8 Khmerican Criminals in Minnesota Are Fighting Deportation To Cambodia

Postby CEOCambodiaNews » Wed Mar 08, 2017 6:58 pm

Cambodia doesn’t want Minnesotans if it means splitting up families

Eight Minnesota men were arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement almost six months ago, to be deported to Cambodia for various crimes they committed in youth.

In each of the cases, the men had never actually set foot in Cambodia, and have few remaining connections there. They had been born in refugee camps in neighboring countries to parents fleeing the post-Vietnam War Cambodian genocide. After the war, when the U.S. opened its doors to Cambodians who had aided U.S. soldiers, the men followed their parents to Minnesota.

Cambodian Avoids US Expulsion While Others Await Deportation
March 10, 2017

A Cambodian man who faced deportation from the U.S. has been released from detention and returned to his family, while at least five others have been told they will be sent to Cambodia in the coming weeks, a U.S.-based advocacy organization said.

Ched Nin, one of the “Minnesota 8,” a high-profile group of Cambodians under threat of deportation, was released on February 24 after a U.S. immigration judge granted him a family hardship waiver, according to a statement by the Southeast Asia Resource Action Center released on Wednesday. The group said five of the eight had been notified of their upcoming deportation...

From the OP article :
Growing up, they faced poverty, racism, and gang recruitment. Each had gotten into trouble with the law and served time for their crimes. They were flagged for deportation, but because Cambodia did not have an agreement with the United States to accept deportees until 2002, there was nowhere to deport them.

Years passed, and the men became productive members of society. They married American women, raised American children, and provided for their aging parents.

In August 2016, the men, dubbed the Minnesota 8, were re-arrested because the U.S. government believed that diplomatic conditions with Cambodia were ripe for finally processing their deportation orders.

Five Cambodians Deported From US Arrive in Phnom Penh
March 30, 2017

Five Cambodians expelled from the U.S. arrived in Phnom Penh on Wednesday, a U.S. Embassy spokesman said, as Cambodia continued to call for revisions to the 2002 agreement with the U.S. that allowed their deportation.

“Five Cambodian citizens were returned to Cambodia today by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security,” embassy spokesman Jay Raman said in an email. “The returnees were subject to lawful removal orders issued by a U.S. immigration judge.”

The deportees—including four from a high-profile group of eight Cambodians living in Minnesota for whom their families and refugee advocates have fought for months in the hopes of halting their deportations—are the first to be repatriated since September.

The five men are among more than 30 Cambodians the government said last month it would accept for repatriation from the U.S...

This is the way it should be. Enough of this not enforcing immigration laws. And this isn't the first time this has happened and there have been documentaries about this. For whatever reasons, these Khmer "Americans" pick up the black thug culture and they run with it. In fact, most of them speak just like black thugs and wear their pants around their knees just like the black thugs do. Heck, if you didn't see a picture of these Khmer thugs and only listened to them speak, you'd think they WERE blacks. I say good riddance. And for all you bleeding heart liberals, go cry me a river if you don't like it because I couldn't care less.

I'm thinking about it but haven't made up my mind. Why? Right now I'm starting to think Australia or New Zealand might be my next move so I have some decisions to make. What do you like about Cambodia?
