Race and immigration have always been major issues in this country.  As a lucky immigrant from Taiwan in 1982 and becoming a US citizen later, I have a decent business, and live happily in an ocean front house with my wife and 86 year old mom.  All the people in my town are so nice and friendly to us; I tell everybody that although I could not choose to be born here, I choose to die here.   However, when I go outside of my town, I still face some challenges. 

In 2017, I was tangled up by a lawsuit with Hallmark.  After I rejected an offer for settlement, Hallmark started to play nasty and dirty.  In a 6 hour deposition in the presence of two court reporters and three lawyers, I was repeatedly grilled “DO YOU HAVE A GREEN CARD?” and threatened with “DEPORTATION”.  As a US citizen for 30 years, I do not mind that some people still call me “Chink” and ask me to “go back to China”, but I was extremely upset when it is directed by a company named “Hallmark” with more than 20,000 employees and a law firm named “Fox Rothschild” with 800 lawyers.  After I gave them some inappropriate answers, I was portrayed like another Harvey Weinstein in a motion for court sanction and in the media without a word mentioning Hallmark’s initiation of the problem, and my lawyers told me it could cost me more than $100,000.- . Fortunately, the Judge saw through Hallmark’s trick and made a decision that any questions about my immigration status can no longer be asked, and “All depositions in this case shall be held in the Central Islip courthouse” which saved me tremendous travelling expenses and time.  She told me “If you are angry, just stop it there. You don’t answer.  It comes to me”.  When she said “It is not necessary” (Transcript P30, L14) after I tried to apologize for my bad reactions in deposition, I almost cried.  

 This nation has already been divided by issues such as immigration and border walls, and we will not have easy answers shortly, but can we at least agree that all the US citizens and legalized immigrants should be treated equally?   With my personal experience with Hallmark, I also want to help people find a better way to respond if they are met with questions just because of their color.  From the inventor of sound cards which you find in the market, here comes the birth of “GREEN CARD”.

Each “GREEN CARD” will have a sound chip with questions such as “DO YOU HAVE A GREEN CARD?” or threat of “DEPORTATION” recorded by Court reporters, and we are anxious to get everyone’s involvement.  Please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

All the net proceeds generated from “GREEN CARD” will go to the support of the equality of legalized immigrants and US citizens.   For more details, please go to  for “GREEN CARD”.
