Bamba is a Louisvillian of true grace and worthy of our emulation. He loves all people and exudes kindness, patience, gentleness, and love. Those of us who know him are grateful to call him friend.

Bamba legally entered the United States in 2000 as an immigrant from Senegal. For the last twelve years, Bamba has been employed with the same company, earning accomplishments and awards along the way. These accomplishments include being named Employee of the Year, Trainer of the Year, and being awarded the Spirit Award. Bamba has trained over 200 people in his role. Bamba is an asset and a positive influence on his place of employment, and his community at large.

Since entering the country in 2000, Bamba has pursued his dream to become an American citizen. Unfortunately, it appears it may become a dream deferred.

Bamba was surprisingly taken by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency on January 30. Initially, ICE detaining Bamba in Oldham County, but he has since been moved to an immigration detention center in Florence, KY.

An immigration attorney has been retained for Bamba to fight his detention and detainer. As the fight for Bamba’s freedom continues costs, fees, and other necessities will arise. We, Bamba’s friends, coworkers, allies, and advocates kindly request you considering funding these ongoing needs via a donation.
