Background
Tony D. Le, along with his sister, came to the U.S. in 1989 after fleeing Vietnam. Le spent two weeks in Cambodia, followed by two years in Phanat Nikhom refugee camp in Thailand and six months in Bataan refugee camp in the Philippines. His father first attempted to come to the U.S. in 1983 or 1984 on a sponsorship from his brother, but he only arrived in the U.S. in 1993, after his children arrived.
