Restaurant owner Eric Sansangasakun saw the novel coronavirus coming from thousands of miles away, and even then, he still wasn’t prepared for how much damage it would bring.
Like many other Asian immigrants in the United States, Sansangasakun — who co-owns Thai and sushi restaurant Gindi Thai in Burbank, California, with his brother, his sister-in-law, and a friend from Bangkok — still has loved ones back in Asia.

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — For a city that has so many bars, it’s ironic — and, well, downright egregious — that Lakewood doesn’t have its own brewery.
That’s all about to change with the expected spring opening of Immigrant Son Brewery, which is currently planned for the former Constantino’s Market location at 18120 Sloane Ave.Details
Nearly two million college-educated immigrants labor in jobs for which they are overqualified, or cannot find work at all.
The so-called “brain waste” phenomenon is costing California and other states billions of dollars per year in lost individual earnings and tax revenues, according to estimates by the Migration Policy Institute.
