Cambodian refugee deported 2 years ago set to return to US

A Cambodian refugee who says he was wrongly deported nearly two years ago is reuniting with his family in Massachusetts.

Supporters say 50-year-old Thy Chea, of Lowell, is expected to arrive at Boston’s Logan Airport on Wednesday after getting his green card reinstated last year.

His family, which includes a son born after he was deported, is planning to greet him at the airport, along with other supporters from Lowell, an old mill city near the New Hampshire state line that is the center of the nation’s second-largest Cambodian community.
