Committee of 100 Urges Immigration Policy Consistent with American Values

  
(New York, NY, January 31, 2017) — As our nation considers how to define its identity through control of our borders, the Committee of 100 affirms the great ideals of this nation of immigrants. As an organization consisting of Chinese Americans, from those who arrived only recently to those whose families came more than a century ago, we celebrate the constant flow of immigration even as we understand the painful history that affected our ancestors. Chinese Americans in particular have had the experience of exclusion and expulsion, before achieving acceptance and equality. Our unique past offers particular insights for our shared future. We give pause when restrictive policies are not only proposed but implemented. These measures are judged to be ill-conceived in the fullness of time.

PRESS RELEASE: Committee of 100 Urges Cooperation to Address Targeted Violence Against Asian Americans

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Holly Chang, Executive Director
media@committee100.org or 212-371-6565

 
 

The Committee of 100 Urges Cooperation to Address
Targeted Violence Against Asian Americans 

(New York, NY, Oct. 6, 2016) — The Committee of 100 (C100) urges Asian American leaders to work with African American and other ethnic group leaders, as well as law enforcement, to address targeted violence against Asian Americans. A rap song “Meet the Flockers” by artist YG, released in 2014 but only attracting attention recently, contains an explicit message calling for home invasion burglaries of Chinese perceived to be vulnerable. 
All of us who care about our shared ideals in a diverse democracy should condemn this suggestion of criminal violence, regardless of who is the perpetrator and who is the victim. The targeting of a specific ethnic minority group, however, is egregious. Recently, there have been numerous confirmed reports of Asian Americans, especially immigrants, being singled out by race as robbery targets, whether on the street, while shopping, or in their homes. These are hate crimes and should be recognized as such.
