Streetwise: America's greatest president
Chhary Phuon, Donut shop owner: I thought Ronald Reagan was the best President. He was in office when I immigrated here from Cambodia. I learned about him in high school here in Stockton. The war in Cambodia was over in 1979, and my family escaped to a refugee camp in Thailand. We finally got to the U.S. in 1987 and the Berlin Wall came down two years later. Despite being a Republican he helped enable a lot of Asian immigrants come to the U.S., and my family was grateful for that.
