[Miami, Florida - May 29, 2007] OCA-South Florida Chapter and United Chinese Association of Florida joined forces and held an informative Crime Prevention Community Forum with support of North Miami Beach Police Department after the shooting death of Ray Ng in his family’s Chinese Restaurant in Tamarac on Mother’s Day.
On Monday, 5/21/2007, more than 40 people attended the Forum to learn safety tips on how to protect oneself before, during and after a robbery. The most important messages are to stay calm, not to have any direct contact with the intruder, never resist but follow the intruder’s instructions and how to be a good witness. The two-hour session, given by Thomas Carney, Director of Police Service – Crime Prevention Unit of North Miami Beach Police Department, was translated into Cantonese.
Roger Ni, OCA-South Florida Chapter member, gave a presentation on a close circuit television security system for better protection of business property and individual safety. “Besides learning techniques how to protect ourselves, it would be better to have a good security system to protect our property as well as ourselves so that the intruder may think twice before robbing the business with security system,” stated Roger Ni.
“Due to the sad circumstance, I am pleased to see the Chinese community comes together to take a proactive action to learn about crime prevention with our police department,” said Chief Linda Loizzo of North Miami Beach Police Department. “This is the first time that we are hosting this program with the Asian American community.”
“After this meeting, you must remember two important tips – to stay calm and never resist,” instructed by Officer Thomas Carney, Director Police Service – North Miami Beach Police Department. “This may save your life because the intruder is as scare as you are. Any sudden movement or action may trigger the intruder to fire his gun.”
“It is important for us to know our policemen and learn the basic safety tips so we can protect ourselves,” stated Winnie Tang, President of OCA-South Florida Chapter. “We need to build a strong partnership between the business community and law enforcement for a safer environment to live and work. We are glad that the North Miami Beach Police Department is open to provide services to the community. A Thai restaurant owner felt so positive and useful that she will schedule a training for her employees to learn how to protect themselves and the business.”
SAFETY TIPS (Source: North Miami Beach Police Department)What to do before, during and after a robbery.Before• Make sure your business is well lit on the inside and outside.
• Make sure your windows are clear so you can see in from the outside.

During• Never resist, don’t scream or do anything that will call attention.
• Only talk to answer the robber’s questions.
• Pay close attention to details of the intruder.
• Stay calm.
After• Call police immediately.

[Miami, FL - May 11, 2007] OCA-South Florida Chapter is joining local immigrant groups to urge Senator Mel Martinez for his support on comprehensive immigration reform bill with a “Mother’s Day Card” campaign to plea “family separate no more”.
On May 7, about 20 local civil, faith based and immigrant organizations met at Miami Interethnic Dialogue event hosted by Church World Service - Miami. This is one of a national series of interethnic dialogues scheduled nationwide through mid-July. The dialogue is intended to give a broad cross section of participants from immigrant and U.S.-born communities and the business, labor, social services, government and faith communities a forum in which to speak out, listen to each other, and generate unified community action on this critical topic.
Attended organizations are Catholic Charities, Church World Service, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Esperanza USA, Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, Florida Immigrant Coalition, Human Services Coalition of Dade County, Interfaith Worker Justice-South Florida, International Organization for Migration, Killian Pines United Methodist Church, Miami Baptist Association, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, National Farm Worker Ministry, Organization of Chinese Americans-South Florida Chapter, People Acting for Community Together, United Methodist Church-Southeast District, We Count!, and Youth Co-Op.
Through the May 7 Dialogue, the community groups seek common ground to unite all immigrants for a better immigration policy.
During the dialogue, each local community has its own significant issues and concerns.
The Haitian community seeks for a better TPS (Temporary Protection Status) policy so their fellowmen would not risk their lives.
The Islamic community is experiencing unreasonable long waiting period to be sworn-in. They are filing a class-action lawsuit against this unfair treatment.
The immigrant youth group is concerned about funding cuts to KidCare with a negative impact on American-born children of undocumented parents or low-income families.
The agricultural and farm workers is worry about insurance and long waiting time for worker permits.
The Asian community supports policy that helps eliminate backlog of immediate family-based immigrants and will increase the number of visas available to immediate family members of residents.
In summarized of the May 7 Dialogue, all come together support the Congress and Senate should pass a comprehensive immigration reform policy without any delay for this session such as The Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy or “STRIVE Act” of 2007, is a bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill (HR 1645) that was introduced by U.S. House Representatives Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ).
Despite each community’s issues, we heard many stories that undocumented parent got picked up and family got broke up across the country.
From this weekend, Mother’s Day, through Father’s Day, we urge you to participate at this “Mother’s Day Card – an Immigrant’s plea to keep family together” campaign to support a comprehensive immigration reform policy.
“OCA is a national organization dedicated in advancing the social, economic and political well-being of Asian Pacific Americans. We have working very closed with locally and national groups on this comprehensive immigration reform policy so we will help form policies and not be dictated by passed policies,” said Winnie Tang, OCA-South Florida Chapter President.
