President Donald Trump talks about immigration and border security from the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018.

The Trump administration is re-interpreting an agreement made with Vietnam, that could make thousands of Vietnamese refugees in the U.S. subject to deportation.

The move seems to be in keeping with the administration’s effort to remove undocumented residents who have been convicted of a crime.

Krishnadev Calamur, a staff writer at The Atlantic, has been covering the story and joins Midday Edition on Thursday to discuss the Trump administration's effort.
