A special episode of the Law Enforcement Today Radio Show from the roof of the building overlooking the U.S. Capitol Building at 400 North Capitol Street in Washington D.C. This was at the Federation For American Immigration Reform's annual Feet 2 the Fire Radio Row event. We were one of 66 radio shows invited.
Our guest Tony Pham was born in South Vietnam two years before the fall of Saigon. Like many other freedom-seeking Vietnamese, his family fled the communist regime in 1975. As a young child, Mr. Pham witnessed his parents sacrifice tremendously to rebuild their lives in a new and wonderful country. In 1985, the Phams were rewarded with their naturalized citizenship. Mr. Pham watched his parents work relentlessly as laborers to support a family and to put him through school at the College of William and Mary and then the University of Richmond School of Law.
In 2020, Mr. Pham was appointed Principal Legal Advisor for ICE and later that year was named Acting Director of ICE later that year. In his capacity as Acting Director of ICE, Mr. Pham worked to ensure that the nation’s immigration laws were enforced in so-called sanctuary jurisdictions that harbor criminal aliens.
