'I can't find any peace here': Raised in the U.S. and deported to Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

If immigration is profitable deportations should stop. Deport scumbags not entrepreneurs.

so, when thailand deports thousands of Khmers....you all get up on the same high horse???
you are the same people who publish pictures of expats being deported from Cambodia for overstaying a visa...
the scumbags in power for decades in the USA created these laws...
law enforcement is simply enforcing laws that they had no part enacting..
blaming President Trump just shows how ignorant and misguided you are..
You have this theory that an immigrant...legal or illegal should have more rights than a citizen...
Perhaps, you should self deport yourselves in solidarity with these people?

Well a lot of the "entrepreneurs" seem to be involved in illegal gambling, drug traficking, procurement of girls for prostitution(which includes running a lady bar), working without a work permit, running a business without registering it or paying tax/vat and a fair few other illegal acts of varying degrees of severity.
As the american stance seems to be deport for getting a traffic violation it might be appropriate for the Cambodian governemtn to respond in kind. Fight fire with fire

America is built on immigrants, whether a man is a millionaire or a garbage man is his a man and deserves equal justice. Does breaking up a family serve the nation better ? The man the article is written about killed a man. However he did it as a child and as such his criminal record in most states would be sealed. Iknow many Americans agree with the caging of child illegal immigrants and the separation of family units as a deterrent to coming to America without the proper consent. I was raised with the maxim "the measure of a mani is his willingness to be kind", While certainly out of fashion, this maxim has served me well and I truly believe it to be true. Is America a safer place with the subject deported ? I sincerely doubt it. Does it play well to the supporters of the current administration? There is little doubt .

It highlights the benefit of earning your citizenship. Citizenship should be valued, not put off until later.

Had they the gumption to get off their asses and pursue their citizenship then this would be a non issue.

But no, they'd rather mill about with like-minded, shiftless gangbangers, get tattoos, flunk high school, get loaded, give their mothers agita on a daily basis, work menial jobs, sponge off of family, etc, etc, ad infinitum.

Fuck around too much and earn yourself a felony...well it's time to pay the piper and the 'cost' you pay is higher if you're not a citizen.

...I'm pretty sure that if one of these felonies was perpetrated on a loved one of yours, the thought of his subsequent deportation wouldn't tug at your heart-strings too much. Just a guess though.

Are you denigrating all illegal immigrants or just those with felony convictions. You certainly like to paint with a broad brush.

As I have stated elsewhere, middle-class Americans have no idea of either the rigors nor the privations of a ghetto. They only know two things:
1) Don't go there.
2). Don't come from there.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Are you blah blah blah illegal immigrants
My post really wasn't meant as an invitation to engage in a dialogue with you. As I find you off-putting but I was referring mostly to the OP which was dealing with a refugee.

His is a rare case because he committed murder at the age of 14. So he, himself did not have the wherewithal to pursue his own citizenship...

...His family, on the other hand, had 12 fucking years to sort out this young lads status for him. Shame on them.

My heart goes out to the family of the murdered, not this guy and his relatives.

I take it you could always block me couldn t you? If you need instructions, I would be happy to teach you how to do it. As to inviting me to engage in dialogue, perhaps you could be kind enough to mark your posts as to which ones can be commented on. Easy when you post the same slurs on other threads. As to finding me off putting, what a quaint phrase though somewhat dated. I have taken the time to provide you with some current vocabulary that may help. unpleasant, unappealing, uninviting, unattractive, disagreeable, offensive, distasteful, unsavory, unpalatable, unappetizing, objectionable, nasty, disgusting, obnoxious, repellent. I hope this broadens your vocabulary and makes your petty insults more up to date. cheers

Holy shit, you didn't even get past "off-putting".

There was a further substantive discussion to be had, should you have read further, lol.
