Torture survivors find haven and even success in Cleveland (photos, videos)
Three survivors of torture helped by Catholic Charities of the Cleveland Diocese recount their escapes and their success stories. Watch video CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Eritrea is commonly dubbed "the North Korea of Africa" for its repressive policies that have forced thousands of residents to flee that country. Among them is Dawit, who does not want his full name used for fear of government retribution against family members still living there. Dawit said he was a teacher with a college degree in business management, but also a member of the Pentecostal Christian Church, which was outlawed by the government in 2010. Because of that membership, Dawit said he was imprisoned, tortured and beaten until he managed to escape and make his way to the U.S. by way of Mexico. He was caught coming into Texas and transferred to a detention facility in Ohio, where he heard about Catholic Charities' legal aid services. His petition for asylum was granted last March, and he was able to find a job and housing (with an Eritrean family) in Cleveland with the assistance of Catholic Charities. "I was lucky to come here," he said. "They (Catholic Charities) helped me with everything. Once I came here I had a place to live, a job, and a place to recover my mind." His case for asylum was argued by Adriana Coppola, immigration staff attorney, who said only a third of such requests are usually granted. Dawit's case was based on religious persecution. Another success story involves Yvon Kipata, 56, who was jailed and beaten by government troops during the civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo that started in 1998. He and his wife and six children were able to escape, and spent 15 years living in a refugee camp before coming to the U.S. Kipata recently told how he was a businessman, running boats on Lake Tanganyka, when his operation was taken over by government troops. "We lived like slaves," he said. "They forced you to work for them for nothing." Kipata said that when his pregnant wife was identified as a Tutsi, a group that sided with rebel forces during the war, she was briefly jailed. Then, a soldier who belonged to the same tribe as Kipata was able to sneak her and their children out of the country. Kipata was not able to go along and was imprisoned. He said he was forced to work and was regularly beaten. "It was very bad," he said. "It's pain, but you must stay strong. But that is not easy. You try." One day, when a guard shot another soldier in a dispute, Kipata was able to take advantage of the resulting confusion and escape, later re-joining his family. They have been in Cleveland for nearly a year. Catholic Charities arranged for housing, and helped Kipata get a job as a food porter with Sodexo at the Cleveland Clinic. "It's a good life here," Kipata said. "I like Ohio and Cleveland. "I thank the whole Catholic Charities, the staff, for what they do for us," he added. Fatima Adam, 40, fled from her village in the Republic of Sudan in 2004 after it was attacked by counter-insurgency militia forces, and her father, a farmer, was shot to death. The nation that has been wracked by war and famine had more than 1 million refugees like Adam last year. "The government gives the guns to the (militia) and tell them to go out and kill all the black people, because we are black and not Arab," Adam recently recalled. She escaped with her mother, brothers and sisters to a refugee camp in Sudan, but even there, safety was not assured. Adam said women who left the camp to gather firewood were often attacked, beaten and raped. "The men, they just kill them," she said. Her legs still bother her from the beatings she suffered. She and her family spent eight years in the camp before medical problems forced her to seek attention in the country's capital, Khartoum. Then, she and her brother decided to seek out a country "that had good health and a safe place (where) no one can hurt you," she said. They came to Cleveland in 2015, and Catholic Charities helped her with job training, employment, finding a residence, learning the language and counseling for the memories that still linger. "It was bothering me. Always I was remembering my dad, our village," she said. Working, and the counseling, has helped. "Yeah, I'm a little better," Adam said. "It's just sometimes . . . You cannot forget these things that happened. You cannot forget." Adam, who is a leather worker for Fount in Cleveland, hopes to obtain her U.S. citizenship in five years, then bring the rest of her family from Sudan to America. "Cleveland is very, very nice because people are very good here. Everything is safe here," she said. "I'm very happy to be here."

Doctor from Sudan fears repercussions from Trump's immigration ban
A nephrology fellow at Case Western Reserve University said he is uncertain about what effect President Donald Trump's order on immigration. Watch video CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Dr. Mohamed Abdalla is a nephrology fellow at Case Western Reserve University, a Sudan native and a permanent U.S. resident. For now, he knows he can stay in the United States, but President Donald Trump's ban on travel from seven Muslim majority countries has him worried about himself, his family and scores of others already here or with plans to emigrate here. "We're still confused about what exactly to do. It is still a very chaotic situation," he said Wednesday after his shift at University Hospitals ended and while he worked at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. Abdalla expects to graduate from Case in June and planned to invite his father and father-in-law from Sudan to the ceremony. That likely won't happen now. The order also means he and his family can't travel to Sudan for vacation this summer, Abdalla said. "This is a summer vacation and we need the kids to know their relatives, their cousins and their grandparents," he said. Abdalla is one of many medical professionals and students whose future in the United States is unclear in the wake of Trump's order. Cleveland is a city with three major teaching hospitals that regularly employ residents from overseas. The 40-year-old Abdalla is one of several Sudanese doctors in the city who are affected by Trump's order. Cleveland Clinic resident Dr. Suha Abushamma was detained in New York on Saturday before being put on a plane to Saudi Arabia. Abushamma was here on a work visa but claimed in a lawsuit that immigration officials misled her into signing forms to invalidate her visa. The Clinic, along with Abushamma's lawyers, are working to bring her back to the U.S. Trump's order included a 90-day travel ban affecting citizens of seven countries, including Sudan. The president has said the order was to prevent a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. The ban affected people with work visas and green cards, though the federal government on Sunday said people with green cards may enter the U.S. Abdalla, a Muslim, does not know Abushamma but expressed concern for her well-being. He said the Islamic State, a terrorist organization that carries out attacks in the name of Islam, has tarnished the reputation of all Muslims, the vast majority who are peaceful. "I think now Muslims all over the world are paying the price for whatever ISIS is doing," Abdalla said. Abdalla has been in the United States since 2010 when he came here on a work visa. He got his green card in 2015. He lives in Westlake with his wife Nada Abdalla and his six children. His wife and three of their children are permanent residents, while their other three children were born in the United States. The family plans to stay in the country after Mohamed Abdalla's fellowship ends. Nada Abdalla said Trump is unpredictable. She worries his actions may affect more than just traveling outside the U.S. She said she plans to become a citizen and worries that might not be possible under this president. She said she and her husband have been glued to CNN when they are both at home. "He is very worried," she said. "I'm a stay-at-home mom, so my worries are contained in the house. I'm pretty sure he worries outside the house more than me." Both said they have has never been hassled about their religion in the United States. Nada Abdalla said she answered a question on a form when applying for her visa in 2010. She wears a hijab so her faith is obvious, but she said it has never caused concern. Mohamed Abdalla said this kind of treatment is why they came to the United States. "Because of the freedom," he said. "So now we have to fight for freedom in our country and here." He expressed concern for fellow medical professionals from Sudan and other banned countries who either are here or want to come here. Interviews for this year's residency program, which are conducted for March, are also up in the air for many applicants in the countries listed in Trump's order. Mohamed Abdalla said he was not sure how program directors for the teaching hospitals in the Cleveland area would react to Trump's order. At least one local hospital, the MetroHealth System, has appeared to acknowledge the trouble prospective foreign medical residents might face. Marcie Becker, the hospital's director of international affairs and graduate medical education, said in a Jan. 26 email to her employees that any doctors matched with the hospital from those seven countries may not be able to come to the U.S. until visa applications are being processed again. Mohamed Abdalla stuck up for Sudan multiple times during his interview, saying many people who emigrate from the country contribute great things to the United States. "That's good for them. That's good for their families. That's good for the country," he said. "That's even good for the United States because they contribute. Whenever somebody gets something from here and he leaves or stays here, still his contribution is there somewhere."
