    This is a video letter addressed to the President of the United States of America, the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Senate, and the U.S. Supreme Court from a group of Khmer Exiled Americans (K.E.A.s). This video letter was filmed in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on March 7th, 2012. This video was intended to be shown at "Champions of Change" event at the White House in April. Our previous video "My Asian Americana" was a finalist for the White House AAPI's "What's Your Story" video contest. We won the highest popular votes by a landslide. But the White House decided to disregard the votes and silence our voice in this election year. They formally refused to invite our movement's representative to the event. Despite the fraudulent treatment, we seek to inform the public of the devastating effects of so called "criminal alien deportation" which allows no appeal in the court. Many of the deportees, whom we began to call "exiles", were living respectable lives after their incarceration, having their own business, going to school, starting their own family. And one day, I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) would come pick them up, detain them in some cases up to 2-3 years without any charge or trial, and send them back to their supposed homeland, like Cambodia, leaving wives, husbands, fathers, mothers, and their young children in utter financial and psychological devastation. Often these K.E.A.s (Khmer Exiled Americans) had never seen Cambodia until they were escorted off the airplane by the agents at the Phnom Penh International Airport. Please ask the White House why they try to silence this issue in manners that do not honor democracy.

        Courage comes in many different forms. For Esmeralda, a transgender asylum seeker from Mexico, who faced horrific circumstances in immigration detention, it came in the form of seeking justice. Kept in a segregated cell with other transgender detainees, Esmeralda never realized that her experience in detention would match the trauma of discrimination she had faced back home. But her story is also one of hope in its desire to create change. Take action now at www.restorefairness.org. www.breakthrough.tv

          An animated documentary following the struggle of Serigne Tacko Mbengue, an asylum seeker forced to flee his country. After travelling to the UK, Mbengue hoped to finally find acceptance for his ‘crime’ of being gay. Now living in the UK, Mbengue is a spokesperson for the organisation ‘Movement for justice: By Any Means Necessary’. A campaign fighting against the racism, homophobia and discrimination of immigrants. In his own words, this film is an attempt to give people like Mbengue a chance to have their stories heard. A chance for a life of equality and a chance to have A Voice. http://www.movementforjustice.org/ Filmmaker's blog: http://cisellefung.blogspot.co.uk/

                www.josephrochlitz.com THE RIGHTEOUS ENEMY At the height of World War II, while the Nazis and most of their allies were deporting and exterminating the Jews of Europe, some 40,000 found protection in the most unlikely of places – territories occupied by the army of Fascist Italy. In areas under their occupation in Croatia, France and Greece, Italian soldiers and diplomats firmly refused to collaborate in the “Final Solution,” despite orders from Mussolini himself to comply with the German requests. This documentary film takes the form of a personal investigation by the director, Joseph Rochlitz, whose father, Imre Rochlitz was saved by the Italians in occupied Croatia. The film widens out to describe the Italian rescue efforts in France and Greece from 1941 to 1943, and seeks to understand the motives behind this extraordinary Italian attitude. The film includes rare interviews with some of the protagonists of the Italian rescue efforts, as well as the testimony of Jews saved by their actions. Historical consultants appearing in the film are Menahem Shelah (Yad Vashem, Israel) and Serge Klarsfeld, the French lawyer and historian.
