Angola Immigration Detention

Angola’s migratory situation has been dramatically effected by its three-decades-long civil war, which came to an end in 2002. The war forced hundreds of thousands of Angolans to flee the country. At the same time, the Angolan government has taken steps to crack down in irregular migrants on its territory, reportedly deporting some 70,000 Congolese during 2010
