Spotlight

After an outpouring of community support, Vithea Yung, a Cambodian refugee with paraplegia, was released into the care of his family, rather than being turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after earning release from California state prison.

Vithea and his family members are urging state leaders to pass the VISION Act (AB 937), which would ensure that community members who earn release are reunited with their families and communities.
