    this is inhumane!

    Cambodian Deportees Leave U.S. For 'Home' They've Never Known - The Atlantic

    "Thuch Sek’s skin is an ink-filled canvas, his Cambodian heritage and American life woven across his back and down his limbs. thug life marks his right forearm; a misspelled tattoo extolling khemer prideblankets his muscled shoulder blades. The 39-year-old was born in a Thai refugee camp to parents fleeing the Khmer Rouge, the brutal regime that in the late 1970s killed nearly a quarter of Cambodia’s population; at the age of 2, he resettled with his family in Philadelphia.

    Until last month, he had never set foot in Cambodia. Then the United States deported him here, to his “home.”"

    If he was a bear being turned loose in Yellowstone; you’d be cheering. Who says you can never go home...?

    "...and at 20 took part in a shooting targeting their local Vietnamese rivals. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter, thereby invalidating his permanent residency, and was jailed for eight years. He was released from prison in 1999; the U.S. deported."

    "Each of the dozen or so deportees I spoke with told me a similar story: They grew up poor, joined gangs out of self-defense, and didn’t know they were once eligible to pursue American citizenship, prior to their criminal convictions. "
