BUFFALO, N.Y. – A Liberian man who helped lead a faction accused of torture killings and recruiting child soldiers during the West African country's civil war has been ordered removed from the United States, where he raised a family and worked as a public school administrator in upstate New York.
The immigration judge's ruling Monday followed a 2010-2011 trial at which U.S. Immigration and Customs authorities said George Boley Sr., 62, committed atrocities in Liberia in the 1990s and was in the U.S. without valid documents.
"This historic immigration judge's ruling is the culmination of extensive efforts by Homeland Security Investigations special agents and ICE attorneys to bring George Boley to justice for his crimes," ICE Director John Morton said.
Boley has been held at a federal detention facility outside Buffalo for more than two years.
