Leading Chinese American scholars decry racial profiling from Trump’s hard-line policies against China
U.S. Rep. Judy Chu (D-Monterey Park) said racial profiling is getting worse. She said she is constantly fighting what she called anti-Chinese legislation, including a current effort to essentially prevent transit agencies from using public funds on rail cars or buses from companies owned, controlled or subsidized by the Chinese government. That would bar any contracts to BYD, a Chinese leader in electric buses with which LA Metro has contracted for 100 such vehicles.
Chu urged the audience to educate the public about the effect of the federal crackdown on Chinese Americans, seek allies and speak out.
