    Dec 13, 2014 | Right Wing News

    Thursday Mar 5 | WTAQ-AM Green Bay

    At least some of the pregnant women from China caught up in raids this week on so-called maternity hotels, catering to foreign mothers-to-be seeking U.S. citizenship for their babies, are still likely to remain long enough in California to give birth on American soil. That's because U.S. immigration officials investigating "Chinese birthing houses" for alleged visa fraud, tax evasion and money laundering hope to coax their clients into providing testimony and evidence against operators of those businesses.

    Thus spoke Capulet upon seeing a lifeless Juliet in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet , and it is with a similarly heavy heart that we bid adieu to Gungho Tavern and Ho's Chinese Delivery, a hub of creativity upon Van Ness Avenue if ever there was one.
