9. And, what would be built to keep the Chinese from coming on the Pacific ocean ?

While the focus is on an age old situation with Mexicans, Chinese immigrants ( legal and not ) have been flooding in. Nearly 3 million here in Southern California in the past 10 years. Entire cities have become enclaves for this group. The latest fad is " baby hotels. " The women come here pregnant and deliver their newborn American citizens and return home to await that child's maturity and ability to sponsor the family later.
The cost of housing here in the San Gabriel Valley has soared, as they--unlike Mexicans-- come loaded with cash and will pay ridiculous amounts for properties they want.

So while most people are zeroed in on Hispanics trying to join their families and seek a better life, the better heeled Asians are welcomed with open wallets.
