As the proud Representative of the district with the highest percentage of Asian Americans in the country, I rise today in strong support of H.Res.908 to condemn any and all forms of anti-Asian discrimination during and beyond this COVID-19 pandemic.
Our country confronts not only the novel coronavirus but also a virus of racism and hate. We cannot allow the one to feed off the other.
On behalf of all Americans, we have a moral responsibility to call out and condemn this wave of racist hate speech, harassment, discrimination and physical violence driven by fear, disinformation and even purposeful exploitation.
I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this resolution Without reservation and speak out against racism against any group in any form.
Thank you, and I yield back.
