Video: Woman to Long Beach Couple, "Go Back to your Home Country"


Cellphone video of a counselor at Golden West College telling a Long Beach couple, “You need to go back to your home country,” has gone viral.

Tony Kao and his wife were walking with their infant when the camera turns on as Kao tries to affirm Tarin Olson's remarks.

Kao says he and his wife were both born and raised in the United States.

CBS2 News spoke to Olson at her home and though they report she refused to be on camera she did provide a statement:

“I feel my perspective will be twisted if discussing the skewed video which cut out part of the incident.[…] If you would like to have a full normal interview about the displacement of European-Americans then I gladly am available to enlighten the public.”

Her employer, Golden West College also issued a statement on their Facebook page:

The college says they will be handling the issue internally since this is considered a personnel manner.
