Montagnard talks

A team from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) visited Phnom Penh in late

June to interview the remaining Montagnard refugees who fled Vietnam in 2001. DHS,

which has taken over immigration duties in the US, processed the remaining 32 refugees'

asylum claims. A US Embassy spokesperson said it was unclear whether they would be

resettled in America. More than 900 Montagnards fled here to escape persecution in

Vietnam-most have been resettled in the US.
