In 2002, the United States began deporting criminal Cambodian-American refugees who were "lawful permanent residents" of the U.S. back to Cambodia. Most of the men were toddlers and infants when their families fled from the genocide Khmer Rouge. They were convicted of aggravated felonies, which can range from murder and rape to burglary and forgery, and deported after serving their sentences in the U.S. About 200 Cambodian-American men have been deported to date. 1,700 face deportation orders 1,800 or so may be eligible for deportation but have not been charged.
