100 Khmers to return

The Post has learned that around 100 Khmer-Americans will soon be deported from the

US after committing crimes there. The two governments agreed recently to return the

convicts after initial efforts to do so were rejected by the Cambodian government.

Since last year's terrorist attacks the US has taken a tougher line on criminals

who are "aliens": foreign citizens who are granted green cards, but not

US citizenship.
