An October 15, 2020 issue of The Guardian Post Daily, a Cameroonian newspaper, alleged that people deported from the US were “supposed supporters of the Ambazonia separatist movement.” Human Rights Watch research indicates that many Cameroonians denied asylum and deported from the US in October and November 2020 had credible asylum claims. Those interviewed said they had never supported armed separatist groups.  Negative media coverage amplified the risks deported asylum seekers faced.
