Journalist Andy Ngo, whose parents fled to the US from Vietnam in 1978, has become a political refugee himself, fleeing to London, saying he received death threats from Antifa over his coverage of the movement.

“For a number of months now, there's just been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by Antifa extremists to kill me,” the Portland native said Saturday night in a Sky News interview.

“It's pained me a lot, temporarily having to leave the country and home that settled my parents who came there as political refugees,” Ngo added.

Ngo came to increased prominence after he was attacked by a mob of Antifa protesters in 2019.
