more people will be flying back soon.
According to him, he wondered why some Ghanaians are staying and working in the USA legally but some have refused to do so.
Mr Jackson denied reports that the deportees were unfairly treated and had to be brought back home under inhumane conditions. He explained that some were forced to be on board of the planes after they refused to be deported. We had to deal with them the possible way we can because they refused deportation, he added.
The ambassador noted that children birthed in the country can be allowed to stay as they are automatically citizens but otherwise they can’t help it than to deport them.
He gave this response when he was quizzed on what will be done to affected women and children.
This came up when the foreign affairs committee in Parliament met with the US Ambassador to address the press on recent issues of Ghanaians being deported from America.
Meanwhile, the chairman for the committee Hon Patrick Boamah in an interview with Top news Correspondent Yesmeen Abubakar Tetteh said they are set to meet with the deportees to know the truth behind their deportation and how they were treated.
