No Green Card Necessary

Thursday, July 24, 2008

So let me see if I get this straight. You're an Asian immigrant with a green card. You've done your due diligence and did everything you should have. You've abided by the law.

Everything's good right?

Apparently not, because under Schwarzenegger's plan you're going to be treated like someone who's here illegally and get denied health benefits:

Sherry Hirota -- CEO of Asian Health Services, which sponsored the event -- said, "With this budget, Asian Health Services alone would lose up to $1.5 million and be forced to close some clinics and lay off staff." She added, "This is unfair to the Asian community. More than 75% of Asian and Pacific Islanders in California are foreign-born. These cuts aimed at new legal immigrants will disproportionately impact the Asian community".
You's think that Schwarzenegger would get it - himself being an immigrant -- but I guess he's just another white politician who couldn't care less about the Asian immigrants.

Just another day in white people's land.
