Publisher's Summary

Asylum Denied is the gripping story of political refugee David Ngaruri Kenney's harrowing odyssey through the world of immigration processing in the United States. Kenney, while living in his native Kenya, led a boycott to protest his government's treatment of his fellow farmers. He was subsequently arrested and taken into the forest to be executed. This audiobook, told by Kenney and his lawyer, Philip G. Schrag, from Kenney's own perspective, tells of his near-murder, imprisonment, and torture in Kenya; his remarkable escape to the United States; and the obstacle course of ordeals and proceedings he faced as U.S. government agencies sought to deport him to Kenya.

A story of courage, love, perseverance, and legal strategy, Asylum Denied brings to life the human costs associated with our immigration laws and suggests reforms that are desperately needed to help other victims of human rights violations.

Best book I’ve ever read

Jeff has the most inspiring and frustrating story I’ve ever read. I am interested in asylum law, and this book was a phenomenal dive into the legal minutia about applying for asylum and a very real story about Jeff’s journey to live in America.

Recommended by Wayne Law Faculty

As a soon-to-be law student, this book was recommended to me as a “must-read” by a Wayne State Law faculty member. I am inspired by David’s story and shocked at the injustices he faced. The performance of this audio book is wonderful - one of the best I’ve heard since joining audible a year ago. Read this if you have any interest in law or the US asylum process.
