On Writ of Certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit Brief Amici Curiae of International Human Rights Organizations and International Law Professors in Support of the Petitioner
- "When a country lacks a functioning central government, basic human rights cannot be enforced. Such is the current situation in Somalia. Amici submit this brief in support of petitioner’s claim that the United States may not presently deport him to Somalia. As the United States concedes, Somalia has no government that can accept petitioner’s return."
