CCTV-AMERICA -- David Lee, executive director of the Chinese American Voters Committee and a Political Science lecturer at San Francisco State University, joined an on-air panel discussion on capturing the immigrant vote. “Asian Americans are excited about this election; they are invigorated, We are registering record numbers of voters at immigration ceremonies,” Lee says. “The rhetoric from Donald Trump and from the Republicans frankly scares a lot of Asian Americans, and many have become citizens because they are fearful that a Trump presidency may mean the loss of freedoms and benefits that they enjoy today as residents of the United States. So more and more people are becoming citizens, registering to vote and getting involved. “I think we‘re going to have very high Asian American turnout nationally ... and particularly in the battleground states of Nevada and Virginia.”
