Jacobs’ vote an attack on Asian-Americans

Dear Editor:

Congressman Chris Jacobs once again shows his totally grotesque subservience to President Trump. In a vote on the House Resolution, (H.R. 908), that condemns all forms of anti-Asian racism, Mr. Jacobs voted no. The bill reads: “The resolution recommits U.S. leadership to (1) prioritize language access and inclusivity in communication practices and (2) combat misinformation and discrimination that puts Asian-Americans at risk.” This is what our Congressman voted against.

Our congressman favors treating Asian-Americans as second class citizens.

I am reminded of a poem by Lutheran pastor Martin Niemoller: “First they came for…”. But in this case you could substitute migrant farm workers for the first one attacked by Mr. Jacobs and now Asian-Americans.

Chris Jacobs’ blatant racism needs to be called out and he needs to be voted out of the House of Representatives. I strongly urge voting for Nate McMurray this November.

Thank you
