President Joe Biden commended Queens Congresswoman Grace Meng and her colleagues for their leadership in the fight against anti-Asian violence as the Senate passed the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act to protect Asian Americans last week. 

“I am grateful to Senator Hirono, Senator Duckworth, Congresswoman Meng and CAPAC’s chair, Congresswoman Chu, for their persistent and courageous leadership on this issue — and I look forward to swift consideration and passage in the House of Representatives, and signing this important legislation into law,” Biden said in a statement.
