Mike Eng - Assemblymember
Assemblymember Mike Eng represents the 49th District in eastern Los Angeles County, including the cities of Alhambra, El Monte, Monterey Park, Rosemead, San Gabriel, San Marino, and South El Monte. The district has one of the largest Chinese populations in the country and has replaced Chinatown as the center of commerce for the Chinese community. Mistakenly called by some the "Chinese Beverly Hills," the San Gabriel Valley has afforded Chinese Americans with the opportunity to move beyond segregated enclaves historically denoted for Chinese in Los Angeles and opened up affordable housing to hundreds of "American Born Chinese" residents and new immigrants after the Immigration Act of 1965. We sat down with Mike Eng to talk about his personal and political journey and authored resolution, (ACR) 76, which proposes a day of inclusion for all Californians, a sort of homage to the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882.
