Pledge Your Support to End Southeast Asian Deportations

DHS Secretary Mayorkas

For the past two decades, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Lao, and Hmong migrants have been unjustly targeted with detention and deportation. As many are refugees, they have been resettled in and lived in the United States over the past 46 years because they were displaced by the devastation of U.S. imperialism in the war in Southeast Asia.

After generations of trauma and displacement, our communities are again facing such violence from immigration authorities. We demand an immediate end to the violence of deportation.

Sign this pledge to stay connected to our national campaign to end Southeast Asian deportations.

Deportation does not create safer communities. Instead, it rips families apart and ruptures the connections we rely on as migrants to thrive. Our lives are not disposable. We are worthy of dignity.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has long proven that it is a site of abuse, not justice. After family separation, inadequate healthcare, multiple deaths in ICE custody, ongoing neglect during a pandemic, and attempted cover-ups to shirk accountability, it is clear that detaining and deporting a human being is subjecting them to unjust cruelty.

The Department of Homeland Security must end the practice of deporting Southeast Asian migrants.

I am a constituent and a concerned human being, urging you to address the injustices faced by Southeast Asians.

Southeast Asian communities are being ripped apart by deportation, even after decades of war trauma. These deportations often send people to countries they've never known. The families impacted by these deportations are left with a cycle of grief and poverty as it becomes more difficult to make ends meet. We want our people home. We want dignity. I call on you to end ICE's practice of deporting Southeast Asian immigrants.
