S. CON. RES. 53


_______________________________________________________________________


                    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

                           September 6, 2000

               Referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

_______________________________________________________________________

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
   Condemning all prejudice against individuals of Asian and Pacific 
                 Island ancestry in the United States.

Whereas the belief that all persons have the right to life, liberty, and the 
        pursuit of happiness is a truth that individuals in the United States 
        hold as self-evident;
Whereas all individuals in the United States are entitled to the equal 
        protection of law;
Whereas individuals of Asian and Pacific Island ancestry have made profound 
        contributions to life in the United States, including the arts, the 
        economy, education, the sciences, technology, politics, and sports, 
        among other areas;
Whereas individuals of Asian and Pacific Island ancestry have demonstrated their 
        patriotism by honorably serving to defend the United States in times of 
        armed conflict, from the Civil War to the present;
Whereas recent allegations of espionage and illegal campaign financing involve 
        allegations of misconduct by certain individuals, such allegations 
        should not result in questioning the loyalty and probity of individuals 
        of the same or similar ancestry in the United States, simply due to such 
        ancestry; and
Whereas individuals of Asian and Pacific Island ancestry have suffered 
        discrimination and unfounded accusations of disloyalty throughout the 
        history of the United States, resulting in discriminatory laws, 
        including the former Act of May 6, 1882 (22 Stat. 58, chapter 126) 
        (often referred to as the ``Chinese Exclusion Act'') and a 1913 
        California law relating to alien-owned land, and discriminatory actions, 
        including internment of patriotic and loyal individuals of Japanese 
        ancestry during the Second World War, the repatriation of Filipino 
        immigrants, and the prohibition of individuals of Asian and Pacific 
        Island ancestry from owning property, voting, testifying in court, or 
        attending school with other people in the United States: Now, therefore 
        be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That--
            (1) Congress condemns all prejudice against individuals of 
        Asian and Pacific Island ancestry in the United States; and
            (2) it is the sense of Congress that--
                    (A) no individual in the United States should 
                stereotype or generalize the actions of an individual 
                to an entire group of people;
                    (B) individuals of Asian and Pacific Island 
                ancestry in the United States are entitled to all due 
                process rights and privileges afforded to all 
                individuals in the United States; and
                    (C) all executive agencies should act within their 
                respective jurisdictions in accordance with existing 
                civil rights laws.

            Passed the Senate July 27, 2000.

            Attest:

                                                    GARY SISCO,

                                                             Secretary.
