Hong Kong, China
Hong Kong relatives of Chinese migrants cry after being expelled from a park in central Hong Kong, April 25, 2002. The residency issue flared up in 2002 when Hong Kong began deporting some 4,000 mainland Chinese who lost legal battles to stay in the territory. So-called "abode seekers" and their supporters staged protests, including surrounding the car of the island's security chief Regina Ip.
