GRAYSLAKE – State Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) released the following statement in response to the United States House resolution condemning the Chinese government’s handling of the novel coronavirus response:

“There is no doubt the Chinese government’s initial downplaying of the novel coronavirus exacerbated its spread. But this resolution puts Americans in danger. The virus doesn’t have a zip code or borders and pinning the blame on a specific country or geographical location only spreads animosity and hatred. The attacks on Asian Americans in recent weeks related to COVID-19 are unpatriotic and un-American. This is not who we are. 

“Even as feelings of fear and anxiety run high, we need to pull together as a country and show the world the best of who we are. I condemn all anti-Asian American hate crimes and I urge my colleagues and fellow Americans to stand with me in support of the Asian American community here in Illinois, around the county, and the world.” 

House Resolution 907 can be read on congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-resolution/907?s=4&r=1.
