Stopping Deportations

Audio not available
This year, the Trump administration has been deporting scores of Cambodian refugees who have been living in this country for decades, citing old criminal convictions for which they’ve served their sentences. The administration is also threatening to deport Vietnamese refugees for the same reason, some of them children of U.S. servicemen. Katrina Dizon Mariategue, director of national policy for the Southeast Asian Resource Action Center, or SEARAC, in Washington DC, discusses the legal strategy for fighting deportations and previews upcoming Senate and House briefings on the issue organized by SEARAC and the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum (NAPAWF).
