LOS ANGELES - Cambodian refugees detained in recent raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have filed a nationwide class action lawsuit challenging their unlawful arrests. Since early October, ICE has rounded up over a hundred Cambodian refugees with deportation orders, making these the largest raids ever to target the Cambodian community. Nearly 2000 Cambodian refugees are at risk of being unlawfully arrested.

The lawsuit was filed by civil rights organizations Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus (Advancing Justice - ALC), Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles (Advancing Justice - LA), and Sidley Austin LLP.
