I wonder how many of them are here illegally? Can you say "indentured servitude"???

The Asians (Chinese) should all go home to celebrate their so called Lunar New year, Year of the Tiger's Ass. Watch out America, the sneeky Chinese are in the US to take over, they already own a big chunk of the USA.

Great...Why is it every time there is an ethnic article, someone on the Internet is compelled to post racist crap that they wouldn't speak of in real life?

In response to Marty, we Asians celebrate Lunar New Year as our own customs, just like how Mexicans celebrate Cinco de Mayo, the Irish celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and any other holiday. Meh, we only constitute 5% of the American population. So quit your nativism attitude.

In response to Vod, why don't you go up there and survey everyone for passports and social security cards eh?-_-.

Back to the article, whoa I've been to that temple regularly and from the photo, would never seen the courtyard fill with so much people. Thank gosh, I went somewhere else.

I for one am happy to have Chinese people in Hacienda Heights. Chinese people raise the property value in this area and they are clean, quiet, and polite people. Vlad and Marty: Ne yo fung pee
