3/21 Of all migrants to the U.S., 40% come from Asia, and out of 18 million Asian Americans in the country, 1.7 million are undocumented. Undocumented status in the U.S. is a civil, not criminal, violation.

At the same time, Southeast Asians and Pacific Islanders are deported at a rate of three times more than that of immigrants as a whole.
