Ep. 02: Vietnamese Anti-Deportation w/ Phi Nguyen, Litigation Director for Advancing Justice ATL

In this interview with Phi Nguyen, we discuss her path into law, intensified efforts by ICE to target, detain, and deport the Vietnamese community, how the U.S. is violating the Repatriation Agreement through unlawful detention of pre-1995 Vietnamese immigrants, the "closed door" nature of government negotiations, a punitive immigration system, and Phi's experiences working with detained people.
