See his SIGNED PROMISE, click on
The promises are:
(1) make it his "top priority" to drastically INCREASE the number of Asian Am. life-tenured federal judges in both the District and the Appeals Courts levels;
(2) break the glass ceiling against Asian Ams in universities; and
(3) break the glass ceiling against Asian Ams in private industries.
Pres. Obama has honored at least 2 of 3 promises. Here are the facts.
UNDER (1) ABOVE, Pres. Obama has just appointed TWO MORE.
o Jacqueline H. Nguyen, a Vietnamese American, to serve on the 9th Appeals Court, and
o Miranda Mai Du, another Vietnamese American, to serve as a District Judge for the District. of Nevada
In 3 years, he has DOUBLED the number of Asian Am judges, with 2 in Appeals Court level.
UNDER (2) ABOVE, there has been MORE Asian Am. presidents/provosts appointed to BIG universities than what had been in the ENTIRE history of America. 80-20 just learnt of yet another recent appointment:
o Amado Gabriel Esteban, Filipino American, appointed to be the President of Seton Hall University in 2011, the first president of that university who is not a Cathlolic preiest.
One Uncertain Area!
Under (3), 80-20 is not sure if there has been much progress. Therefore, S. B. Woo & Ved Chaudhary just made an appointment to see the director of OFCCP, Department of Labor, Patricia Shiu. They'll meet on Oct. 31 in Washington D.C.
80-20 shall also meet with Pres. Obama early next year to review the progress
in the private industries area.
