S. CON. RES. 53
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
September 6, 2000
Referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
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
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
Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring),
(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.
