S. CON. RES. 44
Recognizing the contributions of Asian Pacific Americans to our Nation.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
May 14, 2003
Mr. Akaka submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was
referred to the Committee on the JudiciaryYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Recognizing the contributions of Asian Pacific Americans to our Nation.
Whereas at the direction of Congress in 1978, the President proclaimed the week
beginning May 4, 1979, as Asian Pacific American Heritage Week,
providing the people of the United States with an opportunity to
recognize the achievements, contributions, history, and concerns of
Asian Pacific Americans;
Whereas the seven day period starting May 4 was designated Asian Pacific
Heritage Week as it marks two historical dates--May 7, 1843, when the
first Japanese immigrants arrived in the United States, and May 10,
1869, Golden Spike Day, when, with substantial contributions from
Chinese immigrants, the first transcontinental railroad was completed;
Whereas the 102nd Congress by law designated that the month of May be annually
observed as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month;
Whereas according to the U.S. Census Bureau an estimated 12.5 million United
States residents trace their ethnic heritage, in full or in part, to
Asia and the Pacific Islands;
Whereas Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders can list innovative contributions
to all aspects of life in the United States ranging from the first
transcontinental railroad to the Internet;
Whereas in the mid-1700's Filipino sailors formed the first Asian American and
Pacific Islander communities in the bayous of Louisiana;
Whereas Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have added to the vast cultural
wealth of our Nation; and
Whereas Americans of Asian Pacific heritage, who include immigrant and
indigenous populations, have honorably served to defend the United
States in times of armed conflict from the Civil War to the present:
Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring),
(1) recognizes that the United States draws its strength
from its diversity, including contributions made by Asian
Americans and Pacific Islanders;
(2) recognizes that the Asian American and Pacific Islander
community is a thriving and integral part of American society
(3) supports the goals of Asian Pacific Heritage Month; and
(4) recognizes the prodigious contributions of Asian
Americans and Pacific Islanders to the United States.
