"While fighting a massive development project in Orinda, a bedroom community to which her family moved in 1990, Yeh began to focus on the environmental consequences of unchecked growth. "I love open space. I love nature," says Yeh, who uses her original name in her work with the Diversity Alliance. "But one day it dawned on me: If we keep adding immigrants, they've got to live somewhere." She continues, "Even the poor ones are using more resources here than in their native lands. Go to Costco. Look at those immigrants. What are they buying? Boom boxes, hi-fis, televisions. They drive SUVs. Did they have those goods in their home countries? I doubt it."

Thanks for digging up and spreading some ignorant crap from 2011.

Exactly. You support yockeyist third position fascist groups. You can sound as lefty greenie as it takes to get support. Bottomline: get the jews. "The jewish capitalist has created sprawl and bad public transit and inefficient city planning that oppresses asians, trans, and people of color." They call it the "alt left". No joke. You know what it is as you are a nazi liar.

It boggles my mind how people from somewhere other than California:

Move to the bay, decide it's too crowded, and that no one new should be able to move there or build.

It's that whole transplant "I got mine, keep out" mentality that really has ruined the bay in the last 20 years.

I mean I could see if she lived in Brentwood and thought it would stay a farm town. But they don't build too much in Orinda. It's 2016 not 1966.

She's not a transplant from another part of the US, she immigrated to the US from Taiwan in 1980. In the interview she said the development she opposed was defeated. I don't think Orinda is as overdeveloped as other parts of the Bay Area, but some areas that are the most pro-immigration such as the Silicon Valley are wall to wall suburbia. I think Yeh is in Idaho now, but I can understand since the Bay Area's housing cost are so high.

Sounds very anti-semitic.

"It was America, and a "nice Jewish fellow" she met on a Sierra Club hike in Northern California's Redwood State Park, that ended her nomadic life. Yeh Ling-Ling became Suzanne Feinberg, and for 10 years-with time off to have a son, now 18-she worked as a paralegal at firms specializing in immigration law. She helped new arrivals get whatever they required to stay in their adopted homeland."

Agreed. But in all fairness, it isn't just the transplants with the "I got mine" mentality.
