Please join us and our community partners in Stockton, Seattle, and Washington, DC on Saturday, June 21st for simultaneous vigils in support of families of Cambodian former refugees who are facing imminent deportation. Touch Hak and dozens of others, including two men from the Stockton area, were detained at the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center last month and processed for deportation to Cambodia. Please come to show your support for them, their wives, children, parents, and communities who are experiencing deep shock and trauma from these detentions and deportations, and show ICE that AAPI immigrant communities and their allies are standing up in Stockton, Seattle, DC, and across the country against deportation.
