Community Advisory on Recent Class Action Lawsuit to Stop Vietnamese Detentions
In February, partners at Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles filed a lawsuit to challenge the illegal detention of Vietnamese refugees who came into the country prior to 1995. This lawsuit follows an unprecedented roundup in the Vietnamese community that began in the spring of 2017. Although a current agreement between the United States and Vietnam states that refugees who came into the country prior to 1995 should not be subject to deportation, we saw many of these exact individuals being detained by ICE.
Read and share this community advisory on the Trinh v. Homan lawsuit from Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles to learn about what this lawsuit means, and AAAJ-LA’s proposed next steps for individuals currently in ICE detention.
