U.K. Lesbian Fears Deportation to Jamaica

The brother of 22-year-old U.K. lesbian Coletane Lopez is pleading for immigration officials to stall her impending deportation to Jamaica, where he says she will likely be killed for her sexual orientation.

 

 “We’ve got terrorists [in the U.K.] that are making suicide bombs. They’ve been in prison, they come out and they can’t deport them because of human rights. What about her human rights? That’s the frustrating thing about it,” her brother Nestfield Lopez told Black British newspaper The Voice. "She said, 'I’m going to kill myself because if I get sent home, I’m going to get killed anyway.'"
