California Transfers California Firefighter to an ICE Prison

Kao Saelee, who came to the United States as a refugee, fought California wildfires while serving a prison sentence in California. An article from the Guardian features his story and his transfer last month to an ICE prison in Louisiana after completing his sentence. Anoop Prasad, an attorney with the Asian Law Caucus (ALC), is quoted explaining: “His story is similar to that of a lot of south-east Asian refugee youth who got resettled in neighborhoods in California that had really high rates of violence, poverty and incarceration.”
