The sheer number of activists proves how urgent an
issue immigration has become.These people are afraid,that republican politicians are going to declare undocumented immigrants as being felons.

This should not be done: Neither now-nor later,
because the U.S. is an immigrants country.
To force it to become something else would not
even be beneficial to the U.S. very own interests.
This means that arresting these people is not
acceptable for a democracy.Politicians aught to
rather fast-track the immigration-reform, as well
as realize that to dream that never again
there´ll be any immigrants is patently unrealistic
as well as reflective of the republican attitude
that they believe they own the country.
If the Indians didn´t own it, the present powers
that be also don´t.By stopping demonstrations like
this one, they are sending ther message that if
immigrants want to get things done, they´d better start digging tunnels underneath the U.S.- Mexican borderand arm immigrants right now:
Intolerance is the wrong attitude and it will lead to the wrong results as well.
The U.S.-government needs to start thinking of the
world as a whole, with it´s 7 Billion plus inhabitants:To just think of U.S.-interests is
going to lead to medium-size medium term, and
consequently to long-term x-sized problems.
The attitude that one is capable of controlling
whatever situation with the use of laws , spy-
programs- and wars is plainly speaking unintelligent,expensive, as well as even lethal.
"Think it over" is all I´ll say to this!

A national survey found that Asian-American females have lower rates of intimate partner violence than other groups. But, violence experts think this may be due to under-reporting.

Community-based studies results, find that Asian-American women are more likely than any other group to face intimate partner violence in their lifetime.

Asians reluctant to seek help for domestic violence

Asian-American victims of domestic violence rarely seek help from police or health care providers –“an alarming trend” among the fastest-growing racial group in the United States, says a Michigan State University researcher.
