Maid Brings Residency Fight to HK Top Court

 — A Filipino maid has taken her fight for permanent residency to Hong Kong's top court, reports AP/Bradenton Herald. Lawyers for Evangeline Banao Vallejos were presenting arguments to the Court of Final Appeal on Tuesday. Her legal team was granted permission last year to appeal a lower court's rejection of her bid. Vallejos along with another Filipino national are seeking a landmark ruling that would let thousands of other foreign domestic helpers settle in the southern Chinese financial center.
