Some of the Immigrants to the USA are Changing the World

Westminister, California: Meet Frank Jao; he came from Vietnam yet he has deep Chinese roots. We had the honor of spending a day with him and his family. In 1975 they came to the USA on a C-130 (military aircraft) to Camp Pendleton.
They had nothing.
He was the middle child of a large, poor family, a Vietnamese mother and Chinese father. At the age of 11 he got a job delivering newspapers. By the age of 13 he had six "employees" and they were the delivery system for a Da Nang newspaper. By the time he turned 18 he was working for the US Marines.
That was 1979. Today, Bridgecreek literally owns millions of square feet in California and in China; and he has inspired the development of even more. California has become his home and the home of over 400K Vietnamese and their de facto capital outside of Vietnam.
Immigrants to the USA remind us that this land is a light on the hill, a beacon to the world. We know that business works best within a democratic, ethical society. Where there is trust, capital can be leveraged. The miracle of our Bill of Rights and the Constitution is the focus on both our freedoms and responsibilities. In this light, there is no better story for us to tell than that of two people who in 1975 came here with nothing yet today they redefine wealth and have forever changed the face of this nation.
Keep an eye out for the American Flag. It keeps popping up among all the other cultural symbols of these Asian people. A symbol of freedom and liberty, it is on everything - from buildings to ties - and for a reason.
Meet five families (each picture goes to a video), all immigrants to the USA. Within each family, they bond together on a common focus and have built businesses that are truly making our world a better place. All have built multi-million dollar businesses from nothing. These are the stories we all need to be studying to understand the unique experiment that is called "The USA." More...
