Forty-four members of Congress, as well as Amnesty International and other groups, are urging the Trump administration to block the imminent deportation of a Ugandan pastor, saying he will likely be killed if sent back home. Pastor Steven Tendo fled Uganda and sought asylum in the United States in 2018 after being tortured and arrested dozens of times in Uganda for supporting political prisoners and voting rights. During one torture session, two of his fingers were cut off. Tendo has been jailed for over 18 months while seeking asylum in the United States.
