    Hong Kong residents protest against foreign maids to apply for permanent residency outside the High Court in Hong Kong Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012. Hong Kong's government is appealing a landmark court ruling last year opening the way for foreign maids to apply for permanent residency in a case that has divided the city over concerns about ethnic discrimination and strains on social services. Government lawyer David Pannick argued Tuesday the ruling was wrong because it limits authorities from deciding who is eligible to permanently settle in Hong Kong. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)
