An estimated 10,000 Cambodians live in the Bay Area, many of whom came here as children. In her recent book, “Exiled,” journalist Katya Cengel follows four refugee families who fled the Pol Pot regime in the 1970s. We’ll discuss their stories and how they are dealing with the threat of deportation as the White House seeks to remove some protections for immigrants who arrived before 1995.


Katya Cengel, journalist; author,"Exiled: From the Killing Fields of Cambodia to California and Back"<br />
