Cambodian Son: Discussion around Immigration and Exile

William H. Gates Hall

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Come discuss the immigration issues portrayed in Cambodian Son with Many Uch and other panelists.

Many Uch, like Kosal Kiev, was one of many young cambodian refugees in the US who faced deportation as a result of criminal gang activity. He served his time, and decided to fight deportation with the help of Federal Public Defender, Jay Stansell.

This should be a great discussion for those interested in the fairness of the immigration system, and what it means to face deportation to a "home" you did not grow up in and have no connections to.
