Queens congresswoman commends U.S. attorney general for taking action to combat hate crimes

Congresswoman Grace Meng commended U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland for putting forward a plan to better combat hate incidents. 

The steps are outlined by the attorney general in a memorandum released on Thursday, May 27, and are the result of Meng’s COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act and a 30-day review of how the Department of Justice can better use its resources to counter hate crimes and hate incidents. President Biden signed Meng’s bill into law last week.
