Jul 24 How Strong Love Can Be
Vanuyen Pham

Being political and advocating for change is not exactly what my parents wanted for me. What they don’t understand is that I want to do this because they can’t. I want to be sure their stories and the stories of my community are heard. I am honored to be here at SEARAC, where I am surrounded by people who also care deeply about advocating for their communities.

St. Paul, MN - Mobilized by the #ReleaseMN8 campaign, over 70 community members gathered at Ramsey County Attorney John Choi's office today to demand that he reduce Chamroeun Phan's 365-day prison sentence by one day, which would guarantee him automatic relief from deportation.

SEARAC denounces the Trump administration for threatening to use visa sanctions to punish the countries of Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone for delaying deportations from the United States. A group of U.S. deportees in Cambodia led a strong campaign this year to pressure Cambodia to stop all deportations from the U.S., effectively halting the issuance of travel documents a number of times in the past year.
