 參院通過反歧視亞裔法案

 參院今天以九十四對一票壓倒性票數通過反歧視亞裔法案,立促司法部加強審查有關對亞裔歧視案,此案即將送交眾議院通過後,拜登縂統會簽署生效。
 這項法案是在三月十六日亞特蘭大多名亞裔女性在按摩院被槍殺後由華裔眾議員孟江文及夏威夷日裔參議員弘野共同提出。

 這項遅来的正義,將明確地向全國發出非常強烈的訊息,我們將從執法單位和民間共同支持反對種族歧視和法律規範。

 知名的華裔媒體人鍾毓華今天在接受媒體訪問時說,這些不幸之仇視亞裔事件,已經累積了近四千起,主要原因還是要归罪於前總統川普把新冠病毒称之為中國病毒,功夫病毒” ,他的不實稱呼導致許多國人對亞裔之仇恨和偏見。

 我們要在此大聲疾呼,特別感謝國會之立法,希望政府有關執行部門要認真接受和調查數千件反亞裔案件,我們社區更要加強团結,互助合作,共同應對反亞裔之不法行徑。





Senate Passes Anti-Asian Hate Crime Bill

With a vote of 94-1 the Senate passed with a wide bipartisan majority yesterday a bill denouncing discrimination against Asian communities in the United States.

The bill would also direct the Department of Justice to issue guidance raising awareness of hate crimes during the pandemic and will establish an online reporting system.

The bill was sponsored by New York Democratic representative Grace Meng and Hawaii Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono following the March 16th shooting of six Asian women in Atlanta.

After the bill passed, Senator Hirono said that this bill sends a clear and unmistakable message of solidarity to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.

Connie Chung, former CBS correspondent, told CNN that the increase in hate crimes was created by former President Trump calling the COVID-19 virus the “China Virus.”

We are really happy that Congress finally acted on the hate crime legislation. We also want to remind our community leaders to be united to speak out about our problem.

It is very sad that when many of our brothers and sisters are still fighting the pandemic that they also need to fight with the hate crimes.

 We urge President Biden to speed up and sign the bill so that all the law enforcement agencies will pay more attention to it.
