Lower East Side Voices: The Freedom Swimmer

Must Read

The Trump administration’s crackdown on immigration is dominating the national political discussion. Here on the Lower East Side, perhaps this country’s most famous neighborhood of immigrants, the new president’s policies are obviously a hot topic of conversation.

We asked the reporting team at CUNY Journalism School’s NY City News Service to fan out across the LES in search of perspectives on the immigration issue. In our Lower East Side Voices series this week, we’ll be featuring video interviews of immigrants in this community about their experiences in America and how they feel about the Trump agenda.

First up today is Chris Chung, a Chinatown resident who swam to Hong Kong in 1972, moved to the U.S. two years later and has never looked back. The story was produced by Mallory Moench.
