Fair Sentencing for Youth

 

   

CARES Call May 15th, 8pm: Phal Sok speaks on his remarkable life & immigration laws in the US

Join the call! Phal was a youth tried as an adult shortly after his father passed away in 1999. He was sentenced to nearly 24 years in prison but became eligible for earlier parole through SB 260 youth parole. He was one of the first non-lifers to be found suitable! However, when paroled, Phal was detained by immigration authorities and ordered deported to Cambodia.  Finally released in March of 2016, he returned home for the first time in 17 years. He’ll share his story with CARES and will also talk about the removal of undocumented people from the US, the privatization of immigration detention centers, and how deportation laws affect the community at large.

Throughout California and the nation, undocumented immigrants are concerned about their future. Undocumented individuals who are convicted of a felony face deportation upon their release from prison. Phal will share his views on how this broken system focuses on people of color and how for many it becomes a second form of punishment.
