Asian Americans Stepping Up for Immigration Reform

8A-2013-08-19-SCPRimmgrationreformFrom the Southern California Public Radio:

“About 55 percent of Asian-American immigration into the United States has been due to family preferences… More young Asian-Americans who grew up in the U.S. without papers have been going public with their status, as have young Latinos and other activists.”

But a lot of the issues around the current reform doesn’t address family immigration. Asian Americans are stepping up to advocate for these realities and helping to shape the conversation since “Immigration from Asia recently surpassed new arrivals from Latin America, with Asians becoming the nation’s fastest-growing racial group.”

About Mihee

Mihee lives in the Mid-West with her husband, toddler-aged twins (yes, terrible twos is actually a thing), and baby #3. Though her reserve of brain cells is seriously depleted she is still passionate about Asian American culture, religion and social justice for marginalized people, stories about Korea, sports, and power naps. During the day, she spends a lot of time trying to remember which baby needs to eat or get a diaper change, mentoring and ministering to college students, occasionally taking a walk, writing, watching Sportscenter, or grabbing coffee.
