Anaheim, CA – In response to the Supreme Court decision in United States v. Texas the case in which 26 Republican governors are suing to block the deferred action programs, Garden Grove Mayor Bao Nguyen called on President Obama and DHS to put a moratorium on deportations. Mayor Nguyen is running for Congress in California’s 46th district, which is 67% Latino. Mayor Nguyen issued the following statement:
I call on President Obama to use his authority to put an immediate halt on deportations. With so many people in DACA and DAPA, it’s the only responsible course of action. It’s only a temporary measure, so we also need Congress to act on immigration reform, which has been on the backburner for far too long. In Congress, I’ll fight for an immigration system that keeps families together, not tears them apart. Continue reading

U.S. Rep. Linda Chavez endorsed former State Legislator Lou Correa’s congressional campaign back in September but it looks like her sister Loretta has other ideas as she showed up today at a major fundraiser in Hollywood for Garden Grove Mayor Bao Nguyen’s congressional campaign.
Apparently Loretta convinced Nguyen to run – and while she has not come out publicly as his supporter it is pretty obvious that she has chosen a side in this race. Continue reading

“I’m excited to announce that I will be running for Congress in the place I have always called home. I can’t wait to take my passion, and the passions of so many others around me, to bring reform to Washington, D.C,” said Mayor Bao Nguyen on Tuesday.
Born in a Thailand refugee camp, Bao and his family arrived to the United States when he was only three months of age. His parents emigrated to the U.S. to ensure that their children would be provided with the opportunities that they otherwise would not have been given in Vietnam. Continue reading

Update on 2/10/13: None of the Santa Ana City Council Members showed up to the Tet Parade nor did I see any of the gay activists.
The controversy that has brewed all week will continue at the Tet Parade scheduled for this Sunday, February 10, at 9 am, at the intersection of Bolsa and Magnolia.
They gay activists who were told by the parade organizers that they could not participate in the parade sued the organizers but a Judge found against them this week.
In the wake of that court decision a number of local elected officials have declared that they will be boycotting the parade. This is by the way a parade that almost didn’t happen, as the City of Westminster is broke and couldn’t pay for it. Volunteers worked very hard to raise the money to hold the traditional Lunar New Year parade, in Little Saigon. Continue reading
From the OC Politics Blog
“A coalition of gay and lesbian groups lost its bid in court Thursday to force the Little Saigon Tet Parade organizers to include the group in this Sunday’s event. Orange County Superior Court Judge Geoffrey T. Glass ruled against granting injunctive relief to the Partnership of Viet Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Organizations,” according to the O.C. Register.
“For three years, LGBT activists have participated in the colorful gathering in Little Saigon, but this year — with the event shifting from city sponsorship to private hands — they have been rebuffed and quietly told to make a “sacrifice” and stay away, members said,” according to the L.A. Times. Continue reading
