Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC submitted testimony for the record for the Democratic Member Roundtable entitled, “Researching while Chinese American: Ethnic Profiling, Chinese American Scientists and a New American Brain Drain” held on June 30, 2021 by the U.S. House of Representatives, Subcommittee of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) in Washington, D.C. We are deeply concerned about the federal government’s investigations and prosecutions of racial, ethnic, and national origin profiling and discriminatory investigations and prosecutions of Asian Americans and Asian immigrants, harming the lives of not just individuals, their families, and communities, but eroding the health of our democracy. We encourage the subcommittee to consider the facts below and exercise further oversight activities to end these government activities, which are harming individuals, their families and the greater Asian American community.
