Local DJ Thisaphone Sothiphakhak is fighting for his citizenship.
He and his family fled to the United States from a refugee camp in Thailand when he was just 2-years-old. Now, he has discovered that his father -- who passed away when he was a young boy -- never completed the process of making him a U.S. citizen. He lost his job at Wells Fargo because of the matter and is now scraping to get by.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar's office is helping him try to figure out his paperwork.
"I can't think of anything more American than fighting to be an American," Sothiphakhak told WCCO.
An online petition has been set up to help Sothiphakhak get help from the U.S. government.
