I think the perception is that Asians are more or less unique as a minority in the US, in that as a group, they're not really suffering the negative effects of discrimination- economically and academically, the Asian community is quite successful, even relative to white Americans.

On top of that, the perception is that they're also more conservative due to the perceived lack of discrimination. So like others have said, the left doesn't consider them a "real" minority, and the right doesn't like them as foreigners, but doesn't really have as much animus toward them because they tend to align that way.
