Like many refugee families, we grew up in the housing projects. There are two major housing projects in Saint Paul, Minnesota: McDonough and Mt. Airy.  We lived in the McDonough projects with my grandparents and some extended relatives.

We have great news!  Because of a groundswell of community support and broad-based advocacy, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) granted Touch Hak a one-year stay of removal! Touch was scheduled to be deported to Cambodia on September 4, 2014, but instead was released from the South Texas Detention Facility last week and allowed to travel home to California to be with his family for one year.

We recently learned that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may deport Touch Hak to Cambodia by the end of August.  Call: ICE Deputy Director Daniel Ragsdale at 202-732-3000
