"Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have a long history in the United States, despite the stereotype that they are โ€œperpetual foreigners,โ€ the idea that Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are inherently foreign, other and not truly American. According to the Bering Land Bridge Theory, Asians first migrated to what is now known as North America over 15,000 years ago through a land bridge between Asia and North America."
