Chinese Americans Support Solis to be Labor Secretary

World Journal, Posted: Dec 20, 2008

LOS ANGELES Chinese Americans in Southern California are excited about President-elect Obamas would-be nomination of Congresswoman Hilda Solis (D-CA) to be labor secretary. Chinese Americans in Southern California, the World Journal reports, call Solis friend of Chinese Americans and light of San Gabriel. Solis represents the 32nd Congressional District, which includes Rosemead and Monterey Park, cities with large Chinese-American populations. California Assemblymember Mike Eng, who is Chinese American, said Obama made the right choice in nominating Solis, the newspaper reports. Eng has been working with Solis for over 20 years, and they have pushed for immigration reform together. Eng said he believes that Solis, who will be the first Cabinet member from the San Gabriel area, will bring Southern Californians voices to the new administration.
