The SF Bay Guardian has an article on a Pakistani man living in the U.S. who faces deportation, which could very well result in his death. Unfortunately, the article doesn't go into why he's facing this deportation, just focusing on his life, and while I'm very aware that there's a lot screwed up with the immigration situation in the United States I'd have liked to see a little more detail about what issues lead to this particular problem.

A couple of links away from the sfbg page is this page, http://www.sflnc.com/index/readthis/news/kj/86.html, which describes him as undocumented (usu. this means he overstayed a tourist visa) in which case deportation is routine. But he's applied for asylum, which ought to be granted.
