This edition: Asian American Politicians Coming of Age

Episode Details

Original tape date: October 28, 2009.

On this edition of Independent Sources we catch up with Councilman John Liu, who's expected to win the race for city Comptroller.  We visit two Chinese enclaves in New York, one in Manhattan and one in Queens, where we discover two very different political climates.  We talk to a noted scholar and author about the political coming of age of Chinese Americans in New York.  We also look at national politics as we explore why immigration has become a hot topic in the debate over health care reform.
