Abstract:
This issue brief will succinctly discuss the history of the first Asian Americans and their isolation into "Chinatowns and Koreantowns." It will then consider how the "model minority" is a misrepresentation of Asian Americans. Lastly, it will demonstrate that "illegal immigration" is an issue concerning Asians and not just Latinos.
