On Arnie

On Wednesday, July 21, California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger met with San Diego residents at the Cheesecake Factory in the Fashion Valley Mall.  That evening San Diego’s KUSI reported on his visit. They showed footage of the California Governor shaking hands with visitors from China.  I was stunned to hear his exchange with the visitors.  He said something like  this: “where are you from…china…great..make sure you stay here for a long time, two or three years.”   Bad immigration advice.  Generally, a foreign visitor is only allowed to stay in the U.S. for six months.   For obvious reaons, it is dangerous for a public official to give misleading information.   Although I shouldn’t be too surprised as Mr. Schwarzeneggar, an Austrian immigrant, has had his share of immigration troubles.   He himself has been suspected of violating the federal immigration laws.
