Undocumented Cambodian man is freed from ICE custody and given green card
by KhmerLife on May 13, 2019
For the first time in nearly 20 years, Hay Hov has a green card.
Hov, a Cambodian refugee from Oakland who was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in March, has been freed from a facility in Bakersfield and is no longer at risk of deportation, his attorney said.
The Chronicle�highlighted his story days before he and dozens of others across the U.S. were detained�by ICE, amid an uptick in the arrests of Cambodians who committed crimes long ago and subsequently lost their green cards.
