Six Bangladeshis were repatriated from the United States. A US special plane was returned to their home country at about 2pm on Tuesday. A source at the airport confirmed the matter.
The returning Bangladeshis said they were sent back by the police of the country after they were arrested for illegally entering the US and not having legal documents. BRAC’s migration program usually provides emergency assistance to returning expatriates safely home with food and water.
Asked about Bangladeshis returning to the United States, Shariful Hassan, head of BRAC’s migration program, said that we received information about 4 Bangladeshis returning from the US on the night of January 5. Not only those, many Bangladeshi are coming back from different countries at different times. They were forced to enter those countries. I know that they go to these countries at a cost of Tk.
Appealing to the foreigners not to go abroad after being persuaded, Shariful Hasan said that European countries are sending back Bangladeshis who do not have valid papers. But the European Union also provides financial assistance for resettlement in these Bangladeshi countries.
Influential countries, including the United States, have to think. Some Bangladeshis returning from the United States said they tried to enter the United States from Brazil for a payment of around two million taka. But the police arrested them and sent them to the country. Some said police had seized them and sent them back to the country after the visa expired in the US.

Earlier, the United States returned the Bangladeshi nationals on November 27, for the same reason. At that time, the United States sent those Indian nationals to that country.
