Soyinka to Face Criminal Charges If He Destroys His Green Card? U.S. Immigration Lawyers Speaks Out

In an exclusive disclosure to Premium Times, U.S. immigration experts revealed that the United States government will not bring any civil or criminal charges against Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, if he eventually destroys his American green card as openly threatened in the media.



The publication reported further that the Immigration Lawyers said that the legendary playwright will still be able to visit the United States at any time he desires even after destroying his green card before the public glare.

There have been reports that Nigerian professor, Wole Soyinka faces a jail term should he destroy his green card after stating a fortnight ago that he would destroy his green card if Donald Trump was elected president.

“The moment they announce his [Trump’s] victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up,” Soyinka told a gathering at Oxford University in what appeared like a casual observation about the tone of the American campaign at the time.

In separate interviews, Immigration attorneys, Isaac Falusi and Samuel Adewusi, disclosed that the controversies surrounding the decision of the professor are inconsequential in the U.S.

Speaking to a correspondent, Falusi, an expert in immigration and international trade law, said Soyinka would have merely exercised his free speech by destroying his green card.

“Destroying a green card is an expression of free speech which no one will ever be penalised for in America. Being a resident in America is a voluntary thing. The government gave him the green card because he was qualified when he applied for it,” Falusi said.

The lawyer said the U.S. Homeland Security, which handles such documents, may not even be aware of the controversy and even if it were, it still won’t mean an action will be taken.

“If he has made a public show of destroying his card, that doesn’t mean the Homeland Security is aware of it. But even if they were, he will still be able to easily obtain another green card because his name is still on the computer as a valid American resident,” Falusi said.

Meanwhile, Adewusi who is Chairman of the Board of Trustee of the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation in the Americas, stated that “in order to destroy your green card you have to go to a consulate near you, especially if you’re outside the United States.”

“At the consulate, you must request for and fill a document called Form I-407. It is a long process but only after you complete before you could boldly say that you have destroyed your access to enter America.”

He echoed Falusi’s position that Soyinka’s action is strictly an exercise of his free speech. “It’s more of a free speech the same way people burn flags and their passports. No one will penalise him for anything,” Adewusi said.
