Osime Brown is 21, autistic, and Black. As a teen, he was pulled from his loving home and placed into foster care. One day, when older boys from his group home stole a cell phone, he tried to stop them. He was given a five year prison sentence for theft.
In prison, he has been severely mistreated, bullied, and abused.
Now, the UK government wants to deport him to Jamaica where he knows no one or nothing.
