Tung Nguyen, PIVOT president
Some people think America is the system that was built by the Constitution. And represented by its leaders. I do not agree. America is an idea. America cannot be found in its institutions, which are only the results of the idea.

Dr. Tung Nguyen, PIVOT President
When I was young, I worked in my parents’ Vietnamese grocery store in San Jose, California. Most of the Vietnamese shoppers paid with Food Stamps. As a doctor, most of my Vietnamese American patients are covered by Medicaid or the Affordable Care Act, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers their children. Hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese Americans have benefited from these federal government programs, which allowed us to live and raise our children to be successful and to contribute to America. That is why PIVOT is very concerned about a proposed federal regulation called “Public Charge,” which will be used to prevent anyone who uses any of these programs from getting legal permanent resident status, or “green card.”
