SAN DIEGO—Today, Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement on the violent killing of eight people in three separate shootings in the Atlanta area:
“In the midst of rising anti-Asian sentiment we’re seeing in our country, we must be vocal and forthcoming about the horrific nature of these acts. As the representative of a vibrant and diverse AAPI community, I find it hard to believe that tragic events like this one won’t make Asian Americans in my district and throughout the country fear for their safety. My heart goes out to the victims’ families who can no longer see their loved ones, hear their voices or embrace them. Together, we must end hatred and violence that tears our nation apart.”
