Cambodian Refugees Who Escaped the Killing Fields Now Face Deportation from ICE

Advocates representing Cambodian Americans and supporters from across the United States are protesting the recent arrest of two refugees who fled Cambodia decades ago.

Saman Pho, a 43-year-old construction worker and father of four from Oakland and Sakun Phok, a grandfather in San Jose, were reportedly ordered to report to U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement on Sansome Street on Thursday morning.

After it was later found out that the two were detained at noon, activists and community members camped outside ICE headquarters in San Francisco to demand their release.
