Kao Xiong, a Hmong
refugee, shot and killed five of his children
and then himself in Sacramento in 1999. The
family of nine lived in a $310 one-bedroom
apartment on Xiong`s $1000 monthly groundskeeper
salary and his wife`s $500 welfare check.
Apparently Xiong had his eye on a spiffy new hunting
jacket that cost several hundred dollars. The wife
probably thought the money could be better spent on food
for the brood. An argument ensued. Xiong then went to a
casino and gambled away $450. It was not long afterwards
that he shot the kids using a shotgun and high-powered

Lebanese immigrant living near Detroit who had a
serious gambling problem. By November 2000, he had
pulled $500,000 from his printing business to cover

able to make the adjustment to practicing medicine
in the US. He had not been in contact with his

Passionately wanting the American Dream of a middle

Skills and knowledge become more necessary to making
money. A century ago, an immigrant could more easily get
an unskilled job that would support a family. In today`s

work several jobs just to survive. Any bump along the

It is hard to live in a strange country where you don`t
speak the language and live in a limited cocoon with
others of your tribe, alienated from the mainstream
community. Multicultural cheerleaders like to downplay
how difficult immigration can be

circumstances. But many immigrant crimes have some basis
in the interior culture clash and the
ongoing stress of social maladjustment.
Less cheerleading for the multicultural delusion and
more honesty from the MSM about diversity`s downside
would be welcome. Less sentimental, more honest
reporting about the real immigrant experience might even
save some lives down the road.
