The Pirates of the Caribbean actor has been living in Belize since leaving the Middle East in 2017 for fear of being prosecuted in the UK, where other returning YPG hunters have been accused of terrorism and have been told by US authorities that he has his US visa had exceeded.

Just a few days after Trump withdrew support from Kurdish hunters in northern Syria, Enright expressed his love for America and asked the president to take him home.

& # 39; The reason I went to Syria in the first place is because I love America. When I saw Jihiadi John behead the American journalist James Foley, I had to act. I couldn't sit back and do nothing.

& # 39; I have been fighting for more than two years to help free Syria from the evil ISIS forces and now I just want to return to America, where I have lived 30 years of my life and where I have many ties and many friends. & # 39;

He entered a cruel war zone, sharing videos about firing his AK-47, preparing mortars and looking for cover for sniper fire during intense battles against the ISIS stronghold, Raqqa.

Enright said he had decided to participate in the fight against ISIS as a volunteer after reading about their rape and slaughter of the Yazidis, an ethnic minority in Syria and Iraq.

The actor wanted to avenge the hundreds of Yazidi women who were captured by ISIS hunters and kept as sex slaves.

Enright, who grew up in the rugged estates of Moss Side, Manchester, was furious with the ISIS terrorist attack on the Manchester Arena during an Ariana Grande concert in May 2017.

In a video on Facebook the day after the explosion in which 23 people died and 250 were injured during the concert, Enright said: “I'm used to a lot of deaths, I'm used to a lot of terrorist attacks, but it's a different connotation if it's my home town …

& # 39; When I go to Raqqa, I don't give them 15 minutes. I will not expect so much mercy from them and I will not give them so much mercy, so much that I can promise you. I will remember Manchester. & # 39;

Enright said some soldiers misjudged him because he is a Hollywood actor. He said, however, that he was helping his team identify a prisoner as ISIS hunter Abed al Rahman, who used the adopted name Abu Abdullah

He claims that an official told him that if he helped & # 39; a villain & # 39; to catch him back into the US.

Enright said he returned to Syria in 2016 and gathered information to give to US officials.

"I returned to Syria – only this time I was not only a soldier, I also did my own James Bond thing," Enright told The Sun.

He helped interrogate ISIS prisoners and handed over names and signatures of those he said were American, Canadian, and Australian.

The former actor said that he left Syria for good in November 2017 but still has not received permission to enter the US despite handing over information.
