Assemblymember Tom Daly Statement on Trump Administration Policy Toward Immigrants from Southeast Asia

For immediate release:

Assemblymember Tom Daly Issued the Following Statement on Trump Administration Policy Toward Immigrants from Southeast Asia

“I firmly oppose the Trump Administration’s efforts to increase deportations of immigrants from Southeast Asia. These immigrants include people I have come to know and respect in Orange County. Many were allies of the United States and fought alongside our soldiers in the war against communists in Vietnam. Based on the Administration’s past actions, I am very concerned that this aggressive policy will result in innocent victims, including some of those very same allies, being deported to Vietnam, where they will likely be treated harshly.”
