"We are a diverse group already. We have six or seven different nationalities. I'm Burmese, there is a Lebanese lady, a lady from Canada, there's one from Nigeria and there's one from Malaysia" Mrs Tieu said
"It seems to me that it would make sense to do the same thing across the state in cases of non-compliance and we need to extend the government's temporary ban into a permanent one."
"I'm sure there are people who've sponsored others who just want to throw someone off a building."
"It's a national problem and we think it should be talked about at a national level and internationally."
