During a February 13th Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on worldwide threats,
Senator Rubio, FL, asked, "What...is the counter-intelligence risk posed to U.S. National Security
from Chinese students, particularly those in advanced programs in the sciences &
FBI Director Wray responded that Chinese students and scholars pose a
national security threat that requires "a whole-of-society response by us." - a view that is
shared among U.S. intelligence officials.
Would such a view lead to the internment of all persons of Chinese
descent, whether they are from China, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, or
Singapore, ..., etc., IF and WHEN the relationship between our nation and China turns confrontational? Will such a view adversely affect the careers
and even daily lives
of all U.S. citizens of Chinese descent, even when they are apolitical
to you to judge.
The Statement From FBI Director Wray
Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus,
to see superb responses from
, CAPAC Chair, Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-33),
CAPAC Whip, and
Grace Meng (NY-06).
"The Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) is comprised of Members of
of Asian and Pacific Islander descent and members who have a strong dedication to
well-being of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. "
80-20 STRONGLY Recommends for
the top leader of all Asian Am organizations, large or small, to work with
as equals to support the CAPAC statements. P
lease reply to this email. When we have more than 250 AsAm orgs standing together, we'll call a national press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. to declare our United Stand. Reply
now! Hang together or hang separately!
We strongly believe that this is the best
political action that our entire AsAm community can take to protect ourselves for
(a) Too many statements from various
of our community may only detract from the internal cohesiveness that our community must
demonstrate at this critical juncture, and
(b) Poorly-considered statements by
immature AsAm organizations can be exploited by unprincipled politicians as evidence that American
citizens of Chinese
should be profiled.
FORWARD this email to leaders of various AsAm orgs.
