So don't blame your immigration woes and whines on Hispanics.

There are about 1 million Asians living in this country who are undocumented, so comprehensive immigration reform is really key to our community,” said Diane Narasaki, executive director of the Asian Counseling and Referral Service.

McDermott recognized that many who are against immigration reform are focused on Mexicans and Latin Americans. "But if you look around this audience, people come from all over the world," he said.

Thu Van Nguyen, a member of the Asian Pacific Islander Coalition, joined other immigrants on stage to represent the Vietnamese community. She called for immigration reform in her native tongue.

“We have a right to gather and show our legislators what we want,” said Nguyen. “We want our legislators to see we need immigration reform now.”

The title should read that they are here ILLEGALLY not UNDOCUMENTED.. I'm of Asian heritage and the direct descendent of Japanese Immigrants that came to the U.S. LEGALLY.. so, if they are illegal, they should NOT be here..

I am hostile against all illegal aliens; Hispanic, Vietnamese, Irish or otherwise. In other words-------------throw all of those losers out of the USA.

One million Asians, one million others and 10 million Hispanics. Do the math.

Send them all packing. This group will be a little more difficult to purge. Once most of the others are out, ICE can target the more "underground" type of illegals, which Asians mostly are. It can be done quite easily.

Note to Thu Van Nguyen: If you are here illegally, they are not "our legislators"

I for one am sick and tired of identity politics. In Asia, the Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Vietnamese, etc are not lumped together and have little in common. There are some long time historic rivalries between these goups, and in Asia, for the most part, they have no common identity. But leave it to the ethnic grievance groups in the U.S. to invent something called "the Asian community". They make that their prime source of identity and then invent a set of "rights" that they are entitled to. The leaders and organizers of these groups get rich and famous and then get the politicians to kow tow to them and their agendas. Aren't we supposed to be a color blind society? Isn't that what so many of the early civil rights leaders fought for? But now we have to slice and dice the American people into dozens of ethnic/racial/religious groups and invest them with group rights. The American ideal is that individuals are endowed with certain inalienable rights- "All men are created equal". Whatever happened to that?

What happened to that? Well, some of these ethnic groups have decided to separate themselves from mainstream America all by themselves. I would prefer that we all just think of ourselves as Americans and forget about race, skin color, ethnicity but try telling that to those who are doing the dividing by playing victim for their own group. Politically, why are we divided on the illegal immigation issue? Obviously, race and ethnicity trumps the rule of law for some. So there you have it.
