Undocumented Chinese Immigrants Worried In AZ

 China Press, News Report

PHOENIX - Undocumented Chinese immigrants are under more stress as a result of Arizona's new immigration law, and they are rely on the church for comfort, reports the China Press. After coming to America, they joined the "restaurant fellowship," working in Chinese restaurants and seeking help from Christian churches to obtain legal status. A Chinese business owner, after losing an asylum case, now faces deportation and separation from his family. He is placing his hope on the church and leaving his "fate in the hands of God."

A large portion of Chinese restaurant customers and staff in Arizona are Latino, but many of them fled the state in fear of the new law. Many Chinese business owners have to now close down and are left with an uncertain future. One Chinese woman is afraid to go to work or even leave her house. Another who works as a waitress at a Chinese restaurant said the law has made her stress reach a new peak and is lucky to have the Christian fellowship to encourage and support her. Several believe all there is left to do is pray.
