Westminster City Councilman Andy Quach and Assemblyman Van Tran (R-Garden Grove) are two of Orange County's most prominent Vietnamese American elected officials. Quach found himself on the defensive this week regarding his recent arrest on suspicion of drunk driving, and Tran deflected criticism of his involvement during the police investigation. Some have called for Quach to step down. Others have rallied around him and said the incident should not tarnish his record.

Re "Welcome to Our Cities, Unless You're Communist," April 28: Shame on Garden Grove City Council member Van Tran, Westminster City Councilman Andy Quach and the rest of the rabidly anti-communist Vietnamese community. As with the 1999 incident involving Truong Van Tran [who touched off protests in Westminster by hanging the Communist Vietnam flag in his shop], the Vietnamese exiles have shown that they believe in freedom of speech only when it dovetails with their own. On issues that truly affect the local community like, say, the Westminster School District's potential loss of state funds, where were Quach and the Vietnamese community?

About 100 people waving flags of the U.S. and the former republic of South Vietnam demonstrated their support Sunday for President Bush and against Iraq in the Little Saigon business district. Vinh Xuan Nguyen, one of the organizers, said the show of support for Bush was, in part, to counter some of the antiwar protests taking place around the nation. "We are observing the American antiwar protesters demonstrating in the streets," Nguyen said.
