反亚裔仇恨罪的备忘录如何履行? 华裔组织力挺费城见义勇为华裔女生!

美国亚裔教育联盟强烈要求联邦和地方政府采取有效措施,

以控制日益上升的反亚裔暴力和仇恨犯罪

2021年11月22日,美国亚裔教育联盟(AACE)发表以下声明,强烈要求联邦和地方政府采取有效措施,以控制日益上升的反亚裔暴力和仇恨犯罪:

“AACE对针对亚裔学生和亚裔社区其他成员的暴力和仇恨犯罪不断上升感到极度愤慨。我们强烈谴责11月17日克里斯蒂娜·卢在费城遭受到因种族仇恨所驱使的暴力毒打事件、11月9日郑少雄同学在芝加哥大学被抢劫谋杀事件、以及许多发生在纽约和全国各地的反亚裔犯罪。

2021年1月26日,拜登总统签署备忘录,谴责并承诺打击针对美国亚裔的种族主义、仇外心理和不容忍行为。然而,这一受政治驱动的备忘录只把焦点放在特朗普总统对新冠病毒的用词上面。它未能解决导致反亚裔暴力和仇恨罪上升的许多根本原因,例如削减警察经费和在新冠疫情期间不负责任地提前释放暴力犯罪分子。

因此,2021年4月6日,AACE致函美国司法部长Garland,敦促美国司法部采取无党派、全面的措施,有效解决针对亚裔社区的暴力、仇恨犯罪和系统性种族主义上升背后的根源所在。

不幸的是,在拜登总统签署备忘录近十个月后,反亚裔暴力和仇恨犯罪仍未得到控制。亚裔社区继续遭受暴力和仇恨罪的伤害。因此,我们强烈要求:

1、所有地方政府都应该立即中止其削减警察经费以及从监狱提前释放暴力罪犯等不负责任的政策。

2、在亚裔常常受到暴力和仇恨犯罪伤害的城市,包括但不限于费城、芝加哥、纽约和旧金山大都市区,市政府应成立特别工作组,采取具体行动减少犯罪,以保护亚裔社区的生命和财产安全。

3、美国司法部应向亚裔社区汇报其已经采取哪些具体行动来有效保护亚裔社区。司法部还需要披露它如何使用国会用来减少反亚洲暴力和仇恨犯罪这3000万美元专项拨款的使用状况。

4、司法部应该对费城发生的对克里斯蒂娜·卢的野蛮袭击展开仇恨犯罪调查,并根据联邦仇恨罪法起诉肇事者。

5、拜登政府应该对针对亚裔社区的暴力和仇恨犯罪不断上升的原因进行全面的无党派调查,公布调查结果,并采取效行动以解决所有根源问题。”

AACE主席赵宇空先生在发布声明时说:“拜登总统签署备反亚裔仇恨罪的备忘录十个月已经过去了,针对亚裔的仇恨和暴力犯罪仍在上升。不幸的是,拜登政府把精力集中描述新冠病毒的词语上了,所以未能解决这些暴力事件背后的很多根源问题,例如削减警察经费及从监狱提前释放暴力罪犯。亚裔社区现在最需要的是全面而有效的解决方案,而不仅仅是玩弄政客的文字游戏。”

AACE Demands Effective Actions from the Federal and Local Governments To Address Rising Anti-Asian Violence and Hate Crimes

On November 22, 2021, Asian American Coalition for Education (AACE) released the following statement to demands effective actions from the federal and local governments to address rising anti-Asian violence and hate crimes:

“Asian American Coalition for Education is outraged by the rising violence and hate crime against Asian American students and other members of our community. We strongly denounce the brutal assault of Christina Lu in Philadelphia on November 17 by a group of racially motivated perpetrators, the heartless murder of Shaoxiong Zheng at the University of Chicago on November 9, and many anti-Asian crimes that have happened in New York City and around our nation.

On January 26, 2021, President Biden signed Memorandum Condemning and Combating Racism, Xenophobia, and Intolerance Against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. However, this Memorandum was politically driven, narrowly focusing on President Trump’s use of words to describe COVID-19. It failed to address many root causes of the rising anti-Asian violence and hate crimes, such as defunding the police and irresponsible release of violent criminals during the pandemic.

As a result, on April 6, 2021, AACE sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Garland, urging the U.S. Department of Justice to take a non-partisan, holistic approach to effectively address the root causes behind rising violence, hate crimes and systemic racism against the Asian-American community.

Unfortunately, almost ten months after President Biden signed the Memorandum, the anti-Asian violence and hate crimes have not been controlled. Asian American communities continue to suffer from the rising violence and hate crimes against us. As a result, we strongly demand:

1、All local governments stop their irresponsible policies of defunding police or releasing violent criminals from jails.

2、In the cities where Asian Americans have been often harmed by anti-Asian violence and hate crimes, including but not limited to Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and great San Francisco metropolitan area, the municipal government should establish special task forces and take concrete actions to reduce crime and protect lives and properties of their Asian American communities.

3、The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) should report back to the Asian American community what specific actions it has taken or is planning to take to effectively protect the Asian American community. DOJ also needs to disclose how it uses the $30 million funding appropriated to reduce the anti-Asian violence and hate crimes.

4、DOJ should launch a hate crime investigation with the brutal assault of Christina Lu in Philadelphia, and prosecute the perpetrators under the federal hate crime law.

5、The Biden Administration should conduct a comprehensive non-partisan investigation of the rising violence and hate crimes against Asian American community, publish the findings and take actions to effectively address all of its root causes.”

When releasing the statement, AACE President, Mr. Yukong Mike Zhao said: “It has been over 10 months since the Biden Administration vowed to combat anti-Asian hate crimes. Unfortunately, the hate crime and violence against Asian communities are still rising. Unfortunately, by narrowly focusing its efforts on the use of words describing COVID-19, the Biden Administration failed to address many major root causes behind such horrendous crimes, such as defunding police and irresponsible release of violent criminals. Asian community needs comprehensive and effective solutions now, not just politically driven lip service.”
