DETROIT – A Kenyan who graduated from a Michigan college and wrote a book about his conversion to Christianity has lost his bid to remain in the U.S. A federal appeals court has refused to overturn a decision to send Hussein Wario back to Kenya. Wario has said he fears persecution there because of his conversion from Islam. But the appeals court says Kenya is a predominantly Christian country and Wario can live there while avoiding his hometown.

The 35-year-old Wario entered the United States to attend Hope College in Holland, Michigan. He graduated in 2000 and wrote a book last year, titled Cracks in the Crescent, about his conversion to Christianity.

He was targeted for deportation because he’s no longer a student.

It wasn’t immediately clear where Wario now lives.
