RELEASE MN 8 formed in 2016 when 8 lawful permanent resident men of Southeast Asian descent were detained and threatened with deportation to Cambodia. 2018 saw another surge of deportations of people who had never been in Cambodia, having come to the US with parents from refugee camps at a young age. Along with SEARAC - Southeast Asia Resource Action Center - RELEASE MN8 continues to be an active voice for those facing the horrors of detention and deportation to Southeast Asian countries.
