Toys 'R Us Disqulaifies "First Baby of Year"
The decision by Toys 'R Us to disqualify Yuki Lin as "First Baby of the Year" because her parents are undocumented immigrants is coming under fire by many, particularly in the Chinese community.
"People are just pretty much outraged," said John Wang, president of the 13-year-old Asian American Business Development Center, on Wall Street, adding that he was perplexed by the company's actions.
"The schools accept children whose parents are illegal aliens in this country, so why is Toys 'R' Us taking this kind of position?" he asked. "They're supported by many people, whether they're legal or illegal, shopping in their stores, and they're injecting themselves into this debate."
