In today’s polit­i­cal cli­mate, immi­gra­tion is often dis­cussed with­in the con­text of who deserves” to be here ver­sus who does not. Many politi­cians have strayed away from address­ing immi­gra­tion as a human­i­tar­i­an issue alto­geth­er. Stereo­typ­ing of immi­grants isnt new ” its a part of a much longer his­to­ry of crim­i­nal­iz­ing immi­grants and refugees in the Unit­ed States. This episode explores the expe­ri­ences of a Cam­bo­di­an refugee who got caught up in the crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem at a young age. Bil­ly Taing shares his sto­ry of flee­ing the Khmer Rouge and reset­tling in Amer­i­ca with his fam­i­ly, only to con­tin­ue fac­ing hardship.
