A Cambodian American who can never ‘go home’

"Sam's first memory is riding a sledge in the snow on the way to primary school in New Hampshire.  His favourite film is Scarface and in breaks during our conversation, he raps Tupac lyrics. He loves skateboarding and going to the gym.  There are millions of American 20-somethings just like Sam but unlike them, Sam can never set foot in the US again.  Two-and-a-half years ago, Sam was deported from the US to Cambodia, a country he had never even visited before." - BBC News, Apr. 6, 2012.
