The United States, under the administration of President Trump, is set to push its immigration policy changes further. Mr Trump's aggressive move for immigration policy changes has caused a lot of controversies in the United States. In a recent development, moving forward with the changes could hold serious implications for Vietnamese refugees who have been in the country for decades. Some of these refugees could end up being deported. Last year, attempts were made by the US government to deport some from Cambodia, Vietnam and some other Southeast Asian countries who have been in the country for a long time. The government tagged them, violent criminal aliens. The situation faded away after some time but has now gathered pace. The executive director of the San Jose-based Asian Law Alliance, Richard Konda, said the situation is alarming considering why the refugees came into the country in the first place - to escape prosecution. He recalled how America spent a lot, both in cash and lives, to stem communism in south Asia after which many Vietnamese came into the US as refugees and agreement was made not to deport people that entered the country before 1995.
