Deportation alert for Cambodian community

Daily Kos

Sign the petition. Governor Newsom can stop this. By granting pardons to those who face imminent deportation to Cambodia, he can ensure they will be protected. 

Earlier this year we delivered a letter asking him to be in solidarity with our community. 

Join us to demand he take action to ensure all Cambodian Americans, especially longtime community members like Amlorn Siratana, Hay Hov, and Roeun Pich, get to remain with their loved ones at home in California. 

Sign the petition: Demand Governor Newsom grant pardons to Cambodian Americans in need. Stop the deportations.

Our Message to Governor Gavin Newsom :

We urge you to help keep Cambodian detainees home with their loved ones in California where they belong. Pardon and protect our community members who face imminent deportation, especially individuals like Amlorn Siratana, Hay Hov, and Roeun Pich and others who only know California to be their home.

Scooters "can be very dangerous"


Letter to the editor in today's SF Chronicle:

Electric scooters are showing up in cities across the country and becoming a popular mode of transportation. Unfortunately, injuries associated with them are also becoming popular reasons for why patients end up in my emergency room where I treat broken arms, bad bruises, neck and facial injuries and even see serious head injuries caused by scooter accidents.

While scooters are fun and convenient, they can also be very dangerous if you don’t ride them correctly or follow the rules of the road. The most important thing you can do to avoid serious harm is wear a helmet and always be alert when riding.

As an emergency physician, I’ll always be prepared to treat you if necessary. But being a responsible rider can be your greatest defense from getting injured in the first place.
